Mensagem: 

According to Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English Online, Innuendo means:

 

innuendo plural innuendoes or innuendos [uncountable and countable]
a remark that suggests something sexual or unpleasant without saying it directly, or these remarks in general  [double entendre]

 

Example:


 His writing is full of sexual innuendoes.
 a campaign based on rumour, innuendo, and gossip

 

[double entendre]: [countable]
a word or phrase that may be understood in two different ways, one of which is often sexual

 

Hope it Helps :)
