I want to start with a quote from my favourite book "The Vagina Monologues" by Eve Ensler.
Let's start with the word "vagina". It sounds like an infection at best, maybe a medical instrument: "Hurry Nurse, bring me the vagina". Vagina. Vagina. Doesn't matter how many times you say it, it never sounds like a word you want to say. it's a toatlly ridiculous, compeltely unsexy word. If you use it during sex, trying to be politically correct - "Darling, could you stroke my vagina?" you kill the act right there.
I like the word Vulva. Vagina is rather clinical and it also refers to the canal and not the "whole part".
Pussy is not bad. Here follows a whole list of names (complete from Vagina Monologues):
Powderbox, derriere, poochi, poopi, peepe, poopelu, poonani, pal, piche, toadie, dee dee, nishi, dignity, monkey box, coochi snorcher, cooter, labbe, VA, wee wee, nappy dugout, fanny, etc, etc.
In Bloemfontein the call her a "Roos", in Pretoria a "Blom", in Sandton a "Marigold" and in Soweto "Ekuku".
