What Did You Call It?

I am so glad that the New York Times started making their articles free. Without them, I wouldn't have stumbled upon this delightful little gem, "What Did You Call It?" about acceptable words for a woman's private parts. In my opinion "down there" always sounded like a bad After School Special and the word my husband and I currently use is the same as the first name of the mechanic on the old "Dukes of Hazzard".

Which really demonstrates, as the article details, that there is a vacuum in popular discourse showing a need for a word for female genitalia that is not clinical, crude, coy, misogynistic or descriptive of a vagina from a man’s point of view.
