Dirty Sex Dictionary

While beyond my blog's usual scope, this item may prove useful to translators and interpreters working from or into English in any field where these terms are likely to be encountered, including crime novels, erotica and pornography and film subtitling and dubbing.

The Dirty Sex Dictionary was posted on the Creative Lofing Tampa blog by its Sex and Love Editor on 16 September 2012.


The disclaimer reads: This collection of words is far more offensive than informative. The slurs revolve around a handful of categories: promiscuous women, homosexuals, and anyone who acts like a dick, a pussy, or an asshole. Like wise, most of the absurd sex acts are illegal, impossible, or involve an unhealthy amount of urine, feces, or vomit. The cataloging of these words and phrases is in no way an endorsement of them. Also, the list will continue to evolve, so please add your suggestions for additional words, alternate meanings, or corrections in the comments below.
