Comes from the Greek episteme--meaning knowledge, and the also Greek nautes--meaning sailor. Similar (and inspired by) astronaut. (From the Greek astron--star, and nautes--sailor, (again).

A much better term for a geek or bookworm.

Not to be confused with pistenaut, which means sailor of urine. Comes from... well.

1. noun: Any act of cuddling beyond normal, chill holding hands. This can include full-contact cuddling, kissing, making out, or sex. It is often used to deter nosy friends, (see example 1.) when they want to know more about your relationship than they should.

2. noun: A rare case is actually when a couple is holding hands--and nothing else--but has manage to warp it into something incredibly sexual. Interesting to watch. This form of extreme hand-holding should perhaps be it's own fetish.
