The euphemisms of sex that we use nowadays, such as 'screwing,' seem so dry of creativity. They sound so brash! And it's not like we've always thought of the present day euphamisms that way. But we did once learn about the euphamisms that were once used in the past! And you will feel the same way too!
So scroll down and check them out!
