Times Lewd Roman

A sneaky variation of Times New Roman

Instead of the customary serifs that characterise the classic typeface, Times Lewd Roman is subtly embellished with erogenous detail.

These are placed very discretely on each letter so as not to be immediately obvious, as Times is a very sober and upright citizen in the typographic world. Tiny sets of testicles would dangle demurely from the bottom of some letters, others would display erections poised at various angles, while bums, breast, nipples and vaginal detail would conceal themselves easily at strategic points throughout the entire font. At sizes less than 12 point, these would probably only be identifiable under a magnifying glass. The range would naturally extend itself into upper and lower case, along with all the symbols and numerals, with the ligatures being able to engage in penetrative copulation of every kind. There are other "rude" typefaces, but they are very graphic, loud and obvious. Times Lewd's true nature only reveals itself on very close inspection.

The typeface would be especially useful when writing to some humourless religious fanatic, anti-environmentalist, political warmonger, animal abuser, whale hunting scum, etc etc - they're all in my sights. Wish them a nice day, or some other dimwitted platitude, using a typeface that quietly depicts the "e" happily engaging in doggie tricks with the "a".

       (+) [xenzag] There is a Computer:Font category.   

       Keep writing those letters!

       thanks consulFlaminus - didn't spot that place - will move idea, and yes I do write a lot of letters.   

       miasere - there is an excellent programme called Fontographer, very comprehensive, ridiculously cheap, given its capabilities and it's easily available

       [+] Although I don't know if I'd use it myself, I think it's really creative thinking!

       boy, are you on the right idea?

       i can visualize two elderly bibliophiles haggling over a rare "penis" printing of macbeth..

       I thought most schoolboys added their own embellisments?

       Yeah, they've been stacked towards the conservative side for some time now.

       sp. sneaky.

       bristolz - thanks for sp spotting.

       If sufficiently sneaky, I'd use Lewd Time Roman for business correspondence. Maybe it would have a subliminal "good feeling" effect, thus working to my advantage. nice.

       Or you might just get a law suit.

       Come to think of it, I think my two year, "hardly go but can't get out of it", gym membership was drafted in Lewd Times Roman. Yes. I believe it was...   

       Joe, get my attorney on the line!
Zuzu, Jan 16 2006

       It would be brilliant if it matched the mother font metrics exactly, (ie it looked the same apart from the embellishments) - then you could use it for emphasis.

       [+] Could also drive a whole new font option; instead of just "Bold", "Italics", and "Underlined", we could also have "Masculine", "Feminine", and "Hermaphroditic" options.   

       Next time I have to write a paper on feminist ethics, I might actually enjoy it.

       Incidentally, there was a famous April 1st hoax by the Guardian, consisting of a several-page pullout section about San Seriffe, a tropical island. The writers noted that the anti-pornography laws had been relaxed, leading to the publication of many risqué books by Seriffean journalists, known collectively as Times Lewd Romances.

       I'll take the Sophia Loren font, please

       The first rude typeface I designed and drew up was Helviticunt. It needs no explanation, and I didn't posted it here because I thought it was a bit too obvious. I never drew up Times Lewd Roman, but maybe someday I will. Perhaps it's already in use and no one has noticed.
