I was going for "masturbediwn fental" (f), but "manystuprediwn fental"
would also fit, with my vote going to the second one. The words seem to
be a Learned Borrowing. Among Brithenig's other vulgarities the earthy

Lo! thy dread empire, Chaos! is restored;
Light dies before thy uncreating word:
Thy hand, great Anarch! lets the curtain fall;
And Universal Darkness buries All.
