drumma commented on the list sexy-minus-y
Of course it's fun. What I meant was this is a list of words that, when studied closely, don't really connate the passionate, erotic aspect of sex that is perpetuated in films, photography, literature, music, etc. However, one may conclude that perhaps it's the sheer oddity of the act of sex that makes it beautiful.

drumma commented on the word petticoat
A writer once told me: "don't venture outside your area of expertise."
If you've never spent a day in a petticoat, don't write a sentence about petticoats unless it discusses your lack of knowledge of said undergarment.
eg: don't write a novel set in the Victorian era unless you've studied the Victorian era or are writing a novel about knowing nothing about the Victorian era
