    Bueno, como es el juego del condón, imagino que esos "lurve" sean en realidad "larve" que se pronuncia parecido y poniéndole la "u" permite la rima.

    Larve: larva
    Imagino que quiera decir bichejo con esa variación.

    It should be "no glove no love". The "glove" refers to a condom.

    lurve is the smoothie's way of saying love. What is a smoothie? Se puede decir zalamero? Es un tipo que piensa que las chavas le encuentran irresistible.
    I'm sure that spanish is terrible. Anyway, it's someone who thinks he's a real lurve-machine! :eek:

    Zalamero is a kind of person who makes vows or makes compliments cloyingly. A smoothie is actually a casanova, or pretends to be one?

    PS: I usually call people who pretend to be casanovas "turbolovers" (yes, in English)

    Sorry, I couldn't visit that site at work. "No glove no love" is the standard phrase with 75,000 Google hits. The variant that started this thread has only a few hundred hits.

    Lurve es "love". Es una forma coloquial de escribirlo en inglés británico, porque suena igual debido a que la "R" se aspira en esa variante.

    Así que la idea de esta frase es que sin condón no hay amor...o sea ehm...uds entienden...jajajaja
