Today's word: FORNICATE!*
v. to commit fornication; fornication n. sexual intercourse between unmarried persons. c.1300, from O.Fr. fornication, from L.L. fornicationem (nom. fornicatio), from fornicari "fornicate," from L. fornix (gen. fornicis) "brothel," originally "arch, vaulted chamber" (Roman prostitutes commonly solicited from under the arches of certain buildings), from fornus "oven of arched or domed shape." Strictly, "voluntary sex between an unmarried man and an unmarried woman;" (good grief, it's so hetero-centric) extended in the Bible to adultery.
