Subject: What do you call your 'thingie'?
From: Shalom
Date: 07 Jul 03 - 08:48 AM

I am doing research for a series of serious (and humorous) articles on what we call our private parts, our woo-woos, our nookies. This should be fun for 'Catters who usually rise to occasion (good one) for any good posting. Tell what you named your nookies, how the name came about (family tradition?)(culture?)(country?). A lot of couple have pet names for each other's "thingies). Feel free to post photos. But, all seriousness aside...this could be fun. Ari

Jeez, Ari -- is nothing sacred?? :>)

Actually I don't have a name for my thingie, would you believe that? When I was much younger, I called it John Thomas because I thought there was something vaguely literary about imitating Lawrence's game keeper. Ridiculous affectation, since I didn't honestly even know what a game keeper really was!! :>) And I had a girlfriend when I was in my late teens who called it Pegoo, which I thought sounded like a character out of Melville.

Depends who I'm talking to. Formally it's my penis, informally it's my cock or prick, although Lina has been known to refer to it (rather disparagingly I think) as "Little Willie".

It'll be interesting to know if any of our female 'catters (Penelope Rutledge for instance) have names for their genitalia.

Used to work with a woman whose family referred to male thingies as Poochies, and female thingies as Chickens. She didn't know why, the tags had come down through her mom's family for at least three generations. After working with her for many years, and being a sort of aunt to her daughter, I still think of those appelations. Sometimes, I still burst into a braying laugh when an innocent context conjures up the absurd image. "Her chicken had not been adequately plucked," comes to mind.

A sports writer with whom we worked had an annoying habit of constantly (and, I DO mean constantly) adjusting, lifting, moving, feeling, his privates through his clothing. He became known within local media (and police) circles as the "poochie plucker."

"Conch" is one a female friend of my acquaintance used to use, which seemed to me to be perfect, given the symbolism, closeness to another word, and general curl up with a good conch imagery.

when we were small our Mum referred refered to my brother's penis as his "little whistle". Come to think of it now, the reference gives a whole other dimension to the term "whistle blower".

Never used any euphamisms for genitals, male or female, in our adult life in our own family.

From this old thread, What's a Salty Dog?:

My friend and her boyfriend made up a term they could use in public with none the wiser. One day she finally told me what the heck she was talking about when referring to her "twidgett"! Couldn't ya just see the personal ads:

Salty Dog heat-seeks twidgett for his moisture missile! (Thanks for those Jeri!) Or...

Have I got a ding-a-ling for your twidgett! Dial 1-999-Salty Dog. Or...

Fun-loving Twidgett seeks briney canine.


Ya know my ex used to work on old cars and was always talking about the "thrusters" on them, I think that had to do with the engine or exhaust system, can't remember which, probably the carb. Anyway it just occurs to me that might be a good name for my SO's Mr. Willie: Thruster!

As small children, everyone I knew had names for their genitalia, usually something boringly simple like "willie" or "tail" for the boys, but the girls parts got far more exotic names like "fairy", "foo-foo", "tuppence" or "twinkle".
I must confess to having something of a problem using the word "vagina" to my six year-old (I'm not sure why), but equally I can't stand all that "front-bottom/back-bottom" nonsense!
Fortunately it's not a regular topic of conversation at our dinner table (yet).

I've just finished my second year of 'nightclass' Spanish so my best friend bought me a book of 'naughty' Spanish. There is a whole section devoted to names for body parts - 115 for the male member alone!
These range from the obvious weapons, dagger, club, mallet, sledge hammer,crusher etc. to various vegetables, eggplant, cucumber, corn on the cob etc even a baby's bottle but my favourite is COSITA (lit) little thing (brings us back full circle to thingy)

The Irish language word for penis is 'bod' - rhymns with 'Bud' the beer. So since Budweiser entered the market here some years back, you have people going up to the bar and asking for a 'penis' or 'penises'. Though I think Bud tastes more like the liquid that is discharged from the 'Bod' after lowering a few pints.

If women wish to refer to their complete genitalia by the word "vagina", then they shouldn't make jokes like:
"What's the difference between a Clitoris and the nearest pub ?"
(Answer: Men never have a problem finding the nearest pub).

If you wish to be clinical, "vulva" is a much more accurate term, although I prefer to use the word "pussie" (furry and nice to stroke).

I've been a naturist for years and many times I've been asked questions like "Do the women show their vaginas ?" - and I have to point out that a woman would have to be in a very specific type of position to do that.

BTW - why is the simple Anglo-Saxon term "cunt" thought to be so disgusting ? - it is used quite casually (and unselfconciously) in much prose from the period.

Although the subject matter is clearly not musical in nature, I think it would be quite accurate to put it under the heading of Folklore. The words people have used to refer to these body parts has evolved considerably over the centuries as was pointed out in a previous post.

But if you insist on a musical tie, My Mistress' Cunny should inject a "proper" musical note to the thread.

