@ThomasF Well, since culturally we can now only say things other than that which is objectively true, and because societally we have no remaining vestige of shame or propriety, “fucking” is more socially acceptable than “making love”.

@PurplePawprints This quiz made me realize I don’t use any euphemisms for having sex. It could just be that my husband can be pretty oblivious sometimes, the result being me having to hold up a piece of paper that says, “Sex?”
Kick the cat out. This requires a bit of explanation, for the first 16 years of marriage, our bed was only for us, no pets, no children, just us. Last year, we had to put one of our cats to sleep. Those cats were brother/sister 15 years old, had never spent a night apart. The remaining sister decided if she can’t sleep with her brother, that we would have to do. So now we share the bed with the cat. Which is awkward. Now when we’re testing the waters, we’ll ask, “Do you want to kick the cat out?” It’s our favorite current euphemism.
Netflix and chill. It wasn’t until after I had a date with a girl from OK Cupid I realized there would be no The End Of The F-ing World, Black Mirror, or Everything Sucks involved in this date (though she did have “sucking” on her mind). Before that I thought it meant actually watching Netflix.
@redjeep0 The video does make the song that much better. Every once and a while I let it play on my computer with the sound off because my wife thinks the video is stupid and our desks at home are right next to each other. Then when she sits down I send a text asking if she wants to do it like the do on the discovery channel and she always says yes. Not the classiest pick up line, but it works.
