Topic: Prison rape slang

Eoin Riedy:

Yes, it is quite possible. The threatening man is an afro-american and the wiki says that "Woke is a political term of black origin...".
Thank you for the many help, although I am still not know why the rapist wants to achieve orgasm by masturbation. Maybe it's some personal preference.

Respected teachers and helpers,

I am currently reading "The Pig" by Edward Lee. There is a scene in it when a new inmate greets his cellmate. His cellmate not returns the greating, instead he says this: "Ah'll beat myseff off wiff my hand affa I woke yo' ass." While I get the gist of the sentence (he promises rape) I don't understand the whole meaning. "I will beat myself off with my hand..." - I think this is the first part, but what is the second part exactly? I would appreciate it if you could write down the sentence in clear words.

"The sun sets, the birds become silent and the world is dark - it was then he realised he was lost."

it was then he realised he was lost. - It was this moment when he realised he was lost. He only realizes it once, not every day or hour.

A repeated action occurs more than once, for example every day, every week.

When something occurs only once it is not a repeated action.

True, the sun sets every day, but your sentence describe the moment when someone realizes that he is lost. It is not about the sun.

From the online Oxford dictionary:

"A woman whose qualities are appreciated by women, a woman who is popular with other women."

Respected teachers and helpers,

I am currently reading "Tormented" by Lee Mountford.
There is an old man with a knee that loudly pops when he stands up. His younger college mentions that it must be painful.
The old man: "If one lives long enough, it is unavoidable, I'm afraid. Something you have to look forward to."

Later a man speaks about a bad thing that will likely happen to another one:
"Guess this is what you've got to look forward to, lad"

My problem is that I don't know exactly what have to and have got to mean in these sentences. Are they meaning "must needs" or is this a possessive case (and have and to are two separate things)?

Instead of punching (as the link says) it's more like wrestling and judo ground fighting.
