“Clit” isn’t exactly a euphemism, so if you’re not going to use a term like “penis”, don’t use “clit”. Some good euphemisms for “clitoris” are “nub” and “bulb”.

“Shear” means to “cut, tear, or stretch”, or (as an adjective), something related to those actions (“shear stress”).

“Sheer” (as an adjective) means either “pure; utter” (“sheer failure”) or “thin and transparent” (“sheer fabric”).

I think the image caption should be “Sheer Pleasure”, as it could refer to either the fact that the pleasure is pure and total, or the fact that the fabric of the dress is sheer, leading to pleasure.

We love this word, don’t we? Learn how to use it!

The rules depend on which spelling you’re going to use. The traditional spelling is “come”, but some people prefer “cum” (probably to distinguish it from the regular, non-sexual meaning of “come”).

If you’re going to use “come”, then the rules are the same as for the regular meaning. People usually get them right, but a lot of times (for both meanings) people write “have/has/had/should’ve/would’ve/could’ve came”. No, if you have a form of the verb “have” (“have”, “has”, or “had”, including ’ve contractions), the past participle (yes, that’s what it’s called) is come. That’s right. “They come, they have come.” It’s like “run”: “They run, they have/has/had run [not ran].”

If you’re using the “cum” spelling, you have a few more options. For simple past tense, you can use the irregular form “came” or the regular form “cummed”, though I encounter “came” more often.

The past participle, as I’ve encountered it, is almost always “cummed”. Maybe it should be “cum”, but I guess “I have cum” is too awkward.

TL;DR version: It’s either:

  • They come, they came, they have come; or
  • They cum, they came/cummed, they have cummed.


I’ve installed Disqus to my blog, so now you can comment on my posts. (Making a Disqus commenter account is optional. See how to comment without one below.) I originally did this for discussion posts, but this works for any post.

If you want to share stuff I post, then by all means reblog it and (optionally) add remarks. But things get messy after a while with indentations, and that’s why I didn’t want to leave it to reblogging to reply.

How do I use it? It depends on where you’re seeing my post.

If you’re on my blog, just click “# Comments and # Reactions” to head to the Disqus discussion.

If you’re on your dashboard, you have two options:

  • Click the top-right corner of the post (it should turn into a folded page corner).
  • Click “Share”, then “Permalink”.
Either of these will take you to the post on my blog. Scroll down until you reach the discussion.

I don’t want to make an account. Don’t worry, you don’t have to. After you’ve entered your comment, Click “Name” under “Pick a name”, then check “I’d rather post as guest”. No account needed. (You’ll still have to enter a name and an e-mail address, though.)

You can access this through the short URL /t/disqus

Disqus is set up on this blog, too, so the instructions are the same.

Given that “climax” does have a sexual meaning, this is at least somewhat relevant.

The adjective that means “relating to climax” is spelled “climactic”, with three C’s in all. The very similarly spelled word “climatic” (with only two C’s) means “relating to climate”, as in the Climatic Research Unit. So, you might write about “climactic moans,” but not “climatic moans” (unless it really has to do with climate).

(Extra tidbit: When I tried searching “climactic moans” (exact phrase) on Google, it actually said Did you mean: “climatic moans”. That’s right, Google suggested a misspelling because so many people use it.)
