Boys Have A Penis, Girls Have A Vagina

I don’t want dorky little kid names for the parts but I think penis and vagina are a little too clinical. Or are they? They are, after all, the appropriate names for said parts. I remember reading a string of comments somewhere in which several people said their parents called their private parts everyday words, I think one woman’s parents called her vagina a ‘doughnut’ and she said doughnuts were forever ruined for her. Can you imagine? A life in which doughnuts are gross? Tragic!
It's what I'm babbling about today.
