Oh, and did you know that English is actually a very formal language? Everybody is so polite to each other, adressing rich and poor, young and old, each and everyone without exception, adressing each other with "you". It's somehow related to the french formal form "vous" (second person singular, formal. Informal it is "tu"). In German you could say that in English, everyone "Ihrzt" everyone else ("Ihr" being the second person plural in German. It used to used as formal form too, but these days it's used for nobility at most, and that would still be quite weird these days. Even nobility is adressed with "Sie" these days. And we don't have much nobility left around here these days, anyway. In fact, most of the nobility in my area died in a plane crash when visiting the relatives of the English nobility.)

Operculum is a good word. It's not used enough in every day conversation. Did you know you can use it as a posh alternative to manhole cover?

Posh, yes. Certainly more high street than 'butt plug'.

Hmm. I can't imagine going in to a sex shop and asking for an operculum.

That said I can't imagine asking for a butt plug either.

There are things I CAN imagine asking for in a sex shop but this is a family thread.

No, it's not really. In fact, it is actually my very own Deplorable Word, which is a bit different from your 0-8-15 Deplorable Word. I can use it as a killing word, by whispering it to the ear of the victim. It sounds very nice, by the way - Do you want to hear it? I'm sure you do. Wait, I'll tell you... *smiles wickedly*

Only if it's a very succient word. You might have to do louder than a whisper though, my hearing sucks.

Depending on the shop, you'd either get wink and a grope, or a really bad knob job.
