Or Maybe The Marvelous Maw Of Life?

This isn’t something I often think about, so I was kind of shocked when I came across it yesterday. But apparently there has been quite a bit of discussion started by journalist Annalisa Barbieri over at the Gaurdian.

What should we tell our daughters to call their vaginas?

Throughout the article, different women give suggestions for what they use as a code name for the vadge. And at the end , a helpful list of terms is given to the reader to help them pick out a new, more exciting name for your kid’s vagina. Terms like Snooky, Minnie, Pinky Bo-Bo and Doris. You know, sensical terms.

Intern Katy over at Jezebel took the words right out of my mouth. Vagina. Call it a vagina for fuck sake. I’m pretty sure that vagina has been working pretty smoothly up until now, and I think changing it to Doris will only cause confusion and frustration and awkward moments. Can you imagine porns?

Oh yeah, baby, I’m gonna tear your Pinky Bo-Bo up!

It sounds like this man is threatening to destroy a little girl’s doll. Not sexy.

I just don’t understand the reasoning behind any of this. I grew up calling my penis my ‘privates’, but I think I always knew it was really called a penis. But even that was a shy issue.

From here on out, I’m just going to start referring to penises and vaginas as celebrity names. I think it is classy, funny and worthwhile of my time.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve been typing for quite awhile and need to take Alec Baldwin for a leak.

    I grew up calling my vagina a “coolie” that means vagina in German. Nope, my family isn’t German… not sure where that came from…
