oroboros commented on the word backdoor man
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".

bilby commented on the word backdoor man
In Australia I've heard it used a few times in the sense of a man who prefers anal sex. Where that leaves Southern culture (or Australian), or Jim Morrison, is not for me to say.
madmouth commented on the word backdoor man
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:
"ever since time began
a front-door woman's had a backdoor man"
