Purchosexual

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: pur-cho-SEK-shoo-uhl

Sentence: Roxie never had the slightest intention of consummating her marriage to Bob. After all, think of the danger: children are expensive, leaving little for spend-ups on yourself. Initially, naturally, Bob raised objections to the idea, but gradually she made him see the 'wisdom of her ways. What's more realizing that he had plenty of money to indulge himself with, he began splurging with a red hot passion in procuring the most exotic screws. Still, at times, he did feel that he had been toolshedded; though life was certainly not without its ups and downs as a purchosexual.

Etymology: PURCH of purchase & SEXUAL, as in metrosexual, retrosexual, fauxmosexual. Cognate:purchosexuality

Celibaspree

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /SEL-uh-buh-spree/

Sentence: Donald had now been married for six years — the 'honeymoon' period was long over — and his wife no longer looked for excuses to spend time with him; quite the opposite, in fact. Having little else to occupy his attention, he spent most of his spare time in the garage restoring his old Mustang. Once he got into it, he found all sorts of extra parts, tools and accessories he could buy for the car. Donald went on a celibaspree, buying new spoilers, chrome valve covers, and new seats for Rose's birthday... Rose was the name of Donald's Mustang, not his wife, (he'd been so busy with the car, he'd forgotten his wife's birthday this year).

Etymology: Celibacy - abstention from sexual relations (from L. cælibatus "state of being unmarried") + Spree - a period, spell, or bout of indulgence; e.g. a shopping spree (alteration of Fr. esprit "lively")

Dotcompensate

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: dot com pen sate

Sentence: Eddie lived a hermitic existance in a basement bedroom in his parents' house. He had no life other than that lived through his best friend, his computer. He called her Della, because she was a Dell, the romantic fool. Everyday he showered her with things he bought for her on e-bay and amazon and every imagineable shopping website. A fancy mousepad here, a scanner there, software programs to last her a lifetime. In other words, he dotcompensated for the fact that she was the only female who responded to him. Oh sure, sometimes she would freeze up if he had spoken harshly to her or she'd need her hard drive tweaked. To show his affection, he would go straight to a new site and order her something nice to make her happy. Yes, Eddie was one lonely geek, who's mother ever dispared of becoming a granny!

Etymology: dot.com (A company whose business is based around a website) & compensate (adjust or make up for;make up for shortcomings or a feeling of inferiority by exaggerating;the act of furnishing an equivalent thing in the place of another)
