What word did your family use for 'girl bits'? We've got willy and peanuts for the boy, but the girl?


[innocent pic of the kids went here - but it still felt a bit weird having a photo of them online...]

What word did your family use for 'girl bits' when you were a kid?

We've got willy and peanuts for the boy, but the girl?


When I asked this on twitter, I got a load of adult words for girls bits.

Nothing wrong with that, and some of them frankly sound better than the extreme euphemisms used in the family for the female downstairs.

Our family word for it was 'Mary' - which was hilarious to us alone when we got the board game 'Mary' (which, ironically involved putting magnetic clothes on the poor girl).


I've heard other families use 'Moo-Moo' (do 'M' words go well, for some reason?), but what word did your family use for it when you were growing up?

When talking to toddlers about girl bits?

  2. We used 'minnie'. There must be some reason for all the 'm' words!
