What does Jack Rabbit mean sexually?
The phrase is “to have sexual intercourse”, no article. The ‘innocent’ term ‘ jack rabbit ‘ meaning a sort of hare is not familiar to me – I think it is a US expression. I am of course familiar with the association of rabbits with promiscuity and Playboy ‘bunnies’ and all that sort of thing.
What is the difference between a rabbit and a jackrabbit?
Hares and jackrabbits are leporids belonging to the genus Lepus. Hares are classified in the same family as rabbits. They are similar in size to rabbits and have similar herbivorous diets, but generally have longer ears and live solitarily or in pairs. Conversely, jackrabbits are hares, rather than rabbits.
Why is it called a jack rabbit?
