This is part of our Taboo Series.

My personal go-to when replacing the word “God” is Lemmy. As in the rock god Lemmy Kilmister. Like when someone sneezes I might say, “Lemmy blesses you.” Or “Lemmy help me, my boss is an idiot.”

But saying “Oh my Lemmy,” during sex, particularly if the person’s name doesn’t happen to be Lemmy, could be a bad thing.

Oh my Sagan!

What a way to honor a secular icon! Or not, your call.

Hitch-slap my ass!

Another dubious ode to a famous freethinker.

Sweet baby Odin!

Not bad, although citing the God of war and death might not be my first choice.

That’s it!

Always good to let your partner know when they’re doing something right.
