    "Put your furniture in the centre of the room " means adjusting your male equipment into a central position.

    This thread is essential for newcomers and the elderly since I am both. No confirmation need of this as I am posting this at the end of page 13 rather than the end of the the thread. I could not seem to delete this and put it in the right place. Story of my life.

    I like "the domestic authorities"

    Picked it up in a model engineering book -lathes and so on - suggesting a heavy lathe crashing through floorboards of the spare bedroom "may not be popular with the domesitc authorities". Almost seemed like a job title akin to "works manager" or similar.

    Pulling your Male Genitals up into a central location in your shorts (balls'n'all) is common practice on road bikes, so your male equipment doesn't get painfully rubbed on the seat during a long ride.

    Most of these are used on every site everywhere but I'm grateful for the more bike specific ones. Thank You for those!

    One of my friends is a firm proponent of the acronym "BOAB" (bird on a bike) but I am undecided on whether this should be accepted due to the slightly disrespectful tone!
