Becoming a devout religious fraud came easy to Rowling, 1,000,000,000,000 pounds easy. She'd claim to be Tibetan if it would help sell books in
I'm not a fanfiction reader but I read enough to know that there are a bazillion of fairly well informed, sexually active pre-16s. This revelation
caused me to reexamine Ms. Rowling's tongue-in-cheek, or elsewhere, sexual and scatological references. It's not what Christ would have
First, there was the time-worn "Uranus" joke. Explain that to a six year old.
Followed by hundreds of hardly disguised, not disguised at all is
what I mean, sexual innuendos.
"Wands are only as powerful as the wizards who use them. Some wizards just like to boast that theirs are bigger and more powerful than others."
Hermione: "Okay, Ron, come here so I can do you...." Shortly followed by Ron:"It's not that, it [the beard] gets in the way!"
"Good," said Voldemort (after Lucius handed over his wand). He drew out his own wand and compared the lengths.
"Harry felt sickened by what he had seen, by the use to which Draco was now being put by Voldemort."

Snape to Dumbledore: "'What are you doing with Potter, all those evenings that you are closeted together?' Snape asked abruptly."

Krum, at the Wedding:"He drew his wand from inside his robes and tapped it menacingly, on his thigh; sparks flew out of the end."

"Grab hold, and make it tight. I'll do Potter!" said Greyback, seizing a fistful of Harry's hair...
"Erecto" said Hermione as she put up a a tent + Hermione pointed her wand at Ron's tent and said "Erecto!"
"Some wizards just like to boast that theirs are bigger and better than other people's."
Harry, remarking on Polyjuiced Ron's appearance: "'Well, he's not my type, but he'll do.'"
"Can you feel it, though?" Ron asked in a hushed voice, as he held it tight in his clenched fist.
"It's no wonder I can't get it out, Hermione, you packed my old jeans, they're too tight!"
Harry with Draco's friendly wand. ("He selected the shorter of the two, which felt friendlier in his hand...")
"Well, I've -- you know -- I've come back. If --" He cleared his throat. "You know. You still want me."
... Ron looked down at his hands. He seemed momentarily surprised to see the things he was holding.
"Oh yeah, I got it out," he said, rather unnecessarily...
Just generally, the whole Ron and Hermione disappearing just before the battle. I completely read it as "I don't want to die a virgin!"
