More Information

The noun for "sexual climax" is 'ebraH. There's also a slang term, HutmaH, literally "90." Maltz didn't know how 90 got to be associated with climaxing.

The regular verb is ghuch, but it's not heard as frequently as a couple of slang expressions: meQ (literally, "burn") and HutmaH chav (literally, "achieve 90"). Maltz never heard anyone say 'ebraH chav, mixing the standard word together with the slang.

A slang expression for "fail to climax" is chenHa' meyrI' ("the square malforms" or something like that). Maltz was mystified by this as well.

None of these words or expressions is gender specific.
