My prefix is where you may live outside your house

Though it can be very uncomfortable if you're not used to it

My infix is what you should never ever touch

It might just end your life in an instant

My suffix is what you can use to call your pet

But if your mind's dirty, you may mistake me for that other one :)

Hint 1 :

Almost everyone will eventually go to (The Word)

Hint 2 :

The word itself is a place you can stay

To clarify :

The last line is about the suffix

The Note has nothing to do with the riddle

The title also has nothing to do with the riddle (I just ran out of ideas :D)

Note :

Sorry if you think this is not appropriate, but that is not what I meant by the last line at all

Studying around here I think you are a

campus

My prefix is where you may live outside your house, though it can be very uncomfortable ...

camp - as in a base.

My infix is what you should never ever touch It might just end your life in an instant

amp - especially if high power.

My suffix is what you can use to call your pet, but if your mind's dirty, you may mistake me for ...

pus - I'm ashamed to say this was my lead in.

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Okay well, we don't judge here. +1 from me, but only because the suffix was your lead-in ;) $\endgroup$ – El-Guest Aug 31 '18 at 13:57

Still haven't figured out all the clues, but I'm thinking of

Tentacle

Prefix

Tent

Infix

AC as in AC current

Suffix

Not sure about this one.

Also

Tentacle has some dirty connotations to it.

  • $\begingroup$ Sorry, but that's not the intended answer :) $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Aug 30 '18 at 6:06
  • $\begingroup$ Btw, your first part is almost (ALMOST) correct but not the intended word :) $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Aug 30 '18 at 10:06

Is the answer

Welcome ?

My prefix is where you may live outside your house

Though it can be very uncomfortable if you're not used to it

There is a proverb "Like a frog in a well" and a story too about a frog who lived in a well. It's a nice story though.

My infix is what you should never ever touch

It might just end your life in an instant

This might be a stretch but the infix is el, can be treated as eel? Eel blood is poisonous to humans and can kill you. Also some eels are known to electrocute other animals.

My suffix is what you can use to call your pet

But if your mind's dirty, you may mistake me for that other one :)

My mind is dirty...... Normally when we call pets, a dog in this example, we use "Come here, insert name of pet", but really. My mind is just dirty.

I know the note has some significance but I'm not sure about it yet

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Nope, that's incorrect :) $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Aug 30 '18 at 5:10
  • $\begingroup$ I shall try again soon! $\endgroup$ – R.D Aug 30 '18 at 5:14

I'd like to say the answer is

Innuendo

But I'm not able to associate it well with all lines

My prefix is where you may live outside your house Though it can be very uncomfortable if you're not used to it

inn

My infix is what you should never ever touch
It might just end your life in an instant

'uend' is the infix -> u end -> you end -> your life ends?

My suffix is what you can use to call your pet

But if your mind's dirty, you may mistake me for that other one

Innuendo is used to make innocent words seem dirty

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Unfortunately wrong :) $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Aug 30 '18 at 5:10
  • $\begingroup$ Regarding the suffix, perhaps (ROT13) Vg pbhyq or RAQB, juvpu vf fubeg sbe RAQBGUREZVP, zrnavat "jnez-oybbqrq navznyf" (r.t. n enoovg). Gung vapyhqrf fb znal navznyf, vg pbhyq rira or lbhe crg! :D $\endgroup$ – Mr Pie Sep 1 '18 at 3:31

Okay, this is a bit of a stretch, but could the answer be

CIRCUITIES?

My prefix is where you may live outside your house

CIRC $\to$ CIRCUS $\to$ CIRCUS TENT $\to$ TENT.

Though it can be very uncomfortable if you're not used to it

You might become homesick, or just simply not enjoy the experience.

My infix is what you should never ever touch

IT, as in Pennywise the Dancing Clown.

It might just end your life in an instant

IT might just end your life in an instant.

My suffix is what you can use to call your pet

You can use a SELECTION of names to call your pet (for which the word starts with the suffix, S, and there are plenty of names that start with S, too).

But if your mind's dirty, you may mistake me for that other one :)

S can also stand for a whole range of dirty things, from things that are actually dirty (like SH$\ast\ast$ because you are picking up your pet's doodoo) and things that are just dirty (like SEX, because you are referring to the gender of your pet).

Especially the line, there's a s${}$nake in my boot!


Title:

Don't Know What to Call This Anymore

This is an example of a circuity, as it lacks straightforwardness (since the title should be along the lines of "Riley Riddle" perhaps?). Nonetheless, the hints indicate that the word, circuities, is not the answer, anyways...

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Not the correct answer, unfortunately but good try (+1) :) Btw, the title is not related (I just ran out of ideas) :D $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Aug 31 '18 at 13:41
  • $\begingroup$ @KevinL I think this is one of the toughest of your Riley Riddles, thus far :D $\endgroup$ – Mr Pie Aug 31 '18 at 13:42
  • $\begingroup$ Really? Thanks mate. I'm thinking of starting yet another bounty on this tomorrow :D Edit : The prefix (as I have said in a comment to sedrick) is almost correct. You just gotta [Hint] {Rot13} (svaq nabgure jbeq jvgu nyzbfg gur fnzr zrnavat) :D $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Aug 31 '18 at 13:43
  • $\begingroup$ @KevinL If you want, you can remind me of this question tomorrow and I'll see if I can put a bounty up, as I have more reputation than you :D $\endgroup$ – Mr Pie Aug 31 '18 at 13:45
