    Insults are part the language and we are all adults here. I would like to keep collection of insults, obscenities, colorful expressions etc.. Please contribute if can.

    A few of top of my head:

    mentula, ae f. = for some reason a feminine word. obscene word for male organ. Catullus wrote a few dedicated poems.

    lumbus, i m. = gentler term than mentula, for genitals.

    culus, i m. = arse.
    Ite mihi in culum! ī in culum!

    cunnus, i m. for some reason a masculine word. obscene word for female organ. Famous latin language advice from Cicero to always say nobiscum instead of cum nobis. Becuase cum nobis sounds like cunno bis.

    More exactly - if I believe what Imber Ranae said in a post some time ago already - it was because it sounded like cunno bis, "twice in the cunt".

    Fascinum (neuter!) can also mean the same as mentula.

    Btw, there's a place for "Latin insults and profanity" in the Latin phrases forum; why didn't you post that there?

    do, dare = to give. reflexive sense / volgar for "to put out"; give sex; so be careful when you use this verb without an object and a female subject. Lots of jokes can follow. This same sense and same verb is used the same way in Russian language.

    One everyone knows I guess: futuere = to fuck

    Irrumator = one who submits to fellation

    Lupa = prostitute

    Cinaedus, i m. = one who practices unnatural lust, found in Catullus 25 as "sodomite/faggot"

    Ineptus, a,um = silly, absurd. Also used in Catullus 25 for "fool/idiot"

    Catullus was not very fond of poor Thallus...

    Debattuo, debattuere: to thump hard, belabour: can mean "to fuck (hard I guess!)"

    Ego sic solebam ipsumam meam debattuere, ut etiam dominus suspicaretur (Petronius).

    Two original insults from Petronius, which I found quite funny, the second one in particular:

    Terrae tuber = truffle
    Caepa cirrata = curly-headed onion (to be addressed to someone having curled hair, I guess)

    Oh, and two more:

    Crucis offla = "cross's peace of meat", gallows' morcel
    Corvorum cibaria = food ration of the ravens

    Oh, I can't help posting the whole passage all this is from. It's really too much of a beautiful insult passage:

    Tu autem, inquit, etiam tu rides, caepa cirrata? O? Saturnalia? rogo, mensis December est? Quando vicesimam numerasti? Quid faciat crucis offla, corvorum cibaria. Curabo iam tibi Iovis iratus sit, et isti qui tibi non imperat. Ita satur pane fiam, ut ego istud conliberto meo dono, alioquin iam tibi depraesentiarum reddidissem. Bene nos habemus, at isti nugae, qui tibi non imperant. Plane qualis dominus, talis et servus. Vix me teneo, nec sum natura caldicerebrius, <sed> cum coepi, matrem meam dupundii non facio. Recte, videbo te in publicum, mus, immo terrae tuber: nec sursum nec deorsum non cresco, nisi dominum tuum in rutae folium non conieci, nec tibi parsero, licet mehercules Iovem Olympium clames. Curabo longe tibi sit comula ista besalis et dominus dupunduarius. Recte, venies sub dentem: aut ego non me novi, aut non deridebis, licet barbam auream habeas. Athana tibi irata sit curabo, et qui te primus deurode fecit.

    XVI. ad Aurelium et Furium
    PEDICABO ego vos et irrumabo,
    Aureli pathice et cinaede Furi,
    qui me ex versiculis meis putastis,
    quod sunt molliculi, parum pudicum.
    nam castum esse decet pium poetam
    ipsum, uersiculos nihil necesse est;
    qui tum denique habent salem ac leporem,
    si sunt molliculi ac parum pudici,
    et quod pruriat incitare possunt,
    non dico pueris, sed his pilosis
    qui duros nequeunt mouere lumbos.
    uos, quod milia multa basiorum
    legistis, male me marem putatis?
    pedicabo ego uos et irrumabo.

    There are a few interesting vocabulary items in there, perquam ad rem pertinentia:

    Pedico, pedicare (or pae -): to commit sodomy with (dictionary definition), to fuck in the ass (real definition).
    Irrumo, irrumare: to practise fellation on.
    Irrumatio: fellation.
    Pathicus, a: submitting to sexual intrcourse (prostitute, catamite, bitch, whore, etc.).
    Prurio, pruriare: to itch, to tingle; to be sexually excited.

    I really like how dictionaries avoid giving English details on such words: "irrumator: one who submits to fellation." "Irrumatio: the action of an irrumator." "Irrumo: to practise irrumatio on".

    I think it's the suffering, not the action.

    one more form this poem

    cinaedus, i, m - sadomite

    Catullus used this in funny way to refer Romulus in a poem about Caesar

    cinaede Romule haec uidebis et feres?

    Hey You Romulus, You Sadamite, will you look at this? will you allows this?
