The five thriller novels by American author Patricia (STRANGERS ON A TRAIN, THE PRICE OF SALT) Highsmith (d. 1995) that have the amoral but sympathetic Thomas Ripley as their hero.

These books are: The Talented Mr. Ripley (1955), Ripley Under Ground (1970), Ripley's Game (1974), The Boy Who Followed Ripley (1980) and Ripley Under Water (1991). It is alleged that Ms. Highsmith coined the self-effacing and jocular term "Ripliad" herself, although when an anthology of the first three of these novels was published by Everyman's Library in 1998, critics used the term "Ripliad" to refer to those specific three. (In 2011 the Folio Society of London brought out its own three-volume boxed set of exactly the same novels.) However, the first boxed set of all five Ripley novels did not appear until 2008 (THE COMPLETE RIPLEY NOVELS); to them, the term "Ripliad" also applies.
"The one box set I would love Folio Society to put out would be the complete Ripliad by Patricia Highsmith. Probably my favourite author of all time..."

A Latin and Italian word regarding male oral sex that is frequently confused with the more commonly used "fellare." "Irrumare" (person who does the act is an 'irrumator') refers to the person who offers the penis for sucking. The person who gives head (takes the penis into his or her mouth) is the 'fellator,' from "fellare". Modern terms like "sucker/suckee" or "bottom/top" don't cover the distinction so well.
-- That cocksucker? He can fellare me!

-- Oh you mean you want to irrumare him!

Also "dogcock" or "dogscock." British journalese for an exclamation mark (!) due to the visual similarity. Considered vulgar but widely used within the industry.

Mentioned in Lynn Truss's book EATS, SHOOTS AND LEAVES.
"Can't we get along with just one dog's cock on that banner? Surely three is going over the top."

"Jagoff" (sometimes "jag-off") seems to have originated in Pittsburgh but is also recognized in the Midwest as slang for an inept, feckless, contemptible, or generally worthless person, a loser, a "schlemiel."

The term is almost certainly derived from the verb "jack off" (through noun "jack-off") as in "masturbate," but somewhat like the British use of "wanker," it is usually not a direct comment on self-pleasuring, but more of a general term of contempt or deliberate abuse. Like "wanker," "jagoff" is somewhat vulgar and not to be used lightly, and avoided in cultivated speech, but is recognized by all in the regions in which it has currency.

.
The book KILLER CLOWN relates that John Wayne Gacy became especially flustered or angry when called a "jagoff." So the police deliberately used that term to throw him off-balance during interrogation.

Male-on-male anal sex in which the top stands up and the bottom bends over, usually grabbing his ankles, his butt to top's junk. This is considered the fastest and easiest way for top to pentrate and fuck to orgasm, if not the most esthetically pleasing. Out of prison, the bottom can be female or male.

Indeed, "prison sex" is often the preferred method of sex in prison, where quickies are key. It is not to be confused with conjugal visits, which imply no particular sexual positioning between partners.

.
"Whaddaya mean, Joe's too tall for you? Have him bend over and grab his ankles -- you've never heard of prison sex?"

"I like to look my fuckee in the face, Dude. Prison sex to me is all about efficiency and nothing about romance."

"Believe me, if you both want it bad enough, you'll find a way . . . maybe several different ways."

Pronounced roughly "Ah-YEEEEEE!," this highly useful word not only lets you scream in Italian, but in most other major Romance languages and, because of its onomatopoetic (sound-into-printed word) quality, is pretty well understood around the world.
