They’re normally used to either dress sex UP or dress it DOWN.. To make sex cooler than it really was or to play it off like the physical act didn’t happen at all by describing some peripheral event that may or may not have actually accompanied the sexâ€¦ such as SLEEPING. :/
Here are 10 euphemisms for sex that come to mind, in no particular order:
Getting Laid makes sense, because for the most part, you’re going to be laying down while you’re doing itâ€¦ unless you have her leg up on a counter or she’s on her hands and knees, doggie-styleâ€¦
Sleeping Together makes NO SENSE, because most of the time that one or more of you are asleep, there’s no sex going onâ€¦ MOST of the time! 😉
Getting Some makes sense, because you’re not specifying “Getting Some WHAT?”.
Having An Affair makes no sense at all, unless one of the parties involved is married. If both people are single, there’s no “affair” to be had. It’s just sex.
Getting On makes sense, because unless you’re doing “Woman On Top”, you’re getting on top of her to some degree.
Knocking Boots makes sense as a slang escalationâ€¦ The way slang works is that if someone does one thing, you want to represent that you did it bigger, better or harder than they did. Therefore, the term “Knock Your Socks Off”, meaning do something fantastic, had to be one-upped! 😀 So while it might be tough to knock someone’s socks off, it would be even TOUGHER to knock their BOOTS off and therefore a greater accomplishment.
Getting Paid as a slang term doesn’t really make sense. I would have to guess that the origin is rhyming “paid” with “laid”? \o/ (<= That's the little "I don't know" man with his hands up in the air, shruggingâ€¦ in case you were wondering :D) It makes sense if you're a gigolo or a hooker, so maybe the term originated from those segments of society. Getting Lucky makes sense only if you felt like you didn’t deserve to have sex with her in the first place. Did you get lucky when you got your last paycheck from work? No. You worked for it, earned it and received it. If you feel like it’s LUCK when a chick feels like hooking up with you, it’s time to reevaluate your skillz and step your game up. Srsly.
Tagging Up makes sense from the standpoint of Graffiti culture and Locker Room Talk culture. It’s a combination of the two because Tagging is writing on walls, like, putting your name on something, representing that you were there. Obviously, you don’t actually write on the chick, unless she’s sweating the dilznick so much that she gets your name tattooed on her bodyâ€¦ But the point is that you get to tell the fellaz that you hit it, meaning that you’ve now added your name to the wall of guys that already hit it. It’s like a club.. “You got that? Yeah.. I got that last weekend. Did she do that trick where sheâ€¦”
Making Love makes no sense at all. It’s a good term to use if you want to get a prudish chick to give it up, but other than that, it really has nothing to do with the actual act you’re about to do to / with her. The only possible sense it makes is that she doesn’t love you BEFORE you hit it, but she falls in love with you right after she gets hers.
