Sexy Birthday Homonyms: steel & steal

Pardon me, for this blog post contains sexually explicit examples or content. If you are under the age of 18 or just uncomfortable with sexually explicit material, you may want to check out one of these sites about grammar and writing instead.

The Sexy Grammarian’s sexy homonyms birthday party winds down this week with my sexiest example sentences yet:

Steel, a noun, is a form of iron, as in:

That clit got hard as steel.

Steel can also be a verb, to render inflexible or determined, as in:

He tried to steel himself against the seduction while she sprinkled kisses along his throat.

And steal, the verb, is to take without permission:

May I steal a kiss?

What is a homonym? Generally speaking, homonyms are any words that sound the same but have different meanings. Read more about homonyms, homophones, and homographs on Wikipedia, and check out this exhaustive homonym list.
