As I kid my family would use 'schwanz', 'schmock' (u.s. 'shmuck') and 'potz' (u.s. 'putz') -- all of which have now become pejorative terms for people, but were simply slang for male and female sex organs.


I like cats, so I like 'pussy'. Its nice, and it's furry - I'm as much a fan of shaved pussies as I am of Sphynx cats.

Hi folks.
Been lurking and downloading for a while; today I registered and here's my first upload and thus first post. Apologies in advance if I get anything wrong: any vB coding, tags, buttons, whatever.

I've given the previous pages on this thread a bit of a read so included are a number of responses.

I haven't submitted any stories in Literotica yet, but have been working on a few. As they are third person, like the quote above, I use the techical terms as narrator and the characters likely use the colloquial:

"He place a hand on her left buttock: 'You gotta nice ass.'"

"Pussy" is a bit old and more for insults, politics, and cat jokes: "she stroked her pussy," "she had a nice pussy," and "that lion is a real big pussy."

"Cunt" is more like a putdown or back-handed praise: "Hitler probably didn't figure an onery cunt like Churchill would become PM."

I prefer "vag," though I don't know how to pluralize it: "vags" or "vages"?

"Slut" is okay, provided it's not as an insult. "You are such a slut!" she laughed, "You're an inspiration!"

But what do you guys think? Breasts? Boobs? What word is in your mind when you see boobs or write about them?
or three words in a four word sentence: "Fuck the fucking fuckers!"

"Boobs" is good when women use it: ditto "boobies" when saying it in humour.

re: lovecraft68's response
"Girls" is cute, if her breasts are big enough.

I'd much prefer something like, "He moved between her spread thighs and pushed himself into her, slowly, wanting to feel her slick heat over every inch." versus "He moved between her spread thighs and pushed his dick into her, slowly, wanting to feel her slick heat over every inch." That one word just takes me out of the scene, literary-wise. Real life-wise, however...
kinda agree

It was so off-putting.

Would it have been better if she talked in a robotic voice, or like 7of9?

That must be reserved for only the strongest, most beautiful, and virile men.
Good point: "dick" is less intense than "cock."

What we need is more words for tongue.

The influence is subtle, but it's there.
Good tip to keep in mind.

I like all of them in their place. Love pussy, slit even vagina. Cock, dick rod, even penis, as long as I don't use them in too close proximity to one another.

As a huge fan of using just the right word, I once wanted to describe the feeling of two cocks rubbing up against each other in a DP, separated only by that thin inner wall of flesh and wanted to call that section of anatomy by it's name (note to self: stay away from clinical names): It failed.

I can just imagine my reader: "Oh yeah, she's got two dicks in her, all stuffed with cock. They're bangin' the shit out of her... oh fuck, this is so hot. Oh, man... she can feel their dicks rubbing up against each other through the... WHAT? (imagine the sound of tires squealing to a stop) The rectovaginal septum? What the fuck? Shit... I better find a video to get my boner back."

Personally, I tend to avoid clinical terms like vagina, penis, labia, scrotum, etc. I like reading porn/erotica, so I want "dirty" words and some poetry to my prose, not a medical examination. I try to mix it up using both indirect references like "My explorations found the top edge of her panties and I pulled the elastic back, then dipped my fingers into the furry warmth within,..." or "She felt him slip inside much easier this time, her body opening to pull him back in where she needed him most,..." and more straight up smut like "She rocked her hips, rubbing her clit back and forth against him and smearing her slick juices along his rod." and "...and with an unexpected flexing quiver, my orgasm was crashing upon me and I started to fill her pussy with squirt after squirt of hot spunk."

Honestly, pretty much any word is fair game in the right circumstance, though...even the "medical" ones. I tend to just write whatever, then do "fixes" in editing with an eye towards "Do I like how it reads?" and "Have I used this word too much?". A lot of my word choice is very "in the moment" and I try to not overthink things too much. It's taken me years to learn to just write what I like and accept my voice/style.

No matter how hard you try, someone, somewhere will hate what you do/make, so, fuck it...do what you like and be happy.

"...her rectovaginal septum—it getting that unique massage that only two dicks could give it."

It'd likely work for me if I was into fucking a woman with another guy.

I kinda like the technical and medical be cause it's right there: the concrete versus the abstract or metaphorical; though I agree it's contextual and I suppose do what you feels is right: it'd probably being the best way.

The variety of opinions here is fascinating! Despite all our different habits as authors, it's funny (and appreciated) that as readers we're mostly able to get over it and adapt to whatever terms a particular story tends to use.

For myself, I think the only word I outright dislike is "cunt"-- too much of a negative association, but I've gotten used to reading it. Words like "dick" I really only use in dialogue to express a certain aspect of a character's attitude/personality/level of maturity.

I'm absolutely okay with clinical words (penis, vagina, labia, etc.) except maybe vulva which is the only one that doesn't turn me on in the slightest. I think what I don't mind about the clinical terms is the transition of "penis" to "cock" or "vagina" to "pussy [big fan!]" (however non-equivalent those last 2 are-- don't even bother) suggesting in some way the transition of a character from shy/embarrassed/etc. to sexually motivated, which is a primary feature of many of my stories. That said, I ultimately tend to go back and forth between those pairs because it's hard to write a detailed description of sex without having a handful of go-to terms to toggle between in order to avoid sounding repetitive. I think I just tilt the balance in favor of one or the other according to the degree of sexual expression in a particular context, in order to promote an increasing state of arousal.
