This collection of verses have also been web-published at OEDILF.coman online humor dictionary that has accumulated 120,000 carefully edited limericks. 
As limerick-writers are often tempted to dive into the baser spheres of human life, the dictionary has a "curtained room", accessible only to online members, presumably flagging that the designated verses may not be suitable for children. On his own recognizance, Giorgio has selected the following verses from OEDILF's Curtained Room, based on their  requiring only "light curtaining", and taken the risk of offending some readers by publishing them on this otherwise sedate, and arguably family-oriented blog.

WARNING: The following verses may not be suitable for all ages. Those under 12 or over 82 are advised to read the following content only with the permission and supervision of an adult family member.  

Business Agenda
Buoy and Gull
The Clench
Come and Go
Florid (STD)

Authors' Note: 

oy gevalt (oy-guh-VULT): phrase borrowed from Yiddish; an exclamation expressing shock, surprise or disapproval

schadenfreude (SHA-den-froi-duh, or as here, sha-den-FROI-duh): loanword from German; taking delight in others' misfortune

Authors' Note: The authors hope and trust that Fran did actually check the age of her agents.

Authors' Note:  In the above verse, italics and blue font are used to indicate idioms that fall under the grammatical label of "binomial expressions". Read more verses explaining and exemplifying musical clichés of this type HERE.  

Authors' Note: 

STD: initialism for 'sexually transmitted disease', a problem for which one might consult an STD-clinic or an STD-doc

Although it's principal meanings revolve around the Latin term for flowery or flourishingflorid has come to imply, in the medical context, "referring todisease or to a symptom in its fully developed form", or perhaps "fragrantly, flagrantly florid".

FOLLOW-UP INFO:  Lots of ordinary folks (not just prurient porn-buffs) have united in their demand for more verses on related topics, even if they require lightweight "curtaining" !
