Semen, sperm, jizz, man juice…. and several other euphemisms which we shall kindly gloss over in this post.
I’m utterly fascinated by it. I could watch ILB come time and time again, and I’d still be delighted and turned on to fuck. I’ve discovered that I love the taste of it, I love when he comes on me and I love delicately cleaning it off him with wet wipes (as is our wont) afterwards.
Am I a cumslut? Possibly. What I do know that I am is a bit curious.
Why exactly do we call it “cum”?
And for that matter, why is cum used as a noun and come as a verb?
Forgive me if I sound like a dense twat, but I really don’t understand how we came to call it “cum”. This was a usage note on the first definition that came up on Urban Dictionary and, again, forgive me for finding it highly dubious.
Usage Note: the word is spelled with a ‘u’ to differentiate it from ‘come,’ which has a… cleaner definition.
Is that really what it is? Just a dirtier version of come? Just because we might get the wrong idea when someone tells us that they’re “coming”?
Personally, it’s not my favourite word to use. I get the icks from using the phrase “I’m cumming” in a story, because it just doesn’t read right to me. And it’s often misspelled as “I’m cuming” or (even funnier) “I’m cumin”. Yes, it’s very nice that you now identify as a type of spice, but it’s not exactly relating to your orgasm.
I hereby invite the linguistically inclined followers of my blog to comment with the answer.
