ABOUT 100 RED FLAGS

Let's get one thing straight. Women do some ridiculous things. No big deal, right? Well be careful. They actually may mean a hell of a lot more than you think.

Each week we'll be releasing new red flags, but we're on the hunt for more. If you see one, send it in. If you love us, tell us. If you want to slap us, here's our virtual face. Go for it. We'll rest easily knowing we're right.

Et si de nombreux commentateurs se sont insurgés contre cette prétendue nouvelle tendance, les termes "bikini bridge" n'ont en fait rien de nouveau.

pin up, pin-up, pinup (W3)

Die Bezeichnung engl. "pinup", "pin-up" als Abkürzung für "pin-up girl" für "Fotomodell", "Spindmädchen" kam um 1943 auf und fand bereits 1944 den Weg nach Frankreich. Wörtlich läßt sich engl. "pin-up-girl" mit "Anheftmädchen" übersetzen (engl. "pin up" = "anheften", "anstecken").

Hello my name is Kate Donovan. Some of you will already know me from my site Kate's Pinups. I started my site and modeling career in late 2000. My intention was, and still is, to bring the true essence of what I believe to be pinup to the Internet all the while adding a little modern flavoring.

Having been able to make my site reasonably successful I have now turned my attention to the pinup genre as a whole. Put simply I love pinup and everything it embodies such as tease, erotica, glamour and celebrating the "art of being a woman". I think it has a very important place on the net despite all the lewd and hardcore sexual imagery that is so freely available today.

What's a wittol, and why were they once drummed out of town while sitting backwards on a horse? Is sacofricosis a crime, a disease or an hors d'oeuvre?

Dirty Words: The Story of Sex Talk
by Mark Morton
368pp, Atlantic Books, £12.99

Seductively billed as "the perfect book for lovers, and language-lovers, alike", Dirty Words attempts to catalogue every English word ever used for sexual purposes. In an orgy of etymological fervour, it ploughs into the roots of love, limerence, glamour, "cunnilingus" and fartleberries. There are 1,300 terms listed for the male sex organ, many of them amusingly surreal (hairy banana, blue-veined custard chucker, whoopee stick, finger puppet) and many others pitiably desperate (dangling participle, male interfemoral infidel). I doubt that this is the perfect book for lovers, but it's certainly the perfect book for anyone who can imagine themselves enlivening a dull dinner party by saying: "Did you know that the word felch denotes the act of sucking one's own semen out of another person's buttocks?"

The Lover's Tongue
A Merry Romp Through the Language of Love and Sex

(E?)(L?) http://www.insomniacpress.com/title.php?id=1-894663-51-9

This delightful book includes over 100 mini-essays explaining the origins and historical development of words in our language that pertain to love and sex. Do you know, for example, what a "78" is? Here's a hint: like the old 78 rpm records, the term refers to a man who is ... well, on the fast side!

Diligently researched, The Lover's Tongue is written in a light-hearted style. A dictionary of a different kind, this book is the perfect gift for that special someone, or for the connoisseur of language and history in your life.

An excerpt from the entry for "Nakedness":

Even in tenth century England, where a prevalence of cold drafts made bathing something of a rarity, Anglo-Saxon men and wif-men usually doffed their duds before engaging in a bit of the old dyrneforlegenes. When they did so, they could describe themselves as "unscrydd," "unbehelod," "nacod," or "baer." The first of these words, "unscrydd," meant "unclothed," formed from the negating prefix "un" and the verb "scrydan," meaning "to clothe."

Winner of the Alexander Kennedy Isbister Award for Non-Fiction.
