In Le Figaro I read today:


"Le droit de cuissage existe encore aussi, malgr'e tout."   I cannot find 'cuissage' in either my old Cassell's or the Collins Robert or the online dictionary.

Can anyone help?

Droit de cuissage is in the dictionary. It's the same as Droit de seigneur, meaning the historic right of the Lord of the Manor to fuck female servants. So I assume we can all guess what this refers to.
