In case you're still stuck on this one, hengymro, it's not as shocking as it sounds: an expression ending with the taboo word simply means "very energetically" !! The word is of course quite harmless in the U.S. anyway in its everyday usage, and comes (which I didn't realize) from "Bulgarian" as certain 11th entury heretics from there were supposed to practise sodomy! How words do change.....................

It was a relief when I got the right answer. My first guess would make even Julian and Sandy blush!

Thank you all- I did have a D in the first part originally but did not realize that an apostrophe could be omitted.

I have this answer but I'm afraid I don't understand the clue at all. If I google the answer it just comes up with a song by Rihanna. And if I google the answer along with the definition I don't see anything relevant at all. Can anybody give me a hint as to how the first definition and the answer relate to each other?

"To go like...." could be followed by either the word in the clue or by the solution.

Thank you. I agree that the must be how the clue must be supposed to work but I am deeply unimpressed.
