Channeling Eve Ensler

The Fidgeco. Pronounced; "fige-ee-ko"

That's the name my Grandma Driscoll, God rest her soul, used when she referred to the female genital area. The word still cracks me up. It's not the name we in the family used regularly, for it was Grandma Driscoll's name alone. "Shut that door! The draft is going come in and go right up my dress to my Fidgeco!," she used to say. We still laugh about it today.

In our house we used a somewhat Italian form of the name, which I'm sure got butchered somewhere in translation; Pishaliti. Prounounced; "pee-sha-lee-tee". Nonetheless, it was our special name for the vajay and we were never shy about using it.

"MOM, Chris is throwing rocks at me and trying to hit me in the Pishaliti!" or

"OW! Watch it jerk, that just hit me right in the Pishaliti!"

I'm sure everyone has their own version of a name for the all mighty vagina. Eve Ensler wrote an off-Brodway play called "The Vagina Monologues" where she celebrated the various names for the vajay, the theme throughout the piece,"is the vagina as a tool of female empowerment." I saw the show in Boston with Ensler as the monologist a few years ago, and was amazed, entertained and awed at the power of Monologues message. In 1998, Ensler formed V-Day, which has raised over $50 million to benefit women's anti violence groups from The Vagina Monologues.

I am embarassed to admit, although the show's powerful message was not lost on me, for the naughty little child that resides within me, the most entertaining and memorable came when she lists the many names for the vagina.

These are just a few.

Panty Hampster
Tuna Taco or Pink Taco
Fur Burger
Bearded Clam
Love Canal
Harry Twatter
Hairy Potter
Hair Pie
Camel Toe
Who Who
Lady Garden
Hairy Mairy
The snack that smiles back
Sausage wallet
Vertical Smile
Notorious V. A. G.
Furry Goblet
Love Canal

So please, do share here your special vagina names, so that naughty little child in all of us can live, if just for a day.

Lately, I've been calling it The Holy Grail. Because although I'm told it does exist. I sure as Hell can't find it. I can't even get a sniff of it.

And being a greaseball myself, I've heard pishaliti a couple of times.

Tunnel of Love !!!

That photo cracked me up, because it's sad, but true.

I remember the old joke about the little boy that pulls out his wein in front of a little girl and says "I've got this, and you DON'T !"

The little girl pulls down her pants and says "As long as I've got THIS, I can ALWAYS get what you have !"

James Woe said...

reminds me of the old truism-'why did god give women vaginas? men would talk to them."

Scandalous Housewife said...

I like to say cootchie: Hey, that skirt barely covers my cootchie! But I've heard fur burger, although it might not be applicable for the "Brazilian" types...

SkylersDad said...

Is it me or are Italians just crazier that the rest of the people in the world?

My wife's family is very Italian (her mom is first generation born in America), and this kind of stuff goes on all the time when we visit.

Always makes visiting the inlaws interesting though. :)

"South of the Border"

I have no idea why.

But I've learned some new one days today, that's for sure.

Word verification is "Hambonc" - maybe that's my new word for Vagina?

That picture is so funny and sooo true! Putter...don't ask me why!

Slyde said...

well, i thought i had heard them all, but furry goblet has cut me to the quick...

Sassy Britches said...

One of my friend's grandmothers would always call it a "Possible," because, you know, "It's possible!"

Soda and Candy said...

Aussies call it the map of Tassie, b/c it looks like the Australian island state of Tasmania.

But then something tells me you may have heard that one before... somewhere.

; )

words...words...words... said...

The Notorious V.A.G. is killing me. Well done!

BeckEye said...

I'm a little embarassed to admit that I've heard of all of those names, except for the Notorious V.A.G. and Furry Goblet. A while back, I got on a kick of calling it my "Life." Like, when I'm lying on the couch and the dog jumps up and his paw lands right there, i'm like, "Dammit, you got me right in the Life!"

Pork Sword said...

cunt (DUH), pussy (DUH), cooter, stench trench, fuckhole, beartrap, poontang, poon, honey pot....

Gwen said...

Do you know why they call it a hooha? Cuz when you touch it you say, "Hoo!" and then "Ahhhh."

"Little man in a canoe" always cracks me up.

Ax Wound

Scope said...

Today, for some reason, I'm thinking "slice of heaven" is a good name for it! :-)

~E said...

some of those names just made me regret having one in the first place.

In my house growing up, we referred to it as a pecpec.

Joanie M said...

Go ahead and shoot me. I tagged you with a meme on my blog.

Furtheron said...

Fanny is popular in England but confusing for USA visitors... :-)

Great picture

chop and go said...

I looked at the list again and found 'va-jay-jay' that's my favorite. I also like 'sweet lips' and 'furplace'like 'put a log in the furplace.'
