English term or phrase: lets have sex
i need it r work

Russian translation:Davay zaymyomsia lubovyu ( давай займёмся любовью)
Explanation:
Russian people very often use the word "love" instead of sex, just becouse it sounds more polite. Even though the word "love" does not literally mean sex, people in Russia use it in that context.

Also the word "sex" has been commonly used in Russia for years, even though it is a foreign word.

I am native Russian speaker.
I hope this helps.

Niet, nilzia


Explanation:
In Russia people don't have sex. They "guliat" (go out together for a walk, have a date).
Polite translation: "poschli guliat".
There are other rude terms, not to be displayed in Proz. If you insist on colloquial terms - (for literary, fiction book reasons) send me a private e-mail.
