Prodominate

Created by: rebelvin

Pronunciation: PROD+dOMINATE

Sentence: We kept at it, each having to be the last one to push, cycling faster and faster in a mad frenzy for prodomination, not really wanting it to end as we responded to each other almost in synch, until finally we both just stood there looking at each other, exhausted, far past the time the elevator reached our floor -- I think I am in love.
