  2. “Erotic” thesaurus though? Most of these are hilarious but in a very un-sexy sort of way. Idk unless the term “fuzzburger” gets you going…

    • I guess it depends on how you say them. My wife and I have adopted some rather unsexy words into our vocabulary. Although they’re usually used in a more joking-but-still-let’s-have -sex way (or just humorously). Some of which came about by discussing how unsexy they were… Guess we got into the habit.

  3. This article immediately reminded me of The L Word episode where they were listing off names for it. I’ve called mine ‘kitty’ and ‘she/her’ in the past.

    • I’d definitely pleasure your hot box until your fluids uncontrollably squirting all over js lol

  4. A really common Irish one is ghee/gee, which has always made eating Indian food slightly uncomfortable.

    • One of my non-Irish friends’ nickname is G but Facebook don’t let you put an initial so she has Gee instead and yeah.

  5. Words I have seen being used:
    Cream factory
    Soft shell tuna tacos
    Fish market
    Sweet and Lo

    I also know a few slangs for it other languages, but I think that’s for another time.

  6. “Vortex in the centre of the galaxy” to quote DeAnne Smith!

    I’ve taken to using “pirate cat” and really hope it catches on.

  7. “Happy valley.” Which is kind of awkward/awesome as I live near an actual town called Happy Valley.

  8. Some of these names are cute mostly because I like eating them (hehe),but most of them are making me nauseous. I never thought I would say that when I was talking about vagina.

  9. My friends in Asia send me names like Fodi, Puchi, puchhi, pundi, Pundai, chuut, cheeri etc belonging perhaps to various languages of India.They have thousands of dialects; so perhaps equal number of names used for vagina too.

  10. My wife refers to hers as the stomping grounds. I’ve always adored that myself and try to prove myself at the stomping grounds as much as possible. I also refer to it as eating at the y one of my all-time favorites. Are you down?
