I wanted to try my hand at one of these since it seems to be so popular.

My prefix is what leeches do.
To get my infix, do the following:
Take what you are doing right now, and turn it sideways.
My suffix is how people get around.
I can be an excuse for infidelity.

What am I?

I'm thinking its

succubus

My prefix is what leeches do.

Suck

To get my infix, do the following: Take what you are doing right now, and turn it sideways.

User 1848 got this below in the comments while I was stumped - right now you see this riddle (accounting for POV shifts anyway). "you see" = UC, which is then "turned" to CU, which is indeed the missing segment i needed.

My suffix is how people get around.

Bus

I can be an excuse for infidelity

Well, I dont think "a sex demon made me do it" will fly as an excuse, but feel free to try...

  • $\begingroup$ That was quick. You're right. But I'd like to see you get the infix. P.S. it's heavy on wordplay. $\endgroup$ Aug 13, 2018 at 21:12
  • $\begingroup$ Also, it may be easier to work backward for the infix. $\endgroup$ Aug 13, 2018 at 21:14
  • $\begingroup$ I'd like to see me get the infix too! I'm currently thinking rot13[bzrguvat gb qb jvgu phorf (r.t. gur zngurzngvpny bcrengvba) ] - am I tepid, or freezing? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Maybe currently 'you see' and 'uc' turned sideways is 'cu,' which makes up the middle portion of the word? $\endgroup$
