Tagalog to English translations [PRO] Social Sciences - Psychology / questionnaire on sexual activity
Tagalog term or phrase:pakikipagharutan
I'm doing a back translation (Tl>En) of a sexual activity questionnaire (whose original was in English).
"Sekswal na pampasigla" (sexual stimulation) is defined as:
kabilang dito ang mga sitwasyong pakikipagharutan sa kapareha, pagtingin sa mga larawan o pelikulang nakakalibog at iba pa
I've heard this word before but, heck, I don't really use it. Is this flirting?
(btw, the word 'nanakalibog' makes my skin crawl...sounds so lewder than the neutral English 'makes you horny')
