Funniest names you've heard for private parts... - Page 2

Angina and peanuts; "I have an angina, but he has a peanuts."

My mother didn't CALL it this seriously, but she joked about calling it "possible." She would say, "Don't forget to wash possible!" It came from the idea of someone reaching alllll the way up and washing as far down as possible, then reaching allll the way down and washing far up as possible, and then....washing possible! :LOL

I thought of another one!

When I was pregnant and having bleeding every month I was home on bedrest one time and she phoned to ask "hows everything....you know, down there?" Um, down where mom? Austrailia? I think everything is fine mom, but if you're talking about my vaginal bleeding, its still there.

I gotta come back and read this when I can, but someone on here posted in the past that they call their sons parts "twig & berries" & I laughed so hard when I read that one!

OMG, that's what my mother called it! Ballet sure was interesting. And don't even get me started on Desmond Tutu! Where do people come up with these words?? To me, they sound goofier and more embarrassing than the correct words (although nothing embarrasses me anymore).

If my DH sees a penis on tv/movie he'll refer to it as a, "dork." I've never heard of this before and it took me a long time to get used to it. If he would say, "look at that dork," my reponse would be, "where?" I wouldn't be thinking about a penis... I'd be thinking of some geek or something, and looking for the wrong thing, lol.

The husband of an acquaintance of mine thought the word "penis" was embarrassing so he taught their son to say "little fireman" instead. :LOL Personally I think that's a whole lot more embarrassing than penis!

That is too cute!

My nephew calls his penis a "pickle".

I've referred to the vagina as a hoo-ha before. :

for some reason ds 1, when he was about 2 came up with the name 'tickle' for vaginas.

he would say, 'woliver willy, daddy willy, mummy tickle' i have no idea where the inspirationf rom that came from, my mum was cool about it but my mil became uncomfortable about his constant mentionning of her having a tickle after a while.

I've also heard "cooter" for female genitalia

When I was little, my parents gave proper names to body parts i.e. Melissa muscle, Earlimire ear, Iris eye, Tom tummy, etc. anyway...female genitalia was "Murphy" I couldn't say that at first so I called it "Mur-Mur" True story...I was 4 and in a pre-Kindergarten program and our teacher read us a story or poem that contained the line "the murmur of the brook" I immediately thought of genitalia although I could tell by the context of the story that it didn't mean THAT. I thought that I was bad because I thought of genitalia, so I refused to go to school for almost 2 weeks (I was 4 so it was optional anyway) and I never told anyone WHY because I was too embarrassed. My mom didn't learn the reason until I was an adult.

My mom used "dirty" as a verb for poop, as in,"Do you need to go dirty?"

I dubbed a fart "invisible dirty" :LOL

Another completely useless fact: 'Dork' is in all actuality just a slang term for a penis, and not the actual name of a part of the penis.

You can check dictionary.com on that one, I'm having trouble accessing the site right now, or I'd link it.

Someone I once knew also mistakingly thought 'dork' was the actual term for a whale's penis *shrugs*

My daughter calls my breasts oooboos. I think she is trying to say Boobies. and she has also come to me and said, "Mommy, my nimples are hurting.", meaning her nipples. It's hard not to laugh or crack a smile when she says stuff like that. I have heard people use "cooter" for the female genatalia, but I personally think "pet names" are kinda more embarassing than the real names. We are in the habit of saying "privates" at our house.

Huh, I had no idea. I've never been really up to date on slang terms in general, I guess you learn something new everyday. Sooo, when someone calls someone a, "dork" they are really calling them a, "penis????" That's awful. I just thought a dork was kind of like a geek.

Well, coming from a classically uptight WASPY family, nothing "down there" EVER got named. Sometimes my mum might ask us if we had "a pain in our pinnie" (ie pinnafore).

I"m trying hard to teach DD the proper words, esp vulva. Its not ALL vagina, ya know?

There's a bit in The Vagina Monologues where they discuss all the names that women have for their genitals. My very favourite was "power bundle" - that came from a 6 year old!!!! More power to ya, little sister!

There was a HI-larious article years ago in Chatalaine magazine about all the funny names parents teach their kids for their genitals. I seem to remember teapot for girls, "wee man" for boys and I think my favourite was "doings".

After DS was born, DD- almost four year old looked at him and said “He has a turniper- just like daddy!”

OMG, I was just getting ready to post how a girl I knew called hers her "Volvo"! I remember laughing so hard I had the hiccups. She said "No, my mom told me that's what it's called...a volvo!". :LOL

We taught the correct names from the get go, but Ds went through a stage of refusing to say penis. They say "crotch" now a lot, or they use slang but I suppose I do too. (Nads, etc)

A friend of mine, who is a mother of two, has great difficulty saying "breast/vagina/penis" so her kids have names for them like "hoohaw" and such. Which is fine, but I sure hope she teaches them the real terms eventually. If they hear the correct term now they are all shocked and embarrased because it's a "dirty word" :

LOL, I love this topic. Too funny

My dh says this about me nursing, that the baby is going *belly up to the milk bar* it cracks me up every time!

My mother called the vagina a Mary Foley and a penis a dimmyflicker!

I tell ppl this vagina name and they think it is a hoot! :LOL My mother went to Catholic school so therefore the name is Irish. My Jewish friend once said to me "Well then I guess I have a Gladys Spiegelmen" :LOL
