"The act of engaging in sexual activity (often a quiet blowjob, so as not to attract attention) while backstage during a play or other theatrical performance. Named for Sir Laurence Olivier, widely praised as one of the greatest actors of all time."

why not name it after him?  would you rather it be called a sloppy Gielgud?  or is that already some other odd offstage act?
