Last night at juggling the phrase of the night was “relax and swing”. Apparently this is the phrase a friend and fellow juggler uses to teach club juggling to people who haven’t done it before. You have to “relax” your arm with the club in hand to your side, and then “swing” it back up toward the other hand, releasing the club into the air. Maybe the phrase should be “relax, swing and release”, that would be even funnier.
Anyway, juggling sexual euphemisms abound, but this one was new to me.
Here are dictionary.com’s related definitions:
a. To be lively, trendy, and exciting.
b. To engage freely in promiscuous sex.
c. To exchange sex partners. Used especially of married couples.
d. To have a sexual orientation toward one or both sexes.
I think the last one is the most funny. Doesn’t everyone have a sexual orientation toward one or both sexes?
Relax and swing, baby. Relax and swing.
