AIBU to intensely dislike the word "cum" for orgasm?

I don't know why but just reading the word in that spelling makes me actually shudder!

Why isn't it just spelled properly? I don't even get bothered by the "c***" word that makes some people gasp in horror, but this teensy 3 letter word makes my eyeballs want to melt.

Surely there must be an alternative?

It means sperm doesn't it?
Or it did in my yoof

cjbartlett Tue 06-Sep-11 06:36:52

But yabu for using it in a thread title at 6.30am. I nearly lost my breakfast :/

msshapelybottom Tue 06-Sep-11 06:37:24

Really? Christ, it has multiple meanings!

Women say it too though don't they?

I still hate it!

msshapelybottom Tue 06-Sep-11 06:37:55

sorry about that. YABU for having breakfast this early grin

Totally agree Msshapelybottom. Awful word, awful spelling for it. I dislike the use of the word "head" too for that other bit (cough, cough) down below -use that in the wrong circumstances and you have a real comedy of errorsgrin

hate it in terms of using for a woman.

I can't stand it

TheMagnificentBathykolpian Tue 06-Sep-11 07:29:24

I hate it too. Makes me cringe. It's just nasty.

Whatmeworry Tue 06-Sep-11 07:33:27

So a better word would be......?

pinkytheshrinky Tue 06-Sep-11 07:35:33

yes very cringey I hate it too

msshapelybottom Tue 06-Sep-11 07:37:15

whatmeworry, it's not the word for me, it's the spelling.

In my head it's spelled "come" but cum just makes me feel like having a wash!

Well - [baffled] what's wrong with the word 'orgasm'? It's a perfectly fine word and doesn't have cringy 1970s porn feel about it. grin

YANBU. It's yukky and makes me squirm. It was an americanism when I was young, but seems to be well-entrenched here now. Also, it was a term used almost entirely by men, which made me automatically suspicious of it, so I'm a bit uncomfortable about women using it.

SuePurblybilt Tue 06-Sep-11 07:59:13

Hate it, in fact I wanted to post this after the orgasm thread but couldn't be arsed. So thank you grin

It's nasty. 'come' is OK, 'orgasm' is fine. Spunk or whatever slang word for the man's contribution - none of it worries me. But I hate the spelling 'cum', it makes me feel sleazy and a bit thick just to read it.

misty0 Tue 06-Sep-11 08:00:29

Yes! Yes! Yes!

I agree grin

Orgasm is so clinical though. 'cum' is awful. In my mind the word 'come' is to ejaculate for a bloke. Why cant we have our own word?

What could it be?

Whatmeworry Tue 06-Sep-11 08:05:45

Nix Orgasm....One inserts a penis into a vagina until orgasm and ejaculation occur.

Cock, cunt, come and cum are attractively alliterative.....

RoxyRobin Tue 06-Sep-11 08:06:17

Melt?

PfftTheMagicDraco Tue 06-Sep-11 08:13:28

Well, it is vile. But "cum" is ejaculate. "Come" is orgasm.

Butterfly75 Tue 06-Sep-11 08:30:52

i really hate it when i get text messages from people i support at work asking what time i'm cumming round or can i cum round a bit later. it gives me the shivers.

So a better word would be..........how about climax?
