The Swirl and Twist

From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide

The Swirl and Twist are sexual maneuvers that Ellen Tigh specialized in.

Ellen and a Cavil mention them briefly after a sexual interlude (TRS: "Precipice").

Later, a revived Ellen (now recalling her true involvement with the Cylons), asks Sharon Valerii of her relationship with the Number One individual Ellen calls "John," asking her if John taught her about the Swirl in an attempt to belittle John and his anger (TRS: "No Exit").
