This is a family list, so perhaps I shouldn't. :)

In Australia slang, "date" is short for "date hole", which is the part of 
the anatomy which is also known as "the [one] brown eye". In parts of the 
US, it is also known as the "corn hole", and in Cockney rhyming slang it 
is a jam role.

I trust I don't need to be any more explicit...
