Where the F*** did “cum” come from?

Cumming is orgasm by either a man or a woman. This helpful bit of info is supplied to you by…the 1970s? At least? Talk about being behind on the news.

All I know is that I can’t read magna-cum-laude without giggling any more.

Slade, actually.

Yeah, well, you’re hot.

“Splashing,” huh? Someone should have told him that it doesn’t really splash that much when you’re practically dropping it off at the doorstep. :smiley:

Summa Cum Laude is worse. I remember a bad movie I saw once where the Asian exchange student claimed he graduated “Some Cum Loudly!”


Yeah, but our Franciscan friend had a point about the pleasure thing. YMMV, of course.

Perhaps. As for me, I was in no position to furnish that insight for another four years.

Ah, thanks for the correction. I didn’t realize that Kevin DuBrow got his inspiration elsewhere.

However, now I’ve got a bit of trivia for you. Did you know that one of their former bass players, Dave Glover, was temporarily engaged to serial killer Rose West? At least according to the Crime Library. And yes, I know this is all terribly off the topic of ‘cum,’ but I thought others might find it interesting none-the-less. :o

I was actually referring to the Hugh Grant movie.

Oh well then, color me an idiot. I’ll just take my goofy factoid and go play in a different thread. :wink:

…one good reason for the spelling may be that it just works better in epithets like cumguzzler, cumbucket, cumrag, &c.

KKK? That isn’t good.

Kumstain? Kumbucket? Kumguzzler? It don’t work, mate.

I am now.

Magna cum laude? Heh. Yo’ mamma cum laude! :stuck_out_tongue: :smiley:

I’m so sorry

It would have been worth the beating to ask him about the comparative benefits of splashing on the face.

I don’t mind “cum” for orgasm, but there’s at least one poster in GQ who persists in writing OPs with titles like “Howcum this thing or that happens?”


Oddly enough, there was an old strip in the funny pages, called There Oughta Be a Law, that made frequent use of the supposedly comical rhetorical convention, “Howcumzit”?

As in, for instance, “Howcumzit? The ice cream factory makes a big deal about how their product is created in the most hygienic of conditions, untouched by human hands, but when it gets to the ice cream parlor, it’s scooped up by hairy-armed gorillas who don’t even wear gloves!”
