can mean rough tobacco, or else amateur beach-style dancing in the US. But in the main UK sense, as noun or verb, is an alternative to "fuck" ... but with a slight, important difference of effect. To some ears, "fuck" (like "bang") can sound like an aggressive act, and/or violent conquest, whereas "shag" (a softer sound) sounds more like an enjoyable fun activity. "Shag" is still often the preferred term among women who are very keen on "shagging", very much enjoy shagging men (and/or women) and getting shagged themselves. But don't so much want to get "fucked" (though if talking about another woman, especially a rival, it may well be a different story!). (Note also: "fucking" can also suggest "meddling" or "cheating", "fucked" is also associated with "broken" or "finished", "had it" - "shagged" is used simply to mean "very tired" .... one more reason for the preference by some people for "shag" over "fuck"!)
at a party: "Don't know about you ge-ww, but I need a good stiff shag right away".
Sharon: Yeah, so do I, but steer clear of that Darren, Trace, he just fucks ge-wws an' leaves 'em on their arses!
Tracy (eyes lighting up): Oh yeah? Which one's him then, Shazz?
Sharon (laughs out loud): Come on ge-ww, surely even YOU can do better than DARREN, ya randy
deliberately short-term sexual relationship between two people. Longer than a one-night stand
, not as serious-sounding as "affair", more frankly physical than the discreet or twee "dalliance", the word has the associations of a much-needed sexual relief from stress, worry or hangups. No deep personal involvement required, just the sex and a bit of attention.
Office gossip: Oh, by the way, I heard about your secretary's latest fling!
Minor boss: Whaurrgh (choking on his croissant) - How did you find out?
Office gossip: ... With one of the young trainees. Hey, just a minute (grinning with delight) ....
Minor boss: What? Look, I didn't say anything! Err ... which trainee? (under his breath: the double-dealing BITCH!)
1. a young, usually slim and slightly-built female, considered sexually desirable;
2. if short for nympho
: a woman who craves as much good sex as she can get, but for obvious social reasons at least partly on her own terms
A: Hey, who's that nymph you've been seeing?
B: What, do you know something I don't? I thought Lucy had had only had one or two relationships ....
A: No, you idiot, I just mean she's errm, very good-looking - and a bit young for you, maybe, you old tosser!
someone between the ages of thirTEEN and nineTEEN (d'ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!)
"Twelve-year-olds are far too young for the teen scene, and don't trust anyone over 20"
cheeky, fresh or brash (saucy is also heard as "sassy"), often also with strong overtones of sex. (No doubt an obvious link of sauce
with sexual activity plays a part in this ....)
1. That new guy in your office was very saucy to me this morning ...
2. The "Carry On" films are classics of saucy English humour
position. A variation of missionary
: the man rises slightly more above the woman, and "floats freely" into her, and either he holds her calves (or feet) or she holds her knees folded back against her body and wide apart, to give him the maximum possible entry. Advantages: Man can ride high, right up to the womb; he can probe her very widely; extremely submissive female position and free dominant male role can excite both. Disadvantages: Can be strenuous: for extended sessions only lithe, fit bodies need apply!; also, not the best position for friction against ticklish ridges and main G-spots at front of the ridden cunt
Tracy loves butterfly, but only with manly men - and not on a full stomach!
Sexual activity with another person intended for one night only. (Derives from showbiz, a "one-off show". But also of course from the suggestion of a one-off erection, though the term is used by women as well as men as a candid description of "getting your rocks off" when a bit of no-strings fucking etc. was desired.
“I've never had a one-night stand because I've always been afraid that in the cold light of day, she'll wake up and think; "Oh my God! What the hell am I doing in bed with a stupid cunt like this?!”