In theatrical circles(which I frequent from time to time) conversations often turns to stories about John Geilgud, generally based on his legendary forgetfulness and total lack of self censorship when talking.
   Anyway, a good one I heard concerned Sir John arriving at a dinner party with his latest leather-jacketed bit of rough in tow. Gielgud meticulously introduced him to everyone"Larry, this is Rufus, Ralph this is Rufus etc etc" (OK I may be improving the story a bit with extra distinguished guests). Anyway, the young man seemed to be getting more and more embarrassed, and eventually mumbled an apology and vanished to go to the loo. At this point, Geilgud said "Oh dear, silly, silly me. I've just remembered Rufus isnt his name at all; that's what I call his cock".

When I was introduced into the mysteries of love by a quite older and very experienced lady, she unfortunately didn't use a language as shameless as her behaviour. She insisted that I called hers "Lady Jane". So I chose for mine "Major Tom", and told her: You also may sir him.
Otherwise I use the usual dialect terms of my county to desribe the parts in question.

Interesting observations when with the peasants over here:
"Let's hang our sprinkle-tools together"
"Let's hide a sausage"

Another observation: A comrade had the nickname Bubi (little lad). When American soldiers heard him called so, they started a big laugh, understanding Boobie. The laugh was even bigger when I was called with the usual abbreviation of my name: Willie. At first we didn't understand their hilarity. So please call me Bill, Will, or anything else, but never Willie.

THANK YOU for pointing out the distinction between "vulva" (or "pussy) and "vagina" (something hardly anyone but the gynecologist ever SEES)! Playboy centerfolds often show their labia (majora and majora), their vulvas (sometimes even their Volvos) -- yeah, their pussies, but I have yet to see one of their vaginas! ;-)

OK, so some of you want musical relevance?

He was a bit immature, and found women so terrifying that he was barely able to look directly at them or speak to them, despite inwardly desiring them, but he assured us that Little Wally was simply gigantic when aroused. Uh-huh. Usual story. The problem was that the female half of the population never got to offer any testimonials about it at all. Sad, really. That was back in the early 70's.

From the philologue's point of view, this is one of the most interesting threads I have encountered so far.
I very much appreciate the last contribution with the expression from NZ. I had some difficulties (as a non native speaker) to decipher the slew and did a long search through online dictionaries. Which of the following entries does give the meaning intended?

slough 1 also slew (sl) n.
1. A depression or hollow, usually filled with deep mud or mire.
2. also slue A stagnant swamp, marsh, bog, or pond, especially as part
   of a bayou, inlet, or backwater.
3. A state of deep despair or moral degradation.

slough 2 n.
1. The dead outer skin shed by a reptile or amphibian.
2. Medicine. A layer or mass of dead tissue separated from surrounding
   living tissue, as in a wound, sore, or inflammation.
3. An outer layer or covering that is shed.


BTW. some 30 years ago Peter Rühmkorff wrote a book Über das Volksvermögen (ambiguous: About the People's Property Assets / the People's Ability), where he collected and discussed a lot of bawdy folk songs and verses, partially concerned with the theme threaded here. Awfully funny, indeed.

Wilfried...I think the term slew is a variation of the word "sluice".
Play with that one (pun intended).

Do ladies still use the term "quim" for their private sector...

Counting the number who've posted several times here with sophomoric jokes is quite sad when you consinder that there are so many other worthwhile topics with less than twenty responses. It is simply no wonder that "Everybody Loves Raymond is so popular". Your turn.

Is there any relationship between 'podger' and 'bodger' - one who makes 'turned' pieces (struts, chair legs etc.) from green wood?

Podger -

Could be named in honour of a certain Mr. Podger who is a bird fancier ...

but more likely called after a certain tool made by a certain company with a very suggestive name.

Trust the limeys to come up with a word like podger -- at least, I've never heard it before. But it really sounds like something that would be invented in the UK. Does anyone know the provenance of it?

Dear sad Guest,

shame, shame on me - but what can you expect from such a bunch including bicoloured rabbits, laughing cats and a walrus?
By the way, I'm a drummer, and we always love to bang happily away. (Sometimes even to the sound of fifes. Fife, or flute, another word in my home country for the male thingie: they are so nice to handle.)

As for quim... well, I can't listen to 'the lion sleeps tonight' since I heard it done by a very correct looking trio, one of whom insisted on singing 'quim away', which brought forth a whole slew of rude images and naughty pictures......

My houseful of brothers referred to the lone female's parts as her "bitsy-body."
A patient once came to my (gyn) office complaining of "Bumps on my cha-cha."
Musical: Have you never heard of playing the pink piccolo? Nor been admonished to keep it clean as a whistle or it won't get blown?
A personal favorite song bit that is hard to keep a straight face through is "Brennan on the Moor" which includes lines like "when Willie he went down" and "When she saw her Willie she began to weep and cry."
And Saki (H. H. Munro) has a male character, interrupted in his bath by his mother of all people who asks "What are you doing?" that he is washing "From my neck to my merrythought, and from my merrythought to my..."   I do admire the term merrythought.
