A comment made elsewhere got me thinking about euphemisms for sex. If one's mind goes down those avenues, it's amazing how many phrases end up with different meanings:
- Getting one's tires inflated.
- Doing one's dishes.
- Going for (a beverage of choice).
- Working the board.
- Updating the web site.
- Making (a meal).

Oh, just some people's kids. ;)
Have you ever watched _Whose Line Is It Anyway?_ One of the improv games they do is called "If you know what I mean." In it, the actors are given a theme on which they must do a nudge-nudge wink-wink scene involving euphemisms. For example, if the theme is computers, one actor might say, "She really accesses my hard drive, if you know what I mean." (Only the actors are much funnier.)
