20 Euphemisms For Body Parts In Romance Novels[Pic

When it comes to sexy times in romance novels, clinical and anatomical descriptions can really ruin the mood. So its up to authors to work around those sex ed terms and come up with something a bit more creative. Unfortunately, certain words should never be used when describing a characters bits and pieces. Here at Book Riot, weve ranked some of the worst euphemisms in romance novels. Its a dirty job, but someone has to do it.

  1. Rod - We're starting off easy. Nothing like a little construction equipment to get the blood flowing.
  2. Manhood -Skeptical child
  1. Member - It's always throbbing and it may be a sign of priapism. Get that checked out.
  2. Nub - Can we just file nub into the Least Sexiest Words Ever folder?
  3. Love button - This isn't Family Feud.
  4. Steel wrapped in velvet - This is apparently what every penis feels like ever.
  5. Manroot -mandrakes
  1. Sex Missile - Missile, noun: an object that is forcibly propelled at a target, either by hand or from a mechanical weapon.
  2. Glistening orbs -David Bowie Labyrinth Orbs
  1. Sword/Sheathed to the hilt - In case you didn't know, all vagina's are part of the Arthurian Legend.
  2. Bisected cleft - I feel like this is a math term. Is this a math term?
  3. Quim/Cunny - There's something entirely too cute sounding about these terms that make me highly uncomfortable. Like these should be the names of plushies.
  4. Intimate folds -shar pei puppies
  1. Cods Fish ≠ Balls
  2. Womb - This sounds incredibly painful and I'm reasonably certain that in terms of actual biology, nothing should be penetrating the womb.
  3. Rosebud -Creepy Business Community Dean Pelton
  1. Aching core - The only cores I want to read about are the molten chocolate kind.
  2. Love Canal - Boats pass through canals. Swan boats. Or even regular-sized boats carrying cargo.
  3. Weeping anything - Because nothing sets the mood like thinking my sex organs are really upset.
And drum roll, please.
  1. Honey Pot - Honey makes me think of bees and bears, neither of which I want near my ladyparts.
Have I missed any? Tell us about the most ridiculous euphemism you've read in the comments!

I tend to skip all the sex scenes in books. I like porn. I like stories. I rarely if ever like attempts to mix the two.

But I might read scenes with these euphemisms just to laugh at them, as long as the book was rubbish and therefore not ruined by it.
