Syntactic phrase, compound word, portmanteau

May 24, 2018

(Gay sex talk in street language: use your judgment.)

Encountered today in reports of the slang of young gay men, three words for ‘male anus viewed as a sexual organ, male sexcavity, (figurative) vagina of a man’:

munt /mʌnt/; mussy /’mUsi/, bussy /’bUsi/ (bunt /bʌnt/ is not recorded, but has probably been coined on occasion)

These are portmanteaus derived from the compound nouns man / boy + cunt / pussy, as examined in my 7/26/13 posting on expressions for the male anus viewed as a sexual organ.

Three steps in the tightness of connection between the elements participating in an expression:

Fenwick the semi-generic

Just posted on this blog, this Zippy:

Zippy-God as the psychiatrist, a very Zippy-like generic Pinhead as the patient; he’s given the name Fenwick in the third panel. The artist is fond of Fenwick.

Gay butterflies

May 13, 2018

(Only the first image — daddy and boy in sexual medias res — is problematic; but it’s probably over the line for Facebook these days, and it might be for you too, even though it’s penisless. The penises are in an AZBlogX posting “Gay butterflies”, in three mansex collages with word play and butterflies.)

It started with a visual re-run yesterday in “Beat Me Daddy, Eight to the Bar”:

A collage of mine (from my 10/21/16 posting “Another Spanish lesson”, with a Daddy / Boy scene illustrating el papá taking charge of the body of his boy:

For Mothers Day

May 12, 2018

(Talk about mansex in street language, so not for kids or the sexually modest — or, for that matter, Facebook the Prudish.)

From the TitanMen gay porn studio, for Mothers Day this year:

(#1) Cropped ad; the full ad can be viewed on AZBlogX, in the 5/12 posting “Mothers / Muthuhs Day 2018”

That’s Dirk Caber and Daymin Voss in New Rules: two hot muthas, and muthas — a variant of the vulgar slang mothers, a clipping of the vulgar slang motherfuckers, an epithet that can be either deprecatory or (as here) celebratory — is the link to Mothers Day.

So we end up with gay porn for Mothers Day — a holiday I’m now tickled to think of, alternatively, as Motherfuckers Day. Or, possibly, Samuel L. Jackson Day, for the great cinematic motherfucker-wielder.

As a bonus, half the men in the cast of New Rules are not only mothers / muthuhs, but also daddies, in one of the gay senses of daddy:attractive older gay man’. In fact, they’re muscle daddies.

The patio boys: Cuppy, Ti-Boi, and Cairo Callen

May 11, 2018

(Distantly about plants, but mostly about the social and sexual worlds of gay men. Not for everyone.)

The bronze-leaved ti plant I got yesterday (see “Festival Burgundy”) has now been potted up to an appropriate-sized container, to join with two other notable plants, an apricot-peach cymbidium and a purple calla lily (plus a geranium — well, pelargonium — and ivy climbing all over the place):

(#1) In back, Cuppy and Ti-Boi; in front, Cairo Callen

Yeah, they’re all guys, and they’re sexy, and they have names. Hey, it’s my patio.

Stanford Arizona IV

May 1, 2018

Next in the series on yesterday’s visit to the Arizona Garden (cactus and succulents) at Stanford. Another false lead on the trail of the silk floss tree: searching for desert plants with thorns we were taken not to the genus Ceiba (in the mallow family), but to the genus Prosopis (in the legume / pea / bean family). To mesquite, which had existed for me in only two ways: as the background scrub or brush of the Western deserts in cowboy movies, and as wood for smoking meat, seafood, or vegetables.

Both kapok and mesquite are wickedly thorny, but in different ways. See previous postings for the nasty prickles on the trunk and branches of Ceiba species. And now I’ll lead with the needle-like spines of Prosopis:

Books and their covers

Kids these days! Did Pierce never think to look at the Wikipedia entry for the book? I thought that’s what kids do first when assigned a book report.

The shateria

April 27, 2018

By day it looks like this:

(#1) The washateria ( = laundromat) at 37th and Guadalupe in Austin TX

But UT linguistics professor Steve Wechsler reports that at night, thanks to a defect in the lighting, it looks like this:
