Word of the Day – Bombay Fornicator

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 IndiaBombay 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?

    Desperately looking on eBay & after exhausting that we’ll take a shot on Half.com.

    Nothing like a 50%-Off Deal for a wicker chair with a foot-rest long enough to ….you know the rest.

    In the outside chance we find a Buy One-Get One offer, the second one’s all yours. As they say on TV, you pay $5.99 just for S&H.

      ha.. just looked up the picture.. my gramps used to have it..(Not sure if he knew the “official” name.. he probably would have.. he was very well read, unlike me.. used to finish the newspaper from start to finish). He lived past 100. Now I know the secret. After his demise, there was soththu thagararu(I swear that I wasn’t involved).. not sure what happened to the poor chair.

      BTW, there is a position called “Arm Chair”.. I am not posting the link because this is such a family friendly site. This chair was probably designed with that in mind.

    the last one about buffalo’s is similarly bizarre as to what my fellow classmates in rural ohio (dont worry i wasnt one of them) who preferred their cousins! i swear to god that i was the only one in my high school who wasnt somehow related to someone else and who wasnt getting down to business with aunty paige and uncle jim

    You write: the last one about buffalo’s is similarly bizarre as to what my fellow classmates in rural ohio (dont worry i wasnt one of them) who preferred their cousins

    What’s wrong with incest. We don’t consider it bizarre in the least. Any days beats mating with buffaloes like some Tamils like to do.

    History (particularly Egyptian; btw, Cleopatra was married to her brother) is replete with examples of incestuous relationships.

    Non-incestuous relationships are a very modern phenomenon if you take a longer view of human history.

    The problem with incest arises with children born of such relationships supposedly being more vulnerable to some diseases than children from non-consanguineous relationships.

      having never been to India in this lifetime,i cant say what goes on, least of all in south India, i do know however that [Deleted] was born out of incest (no offense to his followers) and that it is not uncommon in Hindustan

      You MUST provide credible links to support your claims.

        ok……….. [Link Deleted because it’s not credible]

        thos was all i could find,it may be biased being written by an ex-disciple

        SearchIndia.com Responds:

        In India, marrying cousins or even nieces is not uncommon and not considered incest.

        If the people concerned and their families are happy, why should we get worried if it’s incest or wateva?

        Reminds us of the anti-abortion nut-cases who want to impose their weird notions on the rest of the sane world.

          speaking of which,i remember in my sophmore biology class,we had a girl that used to hand out anti abortion pamphlets,including pictures(they were NOT a pretty sight) i took one just to be nice but then threw it away,personally im against it but if its to save the life of the mother then thats different.i have a neighbor that has signs that say anti abortion phrases and right next to the signs is a statue of mary,just wish people would look at this issue from a secular point of view
