Of course on this topic (and since it's a Friday)...

and taking into account the talk of straight-jackets...

and the well known meme that Perl isn't a bondage and discipline language...

There's clearly the option of an ahem "adult" themed version of this*.

Java: You are constantly accompanied by your maiden aunt. Chaperoned 
like this your virtue is safe, but you certainly aren't enjoying yourself.

Python: "Hmm, the ceiling needs painting again"

Lisp: Tantric - sounds great, but do you really have the spare time to 
do it properly?

Perl: The Kama Sutra, available in Introductory and Advanced editions.

* It would also give O'Reilly a whole new theme for their book covers too**.

** But please, no volunteer nude modelling. The Womens' Institute might 
get away with that sort of thing, but nobody looks good by the light of 
a green-screen monitor.
