Ugh. No, no and no. How can there be so many names for a woman's nether regions and not one of them I want to say? Pussy? Too porny. Vajayjay? Too trendy. And the proper term, vagina? It sounds like something that involves medical diagrams and perhaps special ointments.
Besides, as faithful readers may remember, I have a quirk of prudery that makes me feel like a giggly, immature kid in sex ed class whenever I am forced to say the word vagina. (Yes, forced. When you have children, saying vagina is unavoidable.)
Except for the aforementioned educational contexts with my daughters, I rarely refer to these female parts by any sort of name. It's actually quite amazing (and kind of pitiful) how one can go decades without ever having to use particular words. I mean, I birthed babies, had sex, went to the gyno -- never once uttering the phrase "my vagina."
But I am a big girl now and need to get over this! Tell me, dear readers, what's a good name for a feminist, (sort of) mature chick to call her, uh, you know? What do you call it? (And do NOT tell me anything involving the word "beef" because that whole line of vaginal slang will simply not do.)
