An informative, "hands-on" lecture by the renowned Oxford Professor of English Literature Richard ('Dick') Handler on the word origins of the innumerable euphemisms for self-pleasure around the world. Whether one is chugging in Scotland, slapping the sergeant in Turkey, marinating the salmon in Norway, or flying a kite in Thailand, Professor Handler's scholarly study of the foundations of onanistic slang is guaranteed to have universal appeal because, let's face it, we're all wankers.
