The Oxford Dictionary company has begun a new initiative called “Save the Words” in attempts to get largely forgotten words back into circulation. On Oxford’s site you have to opportunity to adopt words, promising to use them whenever possible and appropriate in your speech and writing. I’ve compiled a few for the erotic writing community and their possible uses.

1. Adimpleate – v., to fill up.
E.g.: His ass was adimpleated by the nine inch butt plug.

2. Venialia – n. minor sins or offenses.
E.g.: She considered her dirty thoughts about the priest to be only venialia.

3. Quaeritate – v. to ask.
E.g.: Jamie quaeritated her girlfriend to meet her in the bedroom.
