On the Job

In ye olden days, when I was at school, there were all kinds of innocuous-yet-filthy-sounding euphemisms for sex-related activities. People might be a 'good lay' (or an easy one); they would try to get their 'leg over'; they would 'have it off' with somebody. I hardly ever hear or read these phrases since they were superseded by variations on the ubiquitous 'shag'.

In a funny way, I miss them.
