Pronunciation: /ˈmeɪdṇˌfɛns/

Sentence: Even though her parents were out of town, her obnoxious nudgwink of a little brother kept making lewd comments every time I even looked at her, and that was enough of a maidenfence to keep me from even thinking about any hanky-panky.

Etymology: from maiden(head) + fence. Kinda looks like it has "defense" in there too.

K/nightly sword play! (fencing) Evokes the romaticism of a past age of chivalry. Very nice verbot!
