PENIS!! and VAGINA!!

This is something of a continuation of my comment on NakedThoughts web blog. Thanks to her i now know what a “pootananny” is. I had heard the word before but never knew what it meant. I personally find the word vajayay stupid and childish myself. Maybe even a little offense in adult conversation. Why? Because last i checked we’re adults. I think we can say the word “VAGINA” without feeling as if we’ve cursed God’s name. Its funny, when was the last time i heard the words “VAGINA” or “PENIS” in any type of conversation? People in my generation will use slang even in polite conversation. Somehow the words PENIS and VAGINA became dirty words and now we prefer not to use them at all! I’m guilty of it too. But i’ve heard full-blown bull dykes balk at using the two words. Like some fear is brought into existence by saying the words.

I think the words VAGINA and PENIS words which invoke sexual arousal in many people, while the slang does not. Much like full frontal female nudity no longer is shocking, but full frontal male nudity is so shocking its verbroten. Just seeing a guy’s naked butt on TV is enough to bring the FCC down on your head. While i’m not advertising for the uncensored views of the naked body on public television (Lord knows we have enough garbage on TV as is) I do think we as a society need to back away from using slang and coming up with stupid words because we just can’t bring ourselves to use scientific terms or we’re afraid of insulting gay or straight people.

I think we’ve come too far as a society to act like uneducated, superstitious primitives when we speak. Although i will admit i think of something kind of funny when i hear such slang. In Britain the word “fanny” is a slang for the word VAGINA, stemming from the bawdy book by John Cleland. Can you imagine the confusion for Americans when they hear this slang. I imagine old British porn must be confusing. With the actress yelling, “fuck my fanny you big dicked bastard! Fuck my hot, nasty fanny!” The American audience must be thinking, “Damn! That male actor is either a newbie, stupid, or blind as a bat! He’s in the wrong hole!”
