Ah, sex. Over the centuries, few things have wielded such power over mankind as the promise of a great romp between the sheets. And because it’s on our minds practically all the time, it’s no wonder it’s been a topic of conversation for almost every person ever. Perhaps that’s why it’s also gotten so many nicknames and aliases throughout history. (Or maybe it’s just because “horizontal tango” sounds a lot more romantic and exciting than “performing coitus” when you’re telling your friend’s about last night’s escapades.) Regardless, here we’ve created a list to pay homage to all the best euphemisms for sex that have spun their way into popular culture.

We kicked things off with a few of our own fun phrases and other names for sex, but we also invite you to add your own favorites as well. A warning to readers in advance: this list has as a lot of potential to get graphic, so it’s not for children or the weak of heart.

That said, if you’re ready to celebrate some of the best euphemisms for the everyone’s favorite activity, you’re in the right place! Here you’ll find some of your favorite, classic sex nicknames and maybe even learn a few new ones. We’ve got everything from classy cover words for doing the nasty to blatant, not so subtle slang for sex. We’ve also included sex terms for specific sexual encounters such as the “quickie” and the “wam bam thank you ma’am.” Enjoy!
