Euphemisms

cryinglightning86 cryinglightning86
For the most part, I tend to be against euphemisms for my anatomy. I prefer to call my vulva my vulva, my vagina my vagina, my clitoris my clitoris, and so on. However, I've found that using the actual terminology oftentimes makes other people uncomfortable.

Why do you think this is? Do you tend to use euphemisms? If so, why? If not, why not?

I use the correct terminology when speaking of my genitals in general. But if I am talking dirty to my husband I use all sorts of euphemisms. I don't "flower" it up, tho, unless I'm speaking to someone more sensitive to words, then I'll use terms like "lady bits."

It depends on who I'm talking to...

If I'm having a conversation with someone about genitals, I'll use the proper terminology. If I'm in the bedroom with my partner talking dirty, then I'll use a euphemism. We even, just for kicks, sometimes try to come up with ridiculous or cringe-worthy euphemisms for genitalia.

because people are not used to it and beet around the bush. Also they may not to what you are talking about because they are use to the nickname.

I use medical terms exclusively. Most euphemisms gross me out or sound weird to me.

I switch depending on who I'm talking to and how comfortable I am. If I'm less comfortable talking to someone about intimate anatomy I'll be vague. If I need to get to the point I'll be direct and use proper terminology. I more often use euphemisms though. I don't like using proper terminology much, but that actually is true for more than just genitals. I am a vague and indecisive person when speaking. It's hard for me to be direct and assertive so I tend to use less assertive and direct language.
