If you are an OG Harry Potter fan like me, then you began reading the books long before the movies came out. Seriously, I’ve been obsessed with HP for nearly two decades at this point, which means that I literally grew up with the characters. I remember the days before Kindles and Amazon Prime when I had to stand outside of Border’s Bookstore at midnight in order to get my hands on J.K. Rowling‘s latest delight. It’s been several years since I re-read the entire saga, but after getting through all seven books once more this summer, I realized Harry Potter is full of innuendos and quotes that are much filthier than I remember. Here are 5 quotes from Harry Potter that are filthier than I remember. (Ironically, they’re all from the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and beyond.)
1.”Oh, Professor, look! I think I’ve got an unexpected planet! Oooh, which one’s that, Professor?”
“It is Uranus, my dear,” said Professor Trelawney, peering down at the chart.
“Can I look at Uranus, too, Lavender?” said Ron. –Harry Potter and the Goblet Of Fire
Oh Won Won, you cheeky lad!
2.Have you been spying on him, too?” said Harry indignantly. “What d’you do, sneak up here in the evenings to watch the Prefects take baths?”
“Sometimes,” said Myrtle, rather slyly, “but I’ve never come out to speak to anyone before.” Harry Potter and the Goblet Of Fire
Myrtle was low-key a brazen cougar!
3. “What’s happened to you?” asked Harry, for Hermione looked distinctly disheveled, rather as though she had just fought her way out of a thicket of Devil’s Snare.
“Oh, I’ve just escaped — I mean, I’ve just left Cormac,” she said. “Under the mistletoe,” she added in explanation, as Harry continued to look questioningly at her. –Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Cormac was truly a cad!
4. “But unbidden into his mind came an image of that same deserted corridor with himself kissing Ginny instead … The monster in his chest purred.” –Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Harry was ready to unleash his “monster.”
5. “This isn’t your average book,” said Ron. “It’s pure gold: Twelve Fail-Safe Ways to Charm Witches. Explains everything you need to know about girls. If only I’d had this last year I’d have known exactly how to get rid of Lavender and I would’ve known how to get going with… Well, Fred and George gave me a copy, and I’ve learned a lot. You’d be surprised, it’s not all about wandwork, either.” –Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
There is nothing wrong with a little “wandwork”.
