Australians are proud to be pioneers in the use of “bonking” to mean having sex in the 1980s. And oh, boy, once we appropriated 'bonk' as a sexual term? We really appropriate “bonk” as a sexual term.

Slang dictionaries give us' bonkability '(sex appeal),' bonkhole '(anus),' bonk-on '(erection) and even' bonkbuster '(for a movie with sex scenes). I guess Game of Thrones is a “bonkbuster”?). As for why this shift from explosions to sex? One theory (which I don't think, is too clear) is that “bonk” is “knob” the other way around. Simply highlight the game you want to buy (Ecco the Dolphin, Excite Bike and Bonk's Adventure are among the best) and select Buy.

An example of a bonk is when a marathon runner reaches the 20-mile mark and cannot continue because he has exhausted all of his body's fuel. While human beings have been walking the planet, we have been getting into situations and fights where a head can be seriously hit. The most obvious thing is that the tails of your skis churn behind you, hitting your friends' helmets and making skis deadly in crowded spaces like a gondola line. The road goes down a huge hill to Sandsend, where they talk about going “up” to Lythe Church.
