Non-idiomatic sum of parts: anal + fisting. Equinox 02:46, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

Well yes, but I've never really understood why anal sex and vaginal sex are idiomatic either. Mglovesfun (talk) 11:39, 19 December 2009 (UTC)
Delete Anal sex and vaginal sex are idiomatic because traditionally (in the English speaking world) all sex was "considered" vaginal in "right thinking" circles but in the 20th century anal intercourse entered the common lexicon, after which a clarification for vaginal sex was needed. Anal fisting is merely a sum-of-parts term; generally people refer to "fisting" and context makes it clear which one is meant. --达伟 15:14, 19 December 2009 (UTC)
Delete, indeed. Mglovesfun (talk) 15:23, 19 December 2009 (UTC)
Delete How exactly would we verify the former idiomaticity of anal sex and vaginal sex? We seem to have enormous trouble excluding even non-grammatical SoP collocations. If we accept nice, plausible stories from the social sciences, in addition to the Pawley laundry list of idiomaticity criteria, there will be no collocations excluded. Both users and redistributors of our information will eventually not find it possible to separate the wheat from the chaff. DCDuring TALK 17:07, 19 December 2009 (UTC)
Or put it this way: what's so bad about increasing our number of possible entries? By the way, I vote to delete this one as it is SoP IMO. Tooironic 00:01, 20 December 2009 (UTC)
