Dirty talk is a dysphemism for a lover's practice of using graphic word imagery to heighten sexual pleasure before and during the sex act. Dirty talk can include sexual humor, vivid erotic descriptions, giving a partner sexual commands and whispering rude words into their ear. It is a common form of foreplay and can involve the negotiation of how the couple will have sex.
When lovers are apart from one another and physical intimacy is impossible, it can be an important aspect of virtual sex, particularly phone sex.
Dirty talk is more sexual in nature than pillow talk and tends to precede rather than follow love making. Sex educators advise talking about sex with a partner beforehand to make sex better and safer.
