Pornosophy

1. The fornications of wisdom
2. The harlotry of wisdom

The unashamed exhibition of the mind’s workings (preferably one’s own), or of the results thereof, intended to cause mental &/or intellectual excitement and the indecent enflaming of the mind.

First usage of the word as an adjective [pornosophical] by James Joyce in Ulysses, Chapter 15 (Circe).
