Food-Derived Sex Terms That You Should Be Careful About Using


( We can understand the confusion between sex and food. Pleasure, satisfaction, comfort, necessity, over-all yum. Sometimes you need one with the other. We listed the terms that crossed over-food euphemisms that make sex sound a little less scandalous. Or sex terms that make food sound a little more obscene.
