    иди на хуй, the Russian phrase for "go fuck yourself" is more or less directly translated to "go sit on a dick".

You're right, but in this case you can either split hair ("how exactly do I go fuck myself?") or accept the idiomatic route. Speaking as a Pole, English to Slavics is all but easy to do directly and vice versa.
