... It was the first word that came to mind when I thought, "Tomorrow I have to write about N... what will that be?"
Necrophilia is not exactly a word you would want to speak out loud in a public place, for fear that people would judge you - rightfully - or think you were into that.
Not that I want to have sex with a dead body or anything. It's just a fun word, isn't it? It hits a great combination of sounds. After beginning with the subtle "n" you've got that hard C "kuh" but even better, it's a "kruh", and the soft "ff" and "uhl" of the ph and l flows so nicely in "philia". Plus, "philia" is from the Greek philos, which means love! It's a lovely word!💗
I mean, except for the whole "violating the sanctity of the deceased" thing. If you ignore the meaning, it's a cool word.
Hard to ignore the meaning, though.
Now, sex with the dead... I've watched enough TV cop shows to have seen plots where someone has sex with a corpse simply because their partner died "in flagrante". You can't judge someone for that! Somebody does in a moment of high pleasure and you're angry at the person who gave them pleasure? meh. Grey area...
However, if your kink is breaking into morgues and defiling the beloved (by someone) people waiting there, you deserve stiff punishment worse than I can dream up. 'Cuz EW! Gross!
Although, truth be told, I seem to remember when I was younger, learning new, big words, I used to get Narcolepsy / Narcoleptic and Necrophilia / Necrophiliac confused. If I go with my youthful understanding, necrophilia is falling asleep randomly. So much a better meaning for that word. Narcolepsy sounds dangerous. I think it's the "CR" vs. "RC" flip. What do you think?
Maybe this should be a post about falling asleep at random, unexpected, and inconvenient times!
...Or maybe it is. Maybe I fell asleep and wrote this...
