59 Unfortunate Nicknames for Female Anatomy That Should Be Retired

Female anatomy nicknames that sound worse than their actual names.

Don’t get me wrong, female anatomy nicknames have their place: when you’re around little kids, insulting someone, telling a funny story or calling your grandma. But to use euphemisms because you’re uncomfortable saying vagina, breasts or period? Sigh.

For me, the conundrum lies not so much in being uncomfortable using the actual terms, but in not knowing what someone’s reaction might be to me saying them. I don’t want to offend anyone or trivialize how they feel about the subject—after all, it’s their right to feel how they feel—but I don’t want to be censored either. It’s a viscous cycle.

I have no idea why we use smoke and mirrors to talk about female anatomy. We’re better than that. We should be able to say “vagina” without blushing or mumbling or changing the subject at lightning speed. We spend so much time thinking of “user friendly” names in conversation it’s exhausting—meanwhile, most of the nicknames sound more offensive than the actual names, amiright?

I’m not saying shout about your period from the rooftops or anything, but let’s ditch that ginormous cloud of discomfort looming over our heads. We have vaginas. We have breasts (or in my case, try to look like we do). We get our periods. So when any of these topics come up, talk about them just like you would anything else (you know, without getting all creepy sex-ed teacher about it).

Here, 59 nicknames for vagina, breasts and period we should consider putting out to pasture:
