Learn English – Does this sound vulgar or have sexual connotations?


I'd like to ask you to help me clarifying if a brand name sounds sexual/vulgar/queer for native English speakers.

It is "I Job You" which is a social job recommendation site. However, we had some feedback about the name that is has some sexual connotation (blow job? hand job?)

How do you see it? Does it ring any sexual bell for the first read? Can it be used on a native English market?

Best Answer

It certainly rang sexual bells in me, but I cannot say whether it will for others. In any case it is an awkward expression that is perhaps best avoided unless you want it to sound so to attract attention.
