sexual intercourse or sex in general. This coy term became popular in the late 1970s and 1980s, probably due to its use in the media in place of more offen-sive synonyms. (Nookie also occurs, albeit rarely, in American usage.) The etymology of the word is uncertain. It may be a form of the archaic British dialect verb 'nug' (which has survived in Ameri-can speech in the form noogie: kiss or hug), or it may alternatively be an altera-tion of an older euphemism for the female pudenda as a 'shady nook'. It has been defined recently as '70's style slang for sex, now making a bit of a come-back'.
