As we were idly browsing through our well thumbed copy of Brewer’s Dictionary of Phrase & Fable (18th Edition) a little while ago, we stumbled upon an interesting English word with, of course, a strong connection to India – Bombay Fornicator.
Sounds interesting, na?
Bet all you chutias’ hands are already inching their way down. 😉
Brewer’s describes Bombay Fornicator as an Anglo-Indian term meaning a wicker chair with an extended footrest that’s long enough to facilitate sexual intercourse. (p.165, 18th Edition).
Yes, we can easily imagine a wicker chair (indeed, we had one in the distant past but alas without a footrest).
No, we can’t for the life of us imagine a footrest that one can use to bring us to orgasm.
How in the world do you use a wicker chair to get to the ooh, aah, I-am-cumming moment?
We mean, do you have to bend, slide down, rock or what?
Man, we’ve heard of desperate Indians deploying carrots, cologne, hairbrush, beer-bottle, brinjal et al as a route to nirvana. And some of those crazy sick f*ck Tamils in South India have even taken to sexual harassment of buffaloes to satiate their lust.
All that stuff is old news to us.
But wicker chair, hell, this is a new one, even for a polymath like yours truly!
Henceforth, let no one say our Indians lack imagination! 😉
By the way, anyone know of dealers in wicker chairs?
