You say *chenHa' meyrI'.* The context will make clear the application.

Compare English /the penny drops./ You say this phrase to mean that 
someone has suddenly understood something that has been eluding them. 
You don't change it to say things like /John drops the penny/ or /the 
penny drops on John/ or anything like that. You just say /the penny 
drops/ and the context is understood.

This is how I understand *chenHa' meyrI'.* To say /the alien fails to 
climax sexually/ using the slang phrase, you talk about the alien, then 
say *chenHa' meyrI'.*
