    Light-up effect

    Hello,

    Can anybody tel me what the author means by the light up effect?

    “My favourite is the one where you screw me with your new big d*ck—you have a kind of light-up effect with that—and then you kick me out onto the street naked,” says Suzie. “Actually it’s kind of a turn-on.”

    The Headlife by Margaret Atwood, 2012

    Thanks

    Light up Effect:
    This is saying that she becomes so excited by his new attachment that "she lights up" like a control panel or a Christmas tree.

    I get the idea of this kind of effect:

    Re: Light-up effect

    Agh - seizure warnings please, people.


    I think there's also a reference to the phrase 'light up my life' - see the last entry here.

    In this case, it's his newly enlarged male enhancement (via this story) that's lighting up her life.

    Re: Light-up effect

    Hmm, works for me.


    Maybe some kind of regional settings with copyright?

    It must have to do with geography.

    Re: Light-up effect

    The following one is available at my end, but I don't know whether it is identical to the one posted by MikeNewYork, which is not available at my end either.
