We've all heard many examples of the terminology - usually of an affectionate nature - that males use to refer to their appendages. I am interested to hear from women about the terms they use. This is a serious enquiry (!) and I hope to put some of the answers to good use in a workshop I'm currently writing in retaliation to one I heard last year at Mary River in the Northern Territory, Australia.
Yours in Unity

Do you think that what women call them is different than what men call them? Or are you presuming that because men seem to have lots of sly nicknames for women's genitals that women recognize but don't use themselves that the reverse is true?

Hmmm. I'll have to think about that one.

We just don't think about them as much as you fellas do. I asked a few women friends,
"What do we call willies?" and they said, "willies".
There are the terms used by mothers of little boys, of course:
ding-dong, (sorry too important for lower case) Ding-Dong, Doodle, Pee-Pee, Diddle-do, Woo-Woo.

The ones I like best come from men - "Winged Avenger" and "Symbol of Manly Pride"
Good luck gecko.
(and in case you're wondering, I've heard the obvious name for my man's one.)
Cheers, Joy

Mother read a book about a British MP, and thereafter called it by the book's title, "The Independent Member".
A group of little girls seeing their baby brother being changed called it the sixth finger.
A friend of mine, as a child, called it a tinklebag.
I have used the term little friend, since it does seem to have a mind of it's own.
And for two years, now, I have been thinking, we're going to war in Iraq to prove once and for all that George W Bush has a bigger do hickey than his father.

When I worked in the Forest Service the guys used to refer to their tally whackers. Their term, not mine.

This reminds me of when a bunch of them drove down to Seattle to go to a topless bar. They came back, all excited and full of stories about the place. There were two women on the crew, and the other one, a bit older and more worldly then I, finally lowered the boom on them.

"Boobs! That's all you can talk about is boobs! I'm sick of hearing about boobs!" They were so surprised by her outburst that they did shut up. They made another trip back a couple of weeks later, but the more mature in the group were willing to admit that the first time was best, that repeated exposure to such places rapidly lost it's charm.

Now what were you asking about what women call pricks?

Courage, as in: "me 'usband's got no courage in 'im"

When I was little, we referred to it as "ding-a-ling" and "weenie"

Well, Karen and I had the conversation regarding what to use for the boys. I can't see the penis crap and she wasn't one to use it either so I asked her what did she call a dick.....and she said "A dick." However she wouldn't agree to using that with the kids as she thought it too crude. Now to me, it just made sense because I'd put money on the most popular street slang being "dick."......and all of you guys named Dick, I apologize, but it is the term of choice!!!

Anyway.......It's a long story, but we decided on "Hoozhee." Don't ask. It worked well but nowadays I have overheard Michael on numerous occasions using "dick." The kid has picked up way too much from his Old Man as I've heard it used as a term of derision as well. I keep meaning ro have a talk with his Dad about it............................

I had a boyfriend once who called it his 'pinkle'. I've never called them anything much (since I find they don't need you to call them by name to respond!), but had to find a term when I had a baby son. I find a lot of the common euphemisms a little distasteful, but settled for 'willie' because it seemed to be what all the little boys around used and it seemed that it would be better for him to be calling it the same thing as his contemporaries.

I suppose we must be odd parents, but we simply called genetalia either "penis" or "vagina" with our kids. Why do people feel the need to dumb down terms or create euphemisms for their children? I have never understood that one, indeed, I find the "naming" of body parts with other names at times to be rather embarrassing.

The first time I heard the expression 'meat and two veg' it was said by a woman. While an old friend of mine's wife said it reminded her of the little plastic bag containing the neck and giblets that are inside a frozen turkey. No I don't know how it got there!

We followed the same policy. It worked perfectly well. I think it is better to start from the right name, and overcome any stupidity about being embarassed because one is endowed with ordinary human equipment. Then you can add nicknames on as a frill if you want to.

We use 'willie', but I've known a 'Cedric' and a 'Percy' (as in pointing Percy at the porcelain). The commonest response though, is to point and laugh.

I think it depends on who it belongs to, and how he uses it.....that is in the intimate way of course......

Otherwise in ordinary conversation...I call it a prick or his tackle.

Ah, but "family jewels" are not the same thing, at least, I always distinguished this as the propulsion unit. (As opposed to the pocket rocket)   :)

NONE of this has to do with what small children call their genetalia, and everything to do with what playful adults engage in.

Concluding line from an article by Richard Rhodes, entitled "What an Odd Organ," in which he details how the penis often does not behave in a manner that the man to whom it is attached wishes it would, e.g. becoming rampant at inappropriate moments or going south when its services are required:

"Having a penis is like owning a cat."
