  • I imagine it's used like that in many other Anglophone communities; an obvious metaphor in these times

    I'm listening to the Duke these days, and the great Ethel Waters:

  • Wikipedia (and Jim Morrison) sez:

    "In southern culture, the phrase "back-door man" refers to a man having an affair with a married woman, using the back door as an exit before the husband comes home."

    See a good, plot-thickening, instance of this in the recently-released movie "Married Life".
