This question has caused much discussion between me and DH as I don't think there is a normal and sensible word to use for a girl. Everything seems either silly/ridiculous or else too crude or technical. We've gone through as many as we can think of from front bum to fu and mary, etc The three we ended up with were tuppence, fanny or vagina, but none of them seem right. I would go with fanny as I think it's okay to use as it's a girls name, one I use myself, but I have been greeted with gasps of shock from people I've discussed it with, most of who think tuppence is the answer, but I think tuppence is kind of avoiding saying the proper name. When I grew up the only name my mum ever said was 'underneath'! Is there a universally acceptable name for it that I am somehow missing? Something my daughter can say that won't be greeted with either shock or laughter? It seems that most people can't talk about this part of a female body without getting embarrassed. Much easier for boys. What does anyone else use?
