What’s the big deal with the word "vagina?"  Seriously, why is it that we can come up with hundreds of words for the female genitalia, but we can’t actually say vagina?  Why does it need to have a "cute" name like coochie?  Why has the anatomically correct name for a body part become so taboo, but the crude words remain and are said without blushing?  Standards and practice for television won’t let the word "vagina" fly, but you can hear "bitch" on Comedy Central all day long.  While we’re on that topic, did you know they let the word "bitch" fly, but bleep out "ass."  Seriously.

          Oy.

          Vagina.  There you have it.

          What term do you use most frequently when referring to the female genitalia?
