Alright, I wonder whether a question like the following would be deemed on-topic. I am posting below the question as it would appear on the actual site.
The opening credits for episodes of TV series "Masters of Sex" pictures what is apparently supposed to be sexual innuendo. The imagery in sequence contains (where unsure I added a question mark):
- a sunflower blossoming in time lapse
- a cock (the animal)
- a railway tunnel
- the Washington Memorial
- a cat being pet
- a knife buttering a muffin
- a blouse being opened (?)
- a lady biting into an apple
- a beaver munching on a twig
- a coin being inserted into a slot
- some kind of cream/balm being pushed out of a tube (container) and wiped off with a finger
- a mushroom (fungus) growing
- a torero tricking a bull with a red cloth
- a train driving into a railway tunnel
- a Venus flytrap entrapping a fly
- cream being applied to a spatula (?)
- bread rolls inflating in an oven (?)
- a key inserted into a lock
- a cucumber being washed under running water
- a billiard ball being sunk into a pocket
- pinball machine kicking a ball
- "male" bunny figurine behind "female" bunny figurine "humping" (?)
- a switch labeled "Vibrate" being switched on
- a patch being applied to an arm (?) to fixate some electrode (?)
- a thermometer going beyond safe limits (according to a label)
- a blinking advert with the label "BINGO"
- a wine bottle being uncorked
- a person dropping a gown (?)
- a champagne bottle being popped open and some foam escaping
- some wires being dragged across a belly (?)
- a lie detector or cardiogram or similar
- a balloon containing confetti being popped
- a bed sheet clenched by a female and a male hand respectively
- a geyser going off
- a rocket being launched
- a firework igniting
- a volcano erupting
- two feet caressing each other then toes "clenching"
- a firework (?)
- a neck area
- a blossom opening in time lapse
Some are obvious to me, e.g. the phallic symbols. However, even those and certainly the others probably require knowledge about slang use for certain words (e.g. I think at some point I heard beaver being used for the vagina or that area).
Unfortunately, I presume, it takes some native speaker of English living in a particular culture given the origin of the series (probably US-American?).
Would someone please be so kind as to point out the proverbial/slang sayings attached to the imagery?!
And yeah, I am serious about this question. This is not meant as a practical joke but genuine interest in the proverbial sayings or slang words that are behind the imagery.
I've been to the US and other parts of the world where English is a first language. However, since dictionaries rarely ever list these words (possible exception the Urban Dictionary - which has no reverse search, though) and there is a sometimes eerie sense of political correctness at the office, it's hard to learn these things. I was luckier with Russian (which is neither my native language) in the past (more "informal" encounters than formal ones).
Thanks for your input.
