Question of the Week: We all know that in romance, authors each have their own unique phrases when referring to those special man and lady bits or the act of those bits getting together. ;) What is one or a few of the silliest phrases you have read?

In real life, most of us don't refer to a dude's penis as a throbbing rod of steel while we're getting it on but in books authors have to get a bit creative. This usually isn't a problem for me but sometimes an author uses a word or phrase that makes you either stop and go 'huh?' or just bust out laughing. Here are some that made me do just that...

Man bits:
  • Iron-hard tumescence - A what? I need to get my thesaurus out for this one...oh, okay 'fullness'
  • Love's sweet arrow - lmao
Lady bits:
  • Door of her femininity - omg
  • Most treasured pearl of passion - ha!
The 'Act':
  • Possess the lily - I'm doing a Louis Griffin "Whaaa?" for that one
  • Probed her - That just isn't sexy

What about you? Have you ever run across a smexy scene in a book that made stop and say' What?' 
Now it's your turn, join the follow by linking up below!
