Inspired by Alison’s comments during the wordsmithing discussion, I bought a copy of Rodale’s The Synonym Finder today.
Being only 19 years removed from junior high, I looked immediately for the dirty words. Imagine my disappointment. It does have orgasm, though: climax, culmination, peak, acme, zenith, high, or crowning point, supreme moment, consummation, fruition.
The few times I’ve wanted a thesaurus, I’ve made do with the sucky one built into Word, but I figured it’s time to have a grown-up version now.
