English has plenty of terms for sexual organs and acts, the trouble is, we've forgotten some of the best ones. This book will help us reclaim our heritage. Experienced and respected sexpert Jeremy Holford has compiled the most mind-boggling collection of strange words and phrases associated with the deliacte artof 'firkytoodle', growl-biting' and 'bagpiping'. Illustrated throughout with eye-opening sketches, the book draws on English. Welsh, Romany and dialects used throughout the English-speaking world over the centuries. There are chapters for ladies and gents, coming together and flying solo, Shakepseare's naughty vocabulary and yankeee-doodle dirty; definitions, limericks, personal observations and historical data, making 'Gallop Your Maggot' a fun and factual treasure trove for cunning linguists everywhere.
During the 1960s and 1970s, when the study of sex really took off, Jeremy Holford was there to chart the changes as a member of the International Planned Parenthood Federation, and he has been noting down the nude, lewd and plain rude for over thirty years. He is the author, with Anne Hooper, of Robson's bestselling 'How Big is Big? (1861056613). He lives in Cambridge. Claudia Schenk is the illustrator of 'How Big is Big.' She lives in London N19.
