That's a great idea!

Re: What to call private parts?

we use Penis and Vagina here, and Breasts are called either Breasts or Boobs or Boos. I plan to teach the difference between Vagina and Vulva here within the next year once she is ready to realize the difference.

I think I heard that on Grey's Anatomy when Bailey had her baby.

I think I am going to use the word privates, because when we taught the kids about touching when I worked in daycare we used "privates" to describe any area that was underneath shorts, not just underware. For my own child I will call it what it is, but use the term privates more generallly just in case I have a boy. I don't like the word vagina either, but I would rather explain what it is now then have her figure the real name much later in life.

Re: What to call private parts?

we try to use the real terms and not anything cutesy, but i also dont like the word 'vagina' for a 5 yr old. So, DS calls his thing a penis, DD's is 'privates' although, when speaking outside of the house, we tend to use 'privates' and we encourage them to do the same. We can figure out from there the general area they are having issues w/ if something should arise. lol

Re: What to call private parts?

We use the actual words as well : vulva, labia, penis and testicles.
I really try not to make a big fuss about it, especially in public .
"Mom ? The mister has a penis because he`s a man, right ?" LOL
Yes dear, you are right, he has a penis because he is a man... in the most casual voice.

Well, if you really want to know "vagina" is a Latin word for a sword sheath. Like what we would call a scabbard.

I also detest the word. When I was little my mom called the vulva a "front-om." Like, "your bottom and your frontom.' I don't know why she didn't just say vulva.

Dh and I call our privates Mr. and Mrs. Whistle. Yes, that is a private joke/long story. So we usually call the boys' penises a penis, but sometimes we slip up and call it a whistle.

I really like the terms yoni and lingum, though.

We use proper names, also. Breasts, vagina, vulva, labia, penis, testicles. No biggy here!
