  • what many women call Aunt Flo, my friends and I always called Mindy. there does seem to be a tendency for personification in these matters. 'a woman's Sophia' sounds pretty dignified, though I cannot help imagining, hearing "Little Clarissa in a boat", Gorey's The Hapless Child. It lends disturbing dimensions to the...process.

  • I would be okay with a little clarissa in a boat. I guess.

  • The other day I read in Fair of Speech, a study of euphemism (ed. D.J. Enright), that the sexual use of 'fanny' might have arisen from familiarity with Fanny Hill (though the OED only knows it in print from 1879). The writer then went on to comment that, however, 'as far as I know, nobody has ever spoken of a woman's clarissa, or sophia.'

    And I thought, but 'clarissa' is perfect for it!

  • Talking testicles probably weren't high on my reading-list for today, but ...

  • Holy cow, madmouth! Sheik Nefzaoui is like a gentle Marquis De Sade. I just hope I can keep a strait face next time I do my husband and not be too distracted thinking about this colorful excerpt.

  • Anthromorphicization of the bits has a long literary tradition. Consider this excerpt from Sheik Nefzaoui's Perfumed Garden (I forget which translation), the chapter concerning the sundry names given to the sexual organs of women:

    'El Mokabeul (ever ready for the fray)

    ... This is the vulva which is not shocked, nor does it blush as the others do, when the vestments are lifted up that cover it; which, on the contrary, makes the member heartily welcome, lets it repose upon its vaulted dome, and introduces it into its core as if to swallow it entirely; so far, indeed, that the testicles are crying out, "Oh, what a misfortune! Our brother has disappeared! We are uneasy about him, for he has boldly thrown himself into that abyss! He must certainly be foolhardy to penetrate like a dragon into such a cavern!" The vulva hearing those lamentations, and desirous to dispel their chagrin, tells them, "Have no fear about this, he is alive, and his ears hear your words." Upon which they reply, "If what you say is true, O master of the beautiful countenance, let him come out, that we may see him." The vulva then says, "I shall not let him come out living; not till death has struck him down." The two testicles implore then, "What sin has he committed, that he should pay for it with his life?" The vagina, "By the existence of him who created the heavens, there is no way out of me until he is dead!" Then addressing the member, "Do you hear the words of your two brothers? Hasten to show yourself to them, for your absence has plunged them into a great afliction!" After the ejaculation, the member returns to them reduced to nothing and like a shadow; but they do not know him, saying, "Who are you, you wonder of leanness?" "I am your brother, and have been ill," says the member; "did you not see in what state I was when I entered. I have knocked at the door of all the physicians to get advice. But what prime physician have I found here! He has treated my complaint, and cured it without either auscultation or examination!" The two testicles answer, "O brother of ours, we suffer the same as you, for we are as one with you. Why did not God allot us the same cure?" Fortwith the sperm fills them and augments their volume. They then wish for the same treatment, saying "Oh, hasten to take us to the same physician, that he may cure our illness, for he konws all maladies!"

    Here terminates the conversation of the two testicles with the member about its disappearance, which made them fear that he might have fallen into a silo or pit.'

  • How about "little gland in a coat," which is both gender neutral, and avoids anthropomorphizication. Or maybe moat?

    June 16, 2009

  • Ha! You mean pleasuroids (euvocalic, too!) and sexorium, madders!

    June 16, 2009

  • he's responsible for ferrying the pleasuroids to the sexorium.

    June 16, 2009

  • Hahahahaha.

  • *speechless*

  • I think I will go on my whole life confusing between palooka and plethora. No way. Sorry!

    June 22, 2008

  • Whew! I'm certain you could've made mincemeat out of me c_b. I'd rather face Mike Tyson than an irate woman.

    Of course, you'll have nothing to tweak I'm afraid.

    June 22, 2008

  • Actually, I kind of like the idea of a foo fairy in a hoodie. At least that's non-gender-specific—and doesn't involve boats.

    (When I think of boats, I think of ouchy pointy wooden things. Ouch.)

    Palooka: no bruising intended. But someday I might tweak your nipples—theoretically, of course. ;)

    June 22, 2008

  • I guess you don't have a little man in a boat c_b. Absolutely positively not. Please don't beat me up - I bruise easily.

    June 22, 2008

  • Oh, foo fairy in a hoodie then? The mister and me are going to have a good one over that tonight!

    June 22, 2008

  • Orright, orright, no man in boat. But what is it then? Glabrous foo fairy in a hoodie?

    June 22, 2008

  • Palooka: Bullshit.

    Signed,

    A woman who has neither a boat nor a little man in her pants.

    June 22, 2008

  • Oh, HAR! I just love man humor! It's so easy on the brain! ;-)

    June 22, 2008

  • Well, maybe not a generic boat dc - more like a pleasure craft. And I don't have a little man, but I was given the shaft - but I'm not complaining.

    June 22, 2008

  • If the question is "are you a woman, palooka?" I discovered the truth a few hours ago. :-)

    June 22, 2008

  • Easy for you to say palooka -- you dont have a little man AND a boat in your pants...do you?

    June 21, 2008

  • If men have nipples, women have little men in boats - it's evolutionary justice c_b.

    June 21, 2008

  • I refuse to believe that anything to do with my clitoris looks like a man. Why isn't it a woman in a boat? What the hell?!

    June 21, 2008

  • another euphemism for clitoris.

    Because the head of the clitoris with surrounding tissue looks like a man in a boat.

    If you want your woman to be happy, you have to talk to the man in the boat.
