What are more phrases like "float your boat"?

Asked by segdeha (1687 points ) February 27th, 2008

I’m writing a blog post and I really want to emphasise that a particular activity does it for me. Without being crude or risking innuendo. I want more phrases like “float your boat.” Help me brainstorm!

@Phil, “Flies your kite” works.
@squirbel, I like it!

tickles your caboose.. (but that is risking innuendo). pops your cherry (crude). hmm this is hard.

It is hard. That’s why I asked. :-)

blows your hair back, trips your trigger, knocks your socks off, flips your switch,

Yanks your chain.

@pattyb, I like “flips your switch” (though it’s too late to use it since the blog post is already out there).

@omfgTALIjustIMDu, I associate yanking one’s chain with being jerked around. Do I have that wrong?

@segdeha, I don’t know, my cousin always says it in the same context one would say “floats your boat.”
