YOu are the second to ask - maybe I'm wrong, or the person who presented
the workshop on cultural sensitivity I attended recently, was wrong. I
asked a female colleague and she said it is offensive and vulgar to her,
too - it has sex for money connotations it her mind, mine, too. How
do I find out the actual entomology?
It owuld be nice tohave some of the context included so we could figure out
what you're talking about.
Entomology? Better check your dictionary for that word before you include it
in your paper.

This use of "entomology" is obviously one of those offensive idioms!
