    nut in your mouth

    Dear all,



    What is the meaning of the expression "nut in your mouth" in the following context?



    A: We need two almonds and one cashews.


    Man: I see your picture on Internet.


    A: You (or "we" not audible) love nuts. In our mouths.


    The man gave them the nuts


    B: Thank you. Oh, my God, these are hot.


    (To A: I want a nut in your mouth. I want a nut...)


    A: Bye. Thank you.


    B: Who likes nuts in their mouth?


    A: We do, we do.



    Is it a famous idiom or something?

    Thanks a lot

    It doesn't make any sense at all to me.

    Re: nut in your mouth

    Just adding that the entire conversation makes no sense to me at all, either.

    I don't detect anything sexual. Although "nut" can be a euphemism for testicle, it doesn't seem to be so in this random series of utterances.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: nut in your mouth

    Warning! Sexual content follows!

    It sounds like an example of Internet (or telephone) sex chat. The discussion about "nuts" is a double entendre. The girls are talking about actual legumes, since they're eating cashews and almonds, but they know that they're teasing the man, acting innocent yet encouraging him ("Oooh, these are hot!"). The man might be talking about his testicles when he says "I want a nut in your mouth," or he could be referring to a crude slang term for ejaculation and saying "I wanna nut in your mouth."

    Thank you, Ouisch. What a lot we have to learn about our own language! It's no wonder students despair at times.

    You clearly move in different circles to bhaisahab and me.

    Now it made sense. I could NEVER knew that on my own.

    Can't really thank you enough.

    Also, thanks for the links. I'll refer to it whenever necessary.

    YES! "despair" a very suitable description but we have to admit that forums like this escellent one make things way easier.
