intravaginal ejaculation latency time[edit]

Sum of its parts, look at the medical definition of latency. Mglovesfun (talk) 13:13, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

  • Keep set term. Ƿidsiþ 14:34, 5 November 2010 (UTC)
Easy to say. Evidence? DCDuring TALK 15:37, 5 November 2010 (UTC)
Well, the fact that it gets initialised to IELT seems a good indicator. Ƿidsiþ 15:43, 5 November 2010 (UTC)
Well, we wouldn't want the full form of every initialism, would we? How about be back in a bit and be back later versus bbiab and bbl. Mglovesfun (talk) 16:52, 5 November 2010 (UTC)
For me there is a clear difference. IELT abbreviates a noun phrase referring to a single specific medical concept. Your examples abbreviate conversational phrases and therefore don't refer to any specific thing at all. Ƿidsiþ 17:44, 5 November 2010 (UTC)
Weak keep per Ƿidsiþ. This exact phrase gets a hundred b.g.c. hits. (And a few hundred Scholar hits, though I'm not sure if that's meaningful.) Pace Mglovesfun, I don't think that PIV insertion is instantly recognizable as the stimulus to which intravaginal ejaculation is the response. That said, there are also plenty of instances of just "ejaculation latency time", or even just "ejaculation latency". When someone uses this phrase expecting their audience to understand it, is it because they expect their audience to be familiar with this exact phrase, or is it because their audience to have relevant extralinguistic knowledge that makes this phrase intelligible? —RuakhTALK 22:56, 5 November 2010 (UTC)
Been meaning to say weak delete, we do have the meaning of all four words, but it's not that obvious from the sum of its parts. Mglovesfun (talk) 21:43, 6 November 2010 (UTC)
Male ejaculation or female ejaculation? Keep. DAVilla 15:43, 8 November 2010 (UTC)
Is that a rhetorical question? As I was wondering about the same thing. It doesn't say, and it could indeed be either. Mglovesfun (talk) 15:48, 8 November 2010 (UTC)
Actually it couldn't, it only refers to male ejaculation. Ƿidsiþ 09:40, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

Kept for no consensus. Mglovesfun (talk) 13:39, 1 January 2011 (UTC)
