Until now, no dictionary has ever attempted to record the fascinating and often raunchy inventory of English sexual euphemisms.  Jordan Tate has confronted this task with gusto and the results are nothing short of gratifying.  The Contemporary Dictionary of Sexual Euphemisms is a hilarious, unabashed, at times shocking compilation of every sexual euphemism you’ve ever heard—and many more you haven’t. 

Would you be offended if someone called you a “back door burglar”? Ever heard of a “five against one”? Would you rather do the “Little Dutch Boy” or the “Little Red Riding Hood”?  Along with both a literal and a sexual definition of each euphemism, this dictionary also has photographs, and, of course, an example of each term used in a sentence—all in an effort to irreverently entertain and inform.
A perfect guilty pleasure for anyone who ever got a thrill looking up dirty words in the dictionary as a kid, the Contemporary Dictionary is also a must-have reference tool for those just plain too shy to ask what a “pearl necklace” really is.
