Re: What to call private parts?
Yeah, that. Annoys me when women talk about their vagina, but you know they mean vulva. For example, a radio host was talking about getting the hair "on her vagina" removed by electrolicis. I was thinking, "Wow! She has a hairy vagina?".

The correct medical term for the entire area, btw, is vulva.
BTW- we call ds's privates his "baby bits" when we don't use the medical names. But he's too young to care yet.
Personally, I like va-jay-jay. Can't remember where I heard it first, but it cracks me up.
We call DS's stuff his 'parts' or his 'bits', or we call them by the proper name. My 12 year old stepson nearly has a stroke when we talk about penises and scrotums and anuses (if DS has a rash and DH and I are talking about where it is) so we have all had to start acting like juveniles and calling them his bits (penis and testicles) or his tookey (his bottom and anus).
Mom to one cool dude...honest.
