Vagina rather than vulva? the vagina is inside.

Have you been watching Embarrassing Bodies then?

I would have thought vulva is the same as labia. in any case, I do wish the man who named them could have come up with a better word.

Barnacle and nomenclature- two great words. Why couldn't we have had great words for our genitalia?

SageYourResoluteOracle Tue 21-May-13 23:00:17

Doctor- what seems to be the trouble?
Woman- my barnacle is red and itchy and there's a yeasty discharge seeping from my nomenclature


<it would seem that my iPhone is more intelligent that I am as it used predictive text to spell nomenclature and I know not what it means. . . >

SageYourResoluteOracle Tue 21-May-13 23:03:27

Okay. I googled nomenclature . . . oh the irony!

Now, what was the original AIBU question OP, now that I've finished fannying about?! Sorry, sorry. I think I should probably just go to bed!

It's very annoying, and probably (mis)used by the type of person who confuses their, there and they're.

I need a life new hobby.

I get annoyed when people

Don't put the whole title in the subject field, thereby forcing me to open the thread to see what it's about.

I can't say the word vulva without laughing.

Reminds me of when we used to steal my friends mums "Black Lace" novels. They used terms like vulva alongside phrases such as " velvet pouch"

<misses the point>

I now really want to start a band and call it 'Slippery Velvet Pouch'.

We could go on tour with 'Throbbing Steel Manhood'.

Didn't Black Lace sing Agadoo? Did they also do a line in smutty novels then?

I always wondered what pushing the pineapple was.

ChocsAwayInMyGob Wed 22-May-13 08:57:39

Ezza- tea over keyboard moment!

Agadoo will never be the same for me now.

ChocsAwayInMyGob Wed 22-May-13 08:58:06

ooh yeah baby, touch my barnacle...

VerySmallSqueak Wed 22-May-13 09:00:05

Ezza I think I love you. grin

VerySmallSqueak Wed 22-May-13 09:01:41

I think they're cunts when they call it a vagina tbh.

Pagwatch Wed 22-May-13 09:01:46


Yes . Annoys me too.

I manage to get through great swathes of time without having to say either vagina or vulva. It's great I don't have to fret about my twat vocabulary too often.

ChocsAwayInMyGob Wed 22-May-13 09:04:34

I havr a DH and 2 sons. Nobody ever mentions my nomenclature but we all say "willy" a lot. I feel a bit left out.

SPsCliffingAllOverMN Wed 22-May-13 09:07:06

Doesn't bother me. Vulva is a horrible word though.

Its up there with 'moist' and 'clit' in the list of horrible words.

I tend not to use vagina in everyday conversations so the mix up isn't a worry

ScumbagCollegeDropout Wed 22-May-13 09:14:18

So is this what I am meant to be teaching my children?

kilmuir Wed 22-May-13 10:30:18

Yes, use the right bloody word

ChewingOnLifesGristle Wed 22-May-13 10:37:16

I absolutely cannot get remotely bothered about thisconfused

But the....

thread title thing is annoying.

Meerkatwhiskers Wed 22-May-13 10:51:58

Maybe if everyone from now on teaches their kids that it's called a fanjo we will never have this problem again? Let's change the world people!!

Oh wait! I don't have any kids. Shit. confused
