    Nail

    Hi,

    Quoted from <Desperate Housewife>:


    You nailed my wife.
    (Someone told Poter this, because Poter had sex with his wife.)


    I am just wondering if the "nail" here makes no sense at all? Because I looked it up in many of my dictionaries and found nothing several times.

    May I have your help?

    Urban Dictionary: nail
    I don't think you have access to this dictionary from China, so I'll break one of my own rules and quote from it:

    "verb: to penetrate with penis
    1. I nailed her 3 times last night.
    verb: to screw financially
    2. She really nailed me in the divorce settlement, I lost almost everything of value to her lawyer."


    You're not going to find transient slang terms in mainstream dictionaries.

    Re: Nail

    In AmE, "nail" can be used as a slang term for the sex act. It's not necessarily crude, but it's not as polite as saying "making love", either.
