(aka "Flying Gamahooch") - Starting off with doggystyle-anal sex (a tied up broad and a pirate costume including eyepatch is suggested to complete the effect) slowly remove your penis from the broad's ass and grab the biggest ladder you can see. Make sure the broad's ass is facing you and sticking very high in the air. Mount the ladder as quickly as you can so as not to lose your erection and leap to the chandelier, swing downward (whilst screaming "arrrh she matey") and pray to god in heaven you do not break your penis. - Mike M & Luke F, Philadelphia
Swashbuckler is a term that came about in the 16th century and was applied to rough, noisy and boastful swordsmen. It came about due to the popularity of the fighting style using a side-sword with a buckler in the off-hand, which was filled with much "swashing and making a noise on the buckler" (see dictionary.com reference, below) __toc__ Today the term "swashbuckler" is used to denote a particular type of character and is usually applied to fictional characters. (Usually, these characters rarely actually use the buckler, instead only using a sword.)
Swashbuckler is a romantic adventure film produced in the U.S. by Universal Studios and released in 1976. It's a story that takes place in Jamaica around the late 1600s or early 1700s about a band of buccaneer pirates, led by Captain â€œRedâ€ Ned Lynch, pitted against a greedy overlord, evil Lord Durant. Durant has ruthlessly imprisoned his Lord High Justice and mercilessly evicted his wife and daughter Jane Burnet who eventually attempts a rescue with Lynchâ€™s help.
