In my youth, I used to meet my Mother in the local ladies' salon on the odd occasion. Once I was old enough to understand the conversation, I was shocked - my Mother certainly didn't talk about such things... and I'm not sure whether the conversation was toned up or down for my benefit...

In my adult life, however, the most frequent comment has probably been - "not that...again!"

I recall seeing a televised debate years ago from a rather austere English university which I cannot now name. Germaine Greer was debating a panel and at one point said something to the effect of : Little Suzy finds out at the age of five that little boys can simply stand and pee at the edge of the woods while on family outings in the country... at that moment, from the gallery, a voice asked, "Is that why they call them picknickers then ?"

I've just come back from up north and while up there I met one of my sons and his wife as I was walking along the main street of a small town. Forgot they were there!!! I was delighted and sat down with them. They looked beautiful, particularly radiant, and I said so. They advised me that they had just had wonderful news. They were expecting their third child - 7 weeks pregnant. They already have the just turned two year old, and the just turned one year old, both boys. I said, "jeez, you don't waste time" and my daughter in law said "Nah, I don't but it's his old bloke that's been extra busy". Another daughter in law has just had her third girl, all pretty close together. She said, "His loaded gun don't waste time and don't shoot blanks". What can you say? So there you go, Old Bloke and Loaded Gun.

Well, I've heard some pretty lusty, raunchy conversations among women, I'll tell you. I do agree with some of the other gals on here: there seems to be a different quality about the discussion, at least compared to what I *think* men talk about.

As far as I know, I think of men discussing cup size, penis size, and other specific aspects of the body.

Women, in my experience, tend to discuss concepts more than parts, as in: "I just bet I know what you were doing." It seems to me that even though the discussion is very suggestive, there's still some room for the imagination to fill in the blanks (which probably makes such a conversation even more graphic).

I really haven't heard many alternative terms for penis. dick, cock, willie,all the usual names.

I really wish I could help, gecko, but I'm nearly 60. (can't be true!) and I just can't.
I was brought up in a working-class suburb, worked as a nurse, sang in pubs and classy restaurants, rode the Greyhound for a couple of months in America. Been in a lot of "powder rooms" "Dunnyies" and the like and got involved in lots of conversations with friends and strangers. Willies have come up, if you'll excuse the pun, at times, but I don't recall any particular names we used. Womens' private conversations can be as colourful and creative as those among men, I think, but they just doesn't seem to go in the same direction. This runs to the singing of bawdy songs as well. That's much more apparent among males.
Wish I could help. Sorry. Cheers, Joy

well, gecko...I suspect that there are many differences in what women say privately to other women. It no doubt depends on their social class, as well as how well they are acquainted and what MOOD they are in when the subject 'arises'. In the last analysis, most of the common terms no doubt get used, just as between men.

OK Mrzzy - "My fave of the Monty Python litany was the One-Eyed Trouser Snake."

I've got a little animal, I suppose you'd call it a pet
But if there's something wrong with it, I don't have to call the vet.
He goes everywhere that I go, whether sleeping or awake -
God help me if I ever lost my one eyed trouser snake!

Jeez perhaps I've lived a sheltered life, but it seems unlikely. Talk between females in pairs or groups can on occasion get just as over the top sometimes as "the mens", but I haven't noticed too much gender difference as to euphemisms, except perhaps less references as to some kind of weapon, but maybe I wasn't paying much attention. The whole tends to be discussed, with no particular obsession on the parts.

Years ago, before graduate school, back when I had little time to do anything but laundry and change diapers, trashy romance novels were light-weight enough to read but not greive over if you didn't get to finish them. Now the writers of those bits of yellow "literature" found some pretty silly euphemisms for penis. I don't think they ever actually wrote the word. "Manhood" was a common one. It has been about 15 years since I read many of those, so changing times may have changed the euphemisms. But I'd be willing to bet they're still practicing poetic license in naming body parts.

What a great response, especially from the blokes! What I'm really looking for are the names or terms that women use when they talk to each other. I'm not sure that men would know what these are or even be aware that women could possibly view male 'bits and pieces' with less affection and pride that they do themselves. So, sisters, take a deep breath and PM me if you don't want your cover blown!
Here are a few to get you going: 'nudger' - and what woman hasn't been 'nudged' awake at some ungodly hour; 'It' - as in "and then he got 'it' out; 'whatsit' - as in "he's always got his 'whatsit' in his hand".

I think that Mellor's appendage was also referred to as "Droopy Ned" at the end of Lady Chatterley. I don't have a copy any more, but I think the last line is something about Droopy Ned wishing Lady Jane good night. Where is Peter T when we need him?
We use the terms penis and vagina with our childen too. We have no embarrassment and neither do they. I don't see anything wrong with referring to them in joky terms as well though. Plenty of our language has no colour at all.
I am a little baffled though why we should need a euphemism for any part of the body. I can't think of any body part which I would want to lose(although I don't miss my appendix much, I confess).

I had a friend in my 20's, a guy who was so shy of woman that he could barely speak in their presence. He used to boast loudly to the other guys about his penis, however, when women were not around, and he referred to it as "Little Wally". This occasioned a lot of amusement among the rest of us, given the fact that "Litte Wally" had clearly never been let out of the stall, let alone been put through his paces on the track itself.

Well, here are some cultural terms, not necessarily euphemisms, but maybe:

From England - John Thomas (penis) Lady Jane (vagina) D.H. Lawrence, just to be outrageous, titled a novel of his "John Thomas and Lady Jane". It was the first draft of "Lady Chatterley's Lover" and is said to be actually a better book than the more famous one. I read both back in my early 20's, and I think JT & LJ is the better of the two.

From China - Jade Stem (penis), Turtle Head (penis), and numerous other poetic terms. These are from the taoist tradition. They saw sex not as a moral matter, but a health matter, and they were quite correct, in fact. Jade Gate was the vagina, which had, again, many other poetically descriptive names.

Common American slang - whanger, tool

Not hard to see how American civilization rates when you compare it to Taoism... :-)

Here in Aus, in the 1950s, little coctail frankfurts were always called "little boys". Might still be for all I know. It became so familiar as a title that there are all sorts of stories about women asking for them by that name and nobody laughing.

My brother was named "John Thomas". What were they thinking? Not as bad as the "Richard Head" I knew though.
