Eat first, or fuck first?
"C'mon, let's go to bed."

"e.f. or f.f?"

"both."

Alleged to be old Navy slang, meaning, "You wanna get some real food or some tail first?" Occurs in _Time Enough for Love_ by Robert Heinlein. When Dora, "The Adopted Daughter," propositions him, Lazarus asks her "E.F. or F.F.?" She answers, "Both," which is in character for her and also has multiple meanings.

Accept sexual favors in exchange for something

This is most often used in regard to a favor: one party does something requiring time and/or effort for the other, and when asked how much it will be, says, "I'll take it out in trade". Or vice versa: having done something for another person, asking for compensation, and the other says, "You can take it out in trade."

"In trade" sounds like a form of prostitution (exchanging sex for something else), but it usually used humorously and in context of an existing relationship. The meaning is that the person is doing it as part of the relationship rather than expecting to be paid money or goods or whatever.
Girlfriend: Thanks for doing my taxes, honey. How much do I owe you.
Boyfriend (leering): Nothing. I'll take it out in trade.

He means that he expects some kissing and/or loving in return.

Girlfriend: How's that?
Boyfriend (looking at his hair in mirror): Wow! I look great!
GF: So what do I get in return?
BF: You can take it out in trade.

Meaning he'll be extra loving for a while and/or that she gets to choose the position/method next time they make love.

Literally, to kiss (British slang).

Often includes activities that would be included in "making out", e.g., necking.

One wag defined it as "anything you can do with a married woman in her husband's presence." (This assumes a 'monogamous' marriage rather than an "open" one.)
Literal sense: Ginny just grabbed me, dragged me into a broom closet, and snogged the life out of me.

More general: Helen and Joe were sitting on the couch, snogging. She left lipstick all over him from the collar up. I swear his hands were inches from her tits. And Fred (Helen's husband) just sat there, watching the game on TV, completely ignoring it.

Someone who is judgment-proof, having no assets or regular income.

From the saying, "You can't get blood from a turnip." If you sue a "turnip," you will probably win, and get a judgment, but you will have no way to collect on it.
I'd sue that son of a bitch, and I'd win, too. But he's a turnip; what's the point.
