comment A Computer Virus which doesn't damage your PC
Hi Otto. There is quite a big problem with the terminology involved in this question. Just briefly - A computer virus is a specific kind of computer program that a) reproduces it self, and b) modifies it self. However, the term is often used to describe any kind of software which is intended to cause harm to your computer (malware is a more appropriate term here). Which of these usages are you using?

@LittleEva I don't believe so. We don't refer to all cars as 'BMWs'.

Misdirect is a good answer. You should expand your answer to include a definition and example usage though.

comment What do you call the period between having sex?
Technically correct, but it's a technical sounding term, whereas I'm looking for something you could use in a romance novel. (Actually, now that I think about it, you probably could use it in a romance novel).

comment What do you call the period between having sex?
@DJClayworth Good clarification question. I think it's usually pretty ambiguous which of those options it is, because neither partner wants to feel pressure to perform. I'll add an example usage to clarify.

@ermanen I think that's suitable as an answer. While it might not be used literally, it certainly conveys the meaning expressed.
