OK I will add to my previous post that the very correct lady of the house. (They own the bigest industry in the village, keep a stable of horses and are very high in the education and pecking order here) explained that taquin meant a women that would tease men in a sexual way. Hence my embarrasement.
I agree our £30 huge dictionary did not explain that meaning at all. As said before at least they thought it funny. After all I had just called the husband a taquin or "sexual teaser" which here and in England is a quite big insult.
