English has plenty of terms for sexual organs and acts, the trouble is, we've forgotten some of the best ones.This book will help us reclaim our heritage. Experienced and respected sex expert Jeremy Holford has compiled the most mind-boggling collection of strange words and phrases associated with the delicate art of 'firkytoodle', growl-biting' and 'bagpiping'. Illustrated throughout with eye-opening sketches, the book draws on English, Welsh, Romany and dialects used throughout the English-speaking world over the centuries. There are chapters for ladies and gents, coming together and flying solo, Shakespeare's naughty vocabulary and yankee-doodle dirty; definitions, limericks, personal observations and historical data, making 'Gallop Your Maggot' a fun and factual treasure trove for cunning linguists everywhere.
