Duncan observes that 'differences in communication can lead to misunderstandings and miscues in the bedroom', and in cases of initial consent 'resistance may be misinterpreted as enthusiastic co-operation; protestations of pain or disinclination, a spur to more sophisticated or more ardent love-making; a clear statement to stop, taken as referring to a particular intimacy rather than the entire performance'.

It's an uncommon letter, but if your keyboard has nothing between TAB and W, sooner or later you will miscue.
