FEATURED DEFINITION
Petite Mort

This French slang term for orgasm literally means “little death.” It’s kinda morbid, sure, but also kinda hot. It’s like you die a little bit every time you have a sexual release. Hey, we’re all going to die some day anyway, so we might as well have as many orgasms as we can along the way.

By the way, did you know that when a man is hanged, he ejaculates? It’s true. We’re not sure if that’s related at all to the origin of the French expression “Petite Mort”, but we thought it was worth mentioning. One legend says that a mandrake plant will grow wherever a hanged man’s semen touches the ground. Another legend says that when the root is dug up it screams and kills all who hear it, and that’s partly why mandrake root is used so much in witchcraft. It also has narcotic and hallucinogenic properties, and we figure any witches who are into getting high on mandrake root must also be into some pretty kinky sex, too.

Okay, this is getting a little weird, so just bring on some horny French witches, and bring on the crazy mandrake sex potions, and let’s just all have a “Petite Mort” today.

1.  Francine told me that when we make love, she always as a “Petite Mort.” That’s why I started calling my dick “The Angel of Death.”

2.  If having an orgasm is like having a “little death,” then after a weekend with Amy, I must look like a zombie midget.
