Whoopi Goldberg refers to hers as a Punany, six-year old Kate calls hers tata, Annie cheekily calls hers her va jay jay, Steve calls mine a Punkie and Dufie calls hers a pussy.
I don’t have a name for mine. Why? because I tend to only refer to it in a sexual context. Either I am telling someone to do something to it or with it…and in that instance I call it whatever they call it.
As an 18 year old College student watching the Vagina monologues, I was moved to tears. The stories of the liberated women in the vagina monologues were confrontational, reflective, challenging and beautiful. The only relationship I had with my virginal ____ (insert whatever you want to call it J ) was a tolerating one. After all, periods were no fun and as a tom boy I hated the monthly reminder that I was a girl. All women have a relationship with their vagina, and good or bad this relationship influences their attitudes towards sex, their sexuality, their self-image and even their self-esteem.
With mine, the relationship has improved greatly but the dear thing still doesn’t have a name. . Vagina is too clinical and yet none of the other words fit. They are either too derogatory, remind me too much of porn movies or are just silly *Ahem Woman flower*. What do you call yours? And how do you relate to it? Are you friends? Enemies? or flat mates?
