== shuen == (noun) drinking bout, banquet.
|Top radical is 'house/building'. The bottom element is an obsolete character composed of 'sun' (日) and 'woman' (女). It meant, literally, 'dazzling woman', and was often used as a euphemism for 'prostitute', and by extension became associated with drinking parties in brothels. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Banquet hosted by woman in sunny house.'|
