In the world of slang, sex slang is about as good as it gets. You can pretend to be appalled by this slang, if not the sexual practices described, but if you weren’t amused with the wit and creativity of unconventional vocabulary you wouldn’t be holding this book in your hands in the first place. We are hard-wired for a linguistic resourcefulness that always matches, and usually surpasses, our physical and sexual invention. Most sexual slang represents practices as old as the ages – newly discovered, of course, by the next generation. New sexual activity is extremely rare but you will find there’s always a word for it in these pages. The need for slang as an intimate language and defender of moral transgression is readily apparent. As the next generation is always inventing sex for the first time sex can never be entirely conventional. The excitement of discovery and danger, of outrage and rebellion against the mainstream, is evident in this small dictionary of sex slang.
