Private Parts

MuffysPinguLove MuffysPinguLove
My boyfriend once told me a story about how when he was little his mother used to refer to private parts as "pookies." So, one day my boyfriend was watching Garfield, and Garfield's bear stuffed animal just happened to be named "Pookie." Considering the fact that he had grown up thinking that "pookie" was a word meant to describe your no no zones he thought it was the most obscene thing he had ever heard.

I was just wondering if anyone else had parental nicknames for private parts, or funny stories having to do with said names?

Quite the opposite - I always used anatomically correct names with my two kids: "vagina" and "penis". So, in pre-school my daughter was about 4, maybe 5 and said to the teacher while in the bathroom "I need toilet paper to wipe my vagina" and one of the other girls yelled "oooh.. she said a bad word!!!!"

I was told about it that afternoon, by a laughing teacher who said most kids are used to silly names like "Cookie" or "hoo haa" and that the 'graphic' descriptor probably upset the other child. I said I wasn't bowing to that nonsense, so if the other parents complain, I hoped the teachers would back me up.

Happily, I never heard another peep about it.

I also always used the correct names with my boys. I just thought it is silly to call it anything else. My husband called their penis other name but they always used correct name. Now that they're in middle school they seem to be more shy about it.

Since I do not have children, my parents did the exact same thing, Victoria. When we went to school, people would use other more derogatory words thinking that those were better than penis and vagina (i.e., cock, dick, pussy, etc.) Those words are derogatory, not the real names of what the anatomy is. My parents never used anything else, and when I started using the word dick frequently, they would scold me and get on my case. HAHA!!!

I have a younger sibling of eight who I refrain from using such words around. She sometimes feels embarrassed to use any words, because she's very innocent and doesn't talk about anything having to do with reproductive organs. But when we do talk about such things, I never use anything derogatory or playful, it's always "penis," "vagina," "breasts."

My parents always referred to genitals as "down there". With my own children, we always refer to them by their correct names, vagina and penis - I hate the cutesy names.

It's funny though - now that my mother has become addicted to Dr. Oz, she actually uses the word "penis". It's so funny to hear her say it!

I completely agree that names should be called with their appropriate names. By adding a special connotation to a word, the children may feel like there is something bad or shameful about the object itself. It's funny, saying that made me think of Harry Potter.

I remember learning the "other" names of "vagin" and "pénis" in school from the other children. School was in French for me. But I would also learn some sexual terms as well. I remember being asked in first grade if I knew what a blow job was, but since the term in French is synonym to a "smoking pipe", I said I did. Go figure why they even knew that term.

Actually, I can't remember my parents ever referring to genitalia by any name, anatomically correct or otherwise, during my childhood. The closest they came was, when I was very small, telling me things like "remember to wipe yourself" or clean "yourself" or don't touch "yourself". It was really rather odd, actually. The way they phrased it meant that the impression was given that it was something you couldn't even give a name to in front of other people, but that it was inextricably a part of yourself.

But still, it was odd.

Isn't it funny that somehow "vagina" is somehow more graphic in describing the same bodypart as "hoo haa"? That child was only upset because someone else told her using the word vagina was bad and naughty. She was taught that the anatomically correct word was bad and that's just so offensive to me.

When will people get that words are only threatening and "bad" because we allow them to have that power?

I had no sisters, but my parents called it different names.. Peter.. wackus.. willy. Things like that. We have a pretty frank approach to sex with our kids, however, and explain things as they are.

I think it's kind of silly that we treat words in general in this fashion.

Example: In school there was a fairly large group we called the Bible Club. I had friends in this club, as I'm not one to judge on such things and have Christian roots in my upbringing anyways. However, I would get dirty looks from said friends for my use of profanity.. I would say 'shit' and they would say 'crap' and I look at them cross-eyed because they mean the same damn thing.

Terry Goodkind illustrated this point in his fiction where one of the characters said 'Bags!' as an expletive. We should form together and make up our own expletives.

My vote is for 'snarf'.

I don't think that just cause two words have the same meaning that they should have the same gravity. Use it important, too.

My mom called mine my "tudor" (spelled phonetically - never exactly saw it written out). Occasionally, this (embarrassingly enough) became "tudor pooter."

I'm using anatomically correct terms with my kids, if I have them.

My penis would often be called 'wee wee'. Oddly enough, it is now called 'hoo hah', and my sister is called 'wee wee'. Make of that what you will.

In the UK, there were a lot of parents I knew who referred to their kids testicles as "stones", so everything from THE "Stones" in music to speaking about a STONE WALL or STONE WALK elicits that same "giggle" response.
