John Thomas?

When Lady Chatterley's Lover, D.H. Lawrence's notoriously explicit novel, was first released in 1928, it was declared obscene and banned in the American and England (until 1961). Lawrence had nothing but contempt for "illiterate" censors and once mused that, but for its racy title, the book would not have been banned.

Among his working titles for the book? "Tenderness" and... "John Thomas and Lady Jane".

[John Thomas is of course a euphemism for a penis.]
