Er ...

Osculate: kiss

Oscillate: swing from side to side, swing back and forth etc.

Whatever turns you on ...

Yeah I know but I always thought that "oscillate" went better with "titillate". We can discuss the semantics over a drink at the Christmas Party Wink

Me too. The word "Osculate". I will add it to my vocabulary of 76 words.

Not a very romantic sounding word though is it? I can see why it doesn't get a lot of use, but lets try it out:

Long had they waited for this moment, for they never thought they would see each other again after he was captured by the unicorn army. With tears welling in their eyes, they held each other, he searched down into her wanting eyes, and with the emotion that she tried so hard to hold back, she could only gasp... "Osculate me darling..."

With this, he in an instant became confused and frightened. What had happened to her in these years whilst she yearned for him so? Perhaps she had lost all sense. Maybe even her mind.

He knew he had to do what she needed him to, no matter how absurd. With a purposeful step forward he took her shoulders firmly, and swung her from side to side, then swung back and forth, etc.

Her eyes widened. It did nothing for her. She could not hide her disappointment. What had happened to him? The tragic reality dawned on her, and she could do nothing but turn and flee...

Think I first encountered it in Terry Pratchett's "Monstrous Regiment" where kissing a portrait of the Duchess was supposed to be part of the enrolment procedure, and the rejoining sergeant was asked "care to osculate the doxy?". Definitely the most unromantic word for kissing you could ever find, it makes "snog" look classy!

Oh God of Sarcasm, thanks for everything...

It actually originates from the other meaning of the word "kiss"...as in an aircraft touching down and immediately taking off, or a racing car just briefly hitting the apex of a bend....that kind of thing.....a brief brush rather than a full on snog!!

I'm not sure I like where this thread is heading.... Laugh Laugh Laugh
