As a cat-lover, the misappropriation of the word "pussy" to refer to the female crotch has always puzzled me. Apart from some (variable) degree of furriness, I don't see much resemblance.
Whatever happened to the word "cunny"? Vulva and vagina sound very clinical and detached. Cunt and twat sound very coarse and disrespectful. Cunny sounds warm and friendly - think bunny, sunny, honey - and is unambiguous.

Well I love "Pussy" as non clinic, and not too vulger.
I have used it in Russian, and it is catching on.
OK resemblances I feel. furry you mentioned, also if you stroke it right it purrs, if you stroke it the wrong way, it bits and scratch ;)

It also has a mind of it's own, and has strayed from it master (ok lust/love). Cunny sounds too close to cunt to my ears.

So will stick to pussy, everyone (Eng.) understands what I am talking about (as usually no-one is talking about pets, and sex at the same time).

I've always thought "vulva" and "vagina" were thoroughly lovely words — it just gets my goat when Eve Enslerpeople use them as synonyms. (For the record, the "vagina" is the passageway from the uterus to the outside; the "vulva" is the complete set of external genital organs [vagina, labia, clitoris, etc.])

I can't say I see much difference between "cunny" and "cunt", as the former is obviously derived from the latter. I do find it significant, however, that "proper" terms for sex organs, male and female, all come from Latin or Greek — foregin languages languages of "science", langauges only the formally educated would know — while the words known by the "common" masses, the words derived from our own language's Anglo-Saxon origins, are all considered rude or obscene.

As for "pussy", well, I've grown up with cats myself, and never really had much occasion to use that word for a cat. I know that "pussy" means a female cat, the way "tom" refers to a male cat, and I've heard and read it used in that context, but I also know that "bitch" refers to a female dog (or wolf, or otter, or...), but I rarely find occasion to use that word in its rightful meaning anyway.
It seems that, in both cases, the slang has highjacked the word from its proper definition.

Then again, if some guy tells me that his girlfriend turns into a real bitch at a certain time of the month, I tend to wonder if he's dating a werewolf. :D

I don't think so. According to the OED, Cunny is derived from the Old English word Cony, meaning rabbit or rabbit skin. Cunt is from Kunta, an ancient Norse word (not anglo-saxon), still used in this form in Norway and Sweden.

The funny thing is: the Dutch word 'kont' comes from the same source. It means butt, though - reminiscent of the British/American divergence regarding 'fanny'. My etymological dictionary tells me 'kunta' is a nasalised form of the original word 'kut', with the original meaning of 'cunt' intact - the present-day meaning 'butt' is considered secondary.

The Dutch rude word for 'cunt' is 'kut', by the way.

Cunny is a nice word--tho I have never used it. Actually I have come to appreciate cunt in a non-perjorative way. I remember my delight in reading a modern English translation of the Canterbury Tales and encountering "queinte", which I took to be a way of rendering vulgar slang without actually spelling it out.

Another tangent. Read a great article by a man who wanted to discuss obscene/vulgar words without resorting to euphemisms yet without offending traditionalists. His answer--pronouncing/spelling each word backwards: "cuff". "swerk" etc. A clever way to point out the absurdity of reacting to strongly to words referring to common activities.

BTW, the proper term for a female cat is not pussy but queen. Bet some lady cat thought that up.

I stayed a few months in a retreat center in Scotland. One morning before staff meeting I showed them pictures of my cat and my mom's cat. The ladies, who were proper church women, exclaimed "Look at [Artlover's] pussies". I smiled, said nothing to puncture their innocence and only wished for a pluralization of what had always been singular.

Any of you encountered any pet names that women gave to their privates? My ex-GF called her cunt "Marsha", which I quite liked. (Both the name and the named :) ). Her boobs were Hope and Grace, which came in handy when she needed to give me directions :)


Then there's that Seinfeld episode. "Mulva?"

I think cunny is almost as pussy-footing as pussy. My American pen-friend used to refer to her cunny, but her husband and I, working in tandem, have taught her to call it a cunt without blushing.

In Liverpool, when I was young, girls used to refer to their cunt as their Little Mary.

I agree with Philos--go with that one-tenth. There's a good first-date ice-breaker: Hey, what do you call your vagina> I like to call it cunt myself. Then she will throw a glass of ice water on you and break the mood, hence, ice-breaker.

I could ask a lady to start using cunt, but I would rather focus on getting her to wear a French maid's outfit ;)

Pussy works for me. In the USA its pretty universally understood. Cunt seems rude. No women I've ever said it to has responded well. Cunny, bunny etc seem like internet euphmisms (sp) for underage, the kind of sites that keep lollipops and saddle shoes as standard props. Names like or related to food you like might make some sense, but lobster thermador seems a bit unweildy for the bedroom. I've never had a girl friend that named her body parts, so I'm not sure how that would go. But if she were to say "go down and pay Gerti some mind" I'm sure I'd catch on.

