Choke The Chicken

Euphemisms are words and phrases we use when we want to avoid saying something naughty or unpleasant to think about. For example, “choking the chicken,” which on the surface sounds like a beautiful, natural act, is actually a description of something that is pretty disgusting. But even though we use a euphemism so we don’t have to say a naughty word, everyone understands that the euphemism means exactly what the word it replaced meant, and it quickly takes on all the same connotations, becoming just as offensive itself.

Genitals are perhaps the only thing in the world that everyone loves and most people don’t mind sharing with others.
