wrongclass

noun;
a phrase/part of a conversation intentionally constructed to have a “dirty” double meaning. Clearly derived from misclass; mis was glossed as ‘wrong or incorrect’ (as in misundestanding). In this case, the native wrong replaced the Latinate mis in the word misclass. The use of wrong as opposed to mis in this word indicates intentionality. A misunderstanding, for example, is understood to be unintentional; thus the use of misclass was restricted to those “dirty” double entendres that are unintentional. A new word was coined to express “dirty” double entendres intentionally spoken.
 
That's not misclass - that's wrongclass.
Etymology : derived from misclass; mis was glossed as ‘wrong or incorrect,’ and 'wrong' replaced 'mis' in this neologism
