    The S word has Feces. The D word has Penis. The T word has Breasts, and the A word has Butt (from Buttocks). These are examples of "bad" words that the imperialistic, wealthy Normans disapproved of because they were peasant Anglo-Saxon words instead of Norman French.

    Is there a single verb equivalent of the Anglo Saxon "to F"? The closest I can think of is "to have intercourse with" or "to have sex with".

    Ah there we go. Thanks!

    Slightly different though...copulate with X, not just copulate X...

    To "know"?

    I just realized that the other words are nouns.

    Does a man mate a woman or mate with a woman? Or both? and what about girl on girl action...

    Whew...gettin' warm in here...

    ...or man on man...

    OK, it's cooled down again.

    "breasts" and "butt" are not Anglo-Saxon?
