The word delicioso comes from the Latin deliciousus which has the same connotation as its Spanish-speaking variant. Therefore, it is from this concept that all other meanings of the term derive and originate.

The origin of this phrase is attributed to Mexicans, since they are usually very creative when talking about the sexual act. It’s popular with 16- and 20-year-olds on social media, and it’s no surprise, because the act of sex has the most nicknames. It was taken from the original sense of the word and in addition to being used in memes it has also been seen in the media in their daily notes.

The cake before recess.

Pancho’s dinner.

Squeak the cot.

Put everything but fear.

Putting on your heels facing the ceiling.
