Below are a few choice phrases and terms for body parts and acts that I’ve come across while researching my novels. The lists are by no means complete and are intended only as a quick reference. For a comprehensive list of sex slang terms I can’t recommend enough ‘The Big Book of Filth’ by Jonathon Green, and it’s big daddy ‘The Cassell Dictionary of Slang.’
