problem — with two distinguishing character-
istics: (1) use of nouns that are euphemisms
for sexually explicit nouns and (2) structure
common in the erotic domain.

Recently, an NSF-funded scientist objected to me using the phrase "beauty contest" to describe NSF's grant process. When you see this sort of thing being funded (and there are many other examples), I'd say the description is becoming literally true, in addition to the figurative sense in which I originally meant it.
