I know I'm treading on dangerous ground here (but what can I say, I'm a thrillseeker). But did the term nookie (or nooky - depending on which side of the sheltershed you grew up on), evolve from the word 'nook' which means:
a sheltered and secluded place, or
an interior angle formed be two meeting walls
And if so, is the inference that the nookie was carried out in such a location, or hmmm... I said it was dangerous ground, the nature of the activity is in such a place.
Or is there a different origin completely?
