... there was a writing major, widely regarded as the best fiction writer on campus while I was there (haven't heard of him since, though I agree he was very good). Anyway he would often make the claim that there are only two words left in the English language that still possess inherent power. "Fuck" and your "C" word.

I was never sure if he meant it, or if it was just the kind of cocky thing you say to grab the attention in a workshop session. But I do think he had a point.

Are there any other words that, all by themselves, can steal the show, silence the room, hit you in the jaw, etc., quite like these?

There's lots of words that still have power and I suppose it has more to do with context and phonics. cunny, quim, box, pussy, all are rather soft sounding while cunt is such a hard sounding word.
I believe the world has grown rather calloused to fuck in all its varied usage heard from birth to death
I object to the word porn. I write, read, and watch human realities without any pseudo filter... far off the subject fuckit

cocked?a finger in her cock sounds odd, though definitely unisexual

if i ever thought you needed to shutup i'd say - and you would be quite at liberty to disagree.

Nether lips, her/his sex (in reference to sexual organs), manhood, shaft, pearl, bud, juice, dew, little death and nub are several that get an eye roll from me. Basically, it's any flowery/cutesy word used for a sexual anatomy and physiology. It's not sexy and even a little embarrassing.

Not directed at anybody's particular contribution so far.
I think this is the start of a dangerous game with language and the last people I'd expect to see starting it are poets. Words are not there for nothing and there were not invented by us. If some people are turned off or on by particular words, that is their problem or their grace, but to suggest the compilation of a list of "no-no's" in writing poems, pornographic or otherwise, I consider it patronizing, big-brotherish and utterly fascistic. It all depends in context and artistry of expression, and not on censorship.
How can you be a censor to your cunt or to your cock? If you got one of them feel proud for it.

But poets do invent words (Shakespeare). I've invented several, both in English and in Polish.

it's really not meant to be taken so seriously, pelegrino

having said that, it can be a useful reminder to writers that what might be their first word-choice isn't necessarily the best one for their poem. if you, as a writer, want your work to be received well, it's sometimes worth considering the reactions your words evoke. what might be a decent poem can be ruined by lazy, uninspired or simply poor judgement.

i am not saying anyone should never use any of the words we're coming up with here, in what's intended as a light-hearted thread; context is everything. and we, as writers, are perhaps a little more jaded than your non-writing readers - a word that might be terribly clichéd to us might still have the impact you desire for your intended audience.

so lighten up, dude... there has to be at least one word that makes you mentally wince when you come across it, surely?

right now i am considering how to write a piece that makes the 'c' word (gawd, i hated typing that) appealing - or at least not obnoxious.

exactly.
many of us do, and writers across the centuries have and will continue to do so, swelling the ranks of brit-speak along with popular culture's input.

Dear butters,
Of course we can invent words. I only meant the words invented by tradition, by people's phonetic or expressive needs, under discussion here. I don’t take seriously anybody's inhibitions, I only take very seriously the subject of freedom of expression.

i would imagine most, if not all, of us here take the freedom of expression very very seriously.

the flip-side to that coin is we must also take seriously the freedom to e-raspberry words we find distateful, clunky, or ridiculous in a poem written with the intention of being erotic and falling at the first hurdle because of them.

I wrote a very long post just now about the nature of clichés. Then I deleted it; the gist of it was that no one's thoughts/feelings are truly unique, special or, ultimately, important. Oh, the irony.

I vaguely remember there being a thread like this before, when Seattle Rain and Eve were around. Believe you me if Eve thought you had written something she didn't like, she would tell you in no uncertain terms. Used to scare the hell out of me at first.
