Have we done people who refer to a vulva as a vagina?

It was on Radio One earlier, someone who is unhappy with her external appearance is having surgery on her vagina. It drives me way more crazy than it should but really, it's basic anatomy. You can't have a labioplasty on your vagina. hmm

It has been mentioned from time to time on MN smile

Well, maybe you could, if you wanted labia attached to your vagina.

I hate this too, but it's a battle (like many in this godforsaken corner) that has long since been lost.

I'm off to help Napoleon at Waterloo instead ...

I think for the pedant, it shoudl technically be termed a 'foof'

Foof is a bit too much like 'lulu' or 'foofoo' or whatever the angora-wearers call it.

Foof? hmm

I'm not sold.

Anyway, as long as it has been mentioned at some point, and hasn't escaped the eagle-eyes of the pedants, I'm happy. Or placated, at least.

I think we've established fanjo as the word of choice haven't we?

I want to know if the plural of fanjo is fanjos or fanjoes.

Or fanji.

Vulva is all the external bits - vulva + vagina is everything.

Someone else who agrees with me at last.

Especially when dcs are taught the "correct terms" at school and come back with vagina and penis. Sigh.
