"Probe Feel" does not need obscure or sexual references.
I could explain why the sexual references are totally invalid based on my experiences, but will not.
It is simply "like butter"--no more, no less.
Everyone has butter available and it is reasonably consistent.
Each cook will need to "calibrate the feel", but that only takes a few attempts.
If you get the "feel" and it turns out tough later, simply adjust your "feel" the next time.
This is not Rocket Science and is not Hustler material.
