Sexual ranking[edit]

I'm considering starting an article on this subject - how so many people use systems of bases (which are mentioned here), rungs (of The Ladders - some of my friend have parallel Sex and Relationship Ladder, with the "philosphy" that you should always be at about the same rung of both), levels, purity tests, etc.

I think this should be a more linguistic article, on the slang itself, with a companion article on the ideas that drive that slang. --대조 | Talk 12:37, 11 December 2005 (UTC)

If you're going to refer to systems of bases, do bear in mind that this is very much a US-centred notion. Here in the UK, very few people are aware of the literal meaning of 'fourth base', let alone any sexual one. Scaramouche 15:40, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

Random passerby suggests: Fourth Base is pretty obscure; I think "scoring" is a more recognizable euphemism, and it must be related. If it is, it should be mentioned. If not, it should still be mentioned ("The term 'scoring', referring to sexual intercourse, does not actually derive from the baseball analogy, but actually ..."). Anybody up for it? - R

I know that scoring has that meaning in some places (most of the US?) but in my peer group (teenagers in Cape Town) it means first base, not fourth. --대조 | Talk 10:32, 17 December 2005 (UTC)

^^^Agrees with Taejo. NEVER heard of scoring used to mean fourth base, only (french) kissing.

Well, I've never heard 4th base at all (and by "at all" mean in sexual or non-sexual, slang or non-slang)... indeed, the only reference to home run/home plate I can think of as sexual slang is from the song Paradise by the Dashboard Light. 'Course, all this is original research so it doesn't matter. The Literate Engineer 05:33, 28 December 2005 (UTC)

I have heard of both and "4th base" was always slang for vaginal intercourse. Which incidentally is the understood meaning for "scoring" as well. As in, "Did you score, Dude?" The only difference is "4th base" is generally used by younger children probably 15 yrs. and under who don't know what vaginal intercourse means and "score" is used by adolescents 13 yrs. and higher who would never call "it" vaginal intercourse.

  • Anyway its a topic that i think deserves an article. I seem to remember seeing the content on wikipedia somewhere else a while back, it may have even been this article. THE KING 06:53, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

"The slang term 'fuck'"[edit]

A quintessential example is the slang term "fuck" for sexual intercourse.

Slang says: "Slang is the non-standard use of words in a language of a particular social group, and sometimes the creation of new words or importation of words from another language. It is a type of neologism."

"Fuck" is in no way a neologism: it's been around at least since the 1400s. So I suggest we either change this page, or Slang. 21:44, 25 December 2005 (UTC)

Agreed, it certainly isn't slang. Obscene, or a vulgarism, but not slang. It was a proper verb at one time. FearFactory 01:22, 8 January 2006 (UTC)

territorial comments[edit]

'Fuck' is equated with American-Asian-Pacific domains, though, and is suggestive of active sexual legerdemain; "getting laid" is a more passive term and euphemism suggestive of sexual consort rather than sexual activity per se. 07:03, 4 January 2006 (UTC)1/3/2006 beadtot

sexual slang in Wikipedia:Bad Jokes and Other Deleted Nonsense[edit]

i have decided to take the old page [1] and move it (with minor revisions) to Wikipedia:Bad Jokes and Other Deleted Nonsense. The artice can be found here [2]

--Joe dude 01:27, 18 January 2006 (UTC)

  • That's weird, that is not the version displayed on the BJAODN page, and the above version has no links to it other than the above external link. (?) Since the BJAODN version has gotten more activity (it has been in the BJAODN special collections section since January), I've redirected the above version to it. As time allows, I'll add the edits from the above to the more complete version. --List Expert 21:06, 21 July 2006 (UTC)

Where'd the list go?[edit]

What? Wikipedia was known for its Sexual slang article! Is the list gone or is it just in list of sexual slang or similar? Yes no doubt this is a better article on the topic, but i wanted to see the list again! I remember we cracked a friend up while he was on the phone to his girlfriend by bringing up the page and highlighting 'vaginal stimulation' or something equally amusing. THE KING 06:47, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

  • Ah. sorry i should have read the above post. turns out its in bjaodn. cheers.
Don't forget about List of sexual slurs.Voice-of-AllTalk 06:50, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

Poontang redirects to this? Is there problem with an article dedicated to Poontang, I believe the origin of that word merits its own article. Happycat is gone, Brian Peppers is locked, it seems the folks running wikipedia like to have too much control over what goes on here. This is a resource for all things, vulgar or not, controversial or not. I think the etymology of Poontang is certainly meritorious of it's own article and fail to see how putting all words of that nature to a "sexual slang" article is very intelligent.

Most universal slur?[edit]

I take issue with the following:

The most universal kind of slur directed against women is that of whore (implying female promiscuity, which carries a strong stigma in patriarchal societies)

First of all, I dispute that "whore" can be substantiated as the MOST UNIVERSAL kind of slur directed against women. Secondly, the definition is incorrect, it implies prostitution, not promiscuity. Lastly, the stigma against sexuality (female or otherwise) does not occur in all societies and occurs in non-patriarchal societies as well. I suggest that this portion of the article be cleaned up a bit... I'll do it myself, but I wanted to make sure no one had any issues before I changed it, as it struck me as potentially a contentious edit. --Dante Alighieri | Talk 21:39, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

No comments, so I've removed the relevant passage as unsourced. I left in a subsequent bit about insults to men, because it seemed to have sources (Aristophanes and the Hittite military oath). --Dante Alighieri | Talk 16:45, 1 November 2006 (UTC)

Business Usage[edit]

Does anyone understand the paragraph headed Business Usage? Do we think it merits such large proportion of this article? Scaramouche 15:37, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

I'm fairly certain this is original research/vandalism (intentional misinformation) so i'm removing it. it is wholly the contribution of one individual with no other edits and looks to have originally been an insult toward a specific person. 02:20, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

Reach Around[edit]

Reach Around redirects here but i still don't know what it means... --AnYoNe! 19:11, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

List of sexual slang[edit]

Doesn't the list of sexual slang in the article go against WP:DIRECTORY? -- Eraserhead1 <talk> 13:58, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

 Done removed. -- Eraserhead1 <talk> 20:47, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

Doesn't look like it, explain how? Violentbob (talk) 08:13, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

It just seems to be an endless list of words that fails WP:DIRECTORY's 1st point. It is also a big vandalism target and is just essentially a less useful version of UrbanDictionary. -- Eraserhead1 <talk> 10:15, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
Well it has now been improved significantly. -- Eraserhead1 <talk> 16:43, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Removed list[edit]

In these two edits, I removed the entirely unsourced lists of slang. It's clear from the article history that these sections are merely targets for vandalism and assorted jackassery. I would not oppose the discussion of notable examples, but this page hasn't a whiff of proper sourcing. Since Wikipedia is not a dictionary, thesaurus, or directory, and isn't for things made up in school one day, I think it's best to leave out this content. — Scientizzle 18:57, 2 April 2010 (UTC)

That leaves inbound redirects pointing here for many terms which quite simply don't have a dictdef or even a mention on this page any more. I fail to see how this is useful. K7L (talk) 20:37, 11 September 2012 (UTC)

Further reading[edit]

I've added Fuck: Word Taboo and Protecting Our First Amendment Liberties to the Further reading section. — Cirt (talk) 07:44, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
