* Other languages, German: A "Dirne" was simply a girl (and still is in dialect: cf. "Deern" and "Dirndl"). Nowadays it means a prostitute, but the word is so obsolete that it is only used semi-poetically even for that (akin to the English "harlot" and "strumpet"). "Wichsen" meant to apply shoe cream, but transfer by analogy [[ADateWithRosiePalms shifted the standard meaning completely.]] "Geil" went ping-pong. A biological term first ("wild") the meaning turned first into "horny" and by overuse it now rather means "cool, groovy" or something like that.

** "Ejaculate" is even more problematic, as it used to just mean "suddenly exclaim," but now almost exclusively gets interpreted as… well, you know. The Literature page has many examples including, despite its relatively recent publishing, ''Literature/HarryPotter''.

Added DiffLines:

* "Spunk" used to be synonymous with pluck, moxie, fight, and spirit - as in YouGotSpunk. Nowadays, the term more often refers to semen and the ejaculation thereof. The aforementioned trope has mostly dropped the term as a result in favour of other synonyms.

** This may have been deliberately invoked in ''Manga/HunterXHunter'', which actually has a character named Baise. Her power is to invoke intense sexual desire of any type she likes in any man by kissing him.

** "Cock" originally referred to a rooster. It still does in some parts of Asia, where the word "rooster" is rare or unheard of, leading to confusion on both sides.

Even very slight changes in usage can produce this effect; until recently, a man might speak of his attraction to a "young girl" and mean a twentysomething. Nowadays she'd be young, or a girl, [[PaedoHunt but not both]]. And sometimes the expression ''still'' has an innocent meaning that is at least as valid as the naughty one, but now [[FreudWasRight there are just too many people with their minds in the gutter]].
