Live Eurocentric Dancers

Sleaze merchants frequently use the word "exotic" as a substitute for "erotic," in the hopes that it will somehow mask their intent to appeal to the prurient interest. But I think we've all caught on to their transparent deceptions by now. For the benefit of the First Amendment superstars who keep America fantasizing, I've helpfully provided a short list of other words that begin with "e" and end with "c" and could be pressed into service as euphemisms for "erotic."

• encephalic
• emetic
• eccentric
• esoteric
• eclectic
• elliptic
• entropic
• epic
• ebonic
• Eric
