I don't really think my mother often referred to lady bits by any specific name. My grandmother had some colourful name for it that I just don't remember. My aunt had the oddest one though. 'Bug' I have no idea why she chose that term and I always thought it was stupid.

I will be little help to you - I have a boy and I delight in making him giggle every time I say 'penis'. Smile

My family called it a "crotch" - like a tree. Actually, they called the whole pelvic area that (for both sexes, I think), but I don't recall them ever being more specific.

When talking to other people's children (though it hasn't come up very often, thank god): private parts.

When talking to mine: penis or willy for a boy, fanny or vagina for a girl.

(Don't americans use "fanny" for bum, come to think of it? Here I'd only use it to refer to the front, not the back.)

I think "fanny" is a pretty outdated term over here. Unless you're referring to a fanny-pack, which has nothing to do with anatomy and everything to do with looking ridiculous.

I think my mom used "peepee" to refer to both boy and girl parts when we were little. I don't remember it ever coming up with any of my relatives, though.

ETA: Oh right, I also had a question. My cats have never had a problem with hairballs in the entire two years we've had them until the last month or so. Now it seems like they're hacking them up every couple of days.

Is it worth having them shaved, or should I just keep cleaning up? I haven't had much luck getting them to teach the hairball-control treats or dry food. I wouldn't mind so much except they've developed the habit of hacking them up in the middle of the night on the bed.

Yeah hence my mirth as a kid watching "The Nanny" theme tune bit, as they kick here out on her "fanny" I always wondered how you could land on your fanny that would sting!

I think my mum used privates

Usually girl parts/ boy parts. The 5 year old has heard the actual words, I believe, but asking, "Did you wash your girl parts?" is a lot shorter than listing all of 'em!

Actually, "crotch" was the word used in my home when growing up, but "koosh' and "ding-ding" sound better!

Admittedly I have been known to call it a ding dong or ping ping(Tagalog). Male parts are called the junk, ie "Hey don't throw that, you'll hit Leo in the junk."

In Finnish, I call it with a neutral spoken language word we have for vulva/vagina (curiously, it's phonetically similar to ping ping which Nemo mentioned). In Flemish the whole question turned out to be a bit trickier, because Mr Tis comes from a conservative, repressed environment where THESE THINGS WERE NOT DISCUSSED. Se the only terminology he knew was either weirdly clinical or rather lurid.

Mr Tis even phoned his older sister to ask if there was a neutral word she used with her kids, but it turned out she basically mostly just relied on the family tradition of never really mentioning it, or in a pinch resorting to some vague "down there" type of expression, which was precisely what we didn't want to do. So finally Mr. Tis chose a word which according to my dictionary translates to more or less "little crevice", and at other times he just says vagina.

Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn't here.
