    What is the better way to translate it?? A moan of pleasure, a groan of pleasure or a wail of pleasure??

    Thanks.

    Tanto "moan" como "groan of pleasure" suenan muy sexual.....¿es eso lo que quiere decir? Si es así, diría yo "moan of pleasure"

    Sí. La frase que estoy intentando traducir es:
    Cambiaras de opinión cuando veas gemir de placer a tu hermana entre mis brazos.
    Y yo la había traducido como:
    You will change your mind when you see your sister moaning of pleasure/groaning of pleasure/whailing of pleasure in my arms.

    "Moaning of" no suena bien. Mucho mejor decir "moaning with"

    Moan, mejor. Moan with (concuerdo con tracerbullet)
    Groan suele ser negativo.
    Whail no existe, es wail (llanto).

    Moan with pleasure. You probably won't find an explanation of this nuance in any dictionaries: moan is more often associated with pleasure (esp. sexual pleasure), and groan with pain or discomfort, although both can mean either, depending on the context in which they're used.

    Of course, if she's really fun-loving, she might squeal with pleasure. ;)
