flick the bean' to 'fuel wild nights out'

Uh, yeah, if flick the bean is a euphemism for female masturbation then would that not be a night in?

Why oh WHY would you refer to female genitalia as a MAN in the boat? You don't call your nuts your 'girls'. No wonder you diks can't find it. You're looking for some guy already on your girlfriend!

Now, pardon me. The girls need to work on their tan.

I love how in the headline the Mail has to explain to its readers what it is they are meant to be outraged about.

Not that they care - their morning outrage rush is just as necessary to them as normal people's caffeine.

Your body, your choice. Have you told your sister and mom?  Also, this still doesn't mean you can make your girlfriend happy.
