In one of the best Simpsons episodes ever, "Lisa's Wedding," (which took place 15 years in the future, i.e. 2010 -- God, we're old) Marge says, "You know, Fox turned into a hardcore sex channel so gradually, I didn't even notice."
1. If your penis is tumescent, it means you have a boner. You may recall Principal Skinner trying to exchange a beach towel that says: "I got wood at Sequoia National Park." Skinner confesses that "I learned too late that it implied tumescence." Another way of saying tumescent is tumid, which is a rough synonym of turgid, which gave us the name Buck Turgidson, the throbbingly masculine name of George C. Scott's Air Force general in Dr. Strangelove.
3. Priapism is boner that won't go away. It's apparently a dangerous medical condition. It comes from the Greek fertility god Priapus, who had a giant, permanent boner. Priapic is another good word; it just means "pertaining to boners."
5. Gokkun is a subgenre of porn in which a group of men jack off into a cup and a lady drinks the semen. Apparently, producers of Gokkun films in different country are in an arms race to see who can have their lady drink the jizz of the most men. The Japanese are winning the Gokkun race, as they have films in which the lady drinks the jizz of 200 men; the United States' best Gokkun clocks in at a paltry 140. By the way, Wikipedia has a pretty good illustration -- safe for work, surprisingly enough.
7. Anorchia means you don't have balls. Orchis is the ancient Greek word for testicle. So the orchid flower basically means testicle, despite looking like a vulva. Apparently the roots look like testicles.