Wow, so many smart people around here. Yes, pudenda basically means "something to be ashamed of", but I still like it for that reason. We also refer to genitalia here in the neuter sense as "privates", which is a little more correct and less politically charged, but I wonder still if it's not what the ancient Italians were getting at. From what I understand, they weren't exactly modest. They had public bathrooms and bathhouses. They often infibulated the genitals of slaves. And though nudity wasn't exactly a big deal, certain things were still taboo. For example, it was considered distasteful for a man to expose his glans, a real problem for circumcised dude. More than likely, it was because exposing the glans is a sign of sexual arousal and not socially acceptable behavior in public. This is just a guess, but perhaps it was not ladylike for a woman to part her thighs, but to keep the pudenda somewhat hidden.

Anyway, anyone know the origin of the term "cooter"? I've noticed that many women here in the states actually like this term.

BigSpud

When you were browsing in your dictionaries, did you notice that the word penis is from the Latin word for "tail"? The word vagina is from the Latin word for "sheath." Interestin, huh?

I dated a girl who called her pussy a "cooter." I liked "snatch," but she abhorred the word.

Yes, pudenda basically means "something to be ashamed of", but I still like it for that reason. This is still very much prevalent in the Netherlands:

pubic hair = schaamhaar (shame hair)
pubic region = schaamstreek (shame region)
private parts = schaamdelen (shame parts)

The literal meaning (and the shame) is gone, but the words are still there.

I always assumed it was called 'pussy' because of the fur. In that respect, AW girls have more right to use the word than most of the other models on the net.
What I hate, though, is the term 'shaved pussy'. That conjures up some truly disturbing images.

Exactly. Boys have a pee-pee and girls have a cunny.

The sanskrit (Indian) word is yoni which means sacred place or sacred temple. That's a little far out to use in everyday speech. It's also known as lotus, flower, or the mysterious place or temple of mystery.

I've never been slapped for telling a date I'd like to solve her mystery or kiss her flower. Funny looks, but never slapped. And they usually figure out what I mean.

Eating pussy doesn't make any sense. There's hardly any meat, you're still hungry when you finish, it has no nutritional value, and if not prepared properly it can taste salty, bitter, or pugnent. Some say it tastes better if you remove the fur first, others like to keep it for appearances and presentation.

But dispite all the drawbacks, it's still SO much fun!

They also grope their own balls a lot too Over here we call that being a baseball player. :D Or Roseanne Arnold. :D

Evangeline, you remind me of me. A girl in high school, who I desperately wanted to see naked, wrote in my yearbook that I had a clean heart and a dirty mind. Best of both worlds if you ask me. :D

Yeah...we get to have lots of fun with the dirty mind but the clean heart stops us getting in trouble! (And it stops the girls with dirty minds from being seen as sluts....)

Sometimes I think "slut" is the jerk-guy code word for "she refused me" :D.

Hmmm.... Yeah.... There are some twats out there.
I got called wanton the other day. For trying to corrupt my guy-whose-desk-I-sit-on. And I'm not sure if the guy was joking or not. For some reason I've got quite a reputation at work (maybe because of the time I went out with a few colleagues, rode on a mechanical bull and snogged 2 barmen and 2 bouncers) but I'm a good girl really. :(

And I'm not sure if the guy was joking or not. 1. He's a prude.
2. He's a lawyer.
3. He's jealous.

My money is on #3. ("Wanton" as in "wantin' to..." :D )

Must try some of this "snogging". Sounds like fun. :D

Wait a minute! Maybe I have done some snogging!!

What is it? ;)

Probably technically correct, but it fails to capture the tone. Mark 'snogged' down as an untranslatable Briticism.

(Does 'snog' occur in Aussie English too?)

French kiss is more for long lingering kisses whilst snogging is more ....um... more.... not frantic but... I don't know. :confused:

I used to watch "As Time Goes By". In one episode, Geoffrey Palmer's character is waiting at a photo booth while a young couple are laughing and giggling inside. He finally loses patience and thrusts aside the curtain--he excuses this intrusion by saying that he thought the two were snogging. The girl is amused that an older man knows the word, and the boy accuses him of being a dirty old man. Hehe. So I knew that snogging involved more than a peck on the cheek. (Great show, by the way, co-starring the redoubtale Dame Judi Dench.)

Perhaps I should do a research study to determine what snogging actually is. I could use a lovely, smart research assistant with a good knowledge of IT. Any volunteers...? Maybe the girl over there dangling her legs on that desk again... ? :D

Or, more likely, "I wouldn't even have a chance with her."

I was hoping you would notice.:D I will be emailing the research protocols and a carton of dental floss. For the experimental portion of the study, of course. :D And in honor of Mrs. Roops' profession.

Will I be part of the experimental portion or must I find 2 people who will "snog" with me watching? :p

Absolutely not! It's the most despicable term out there. Do you know where it comes from? It comes from the Latin "pudere", which means "to be ashamed".

Genitals should never be associated with shame.

According to Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vulva#Etymology): The word vulva was taken from the Medieval Latin word volva or vulva ("womb, female genitals"), probably from the Old Latin volvere ("to roll"; lit. "wrapper"). This is similar to Sanskrit word ulva ("womb").[17]
