Between her legs

Last month I collected a list of penis terms that put the purple in romance heroes’ cocks. *g* And no, I didn’t make them up! Really, just scan the sex scenes of books that were first published during the Fabio era and I bet you’ll find some of those euphemisms! In any case, after that article, many have asked, “Harlot, what about the vajayjay?”

I think it’s safe to say that the ultimate difference between the sexes is found between the legs (unless you have a genetic glitch and have the choice of who does what to whom :/). Now, that distinction doesn’t stop with looks, functions and the way you should stroke—er, perform. Eheh.

Women might love cocks like a favorite toy or a delicious trinket (especially when it’s coated with Nutella :P), but men, despite *ahem* all their faults, are OBSESSED with vaginas. It seems that the puss is not only the “center” of every female but also the “center of paradise” for every male. Why, no matter what his intentions are at the beginning, the end target is always the same: to get between her legs! Here are some examples:
  • She has an amazing body. Gee, I’d like to get between her legs.
  • She has a body. Gee, I’d like to get between her legs.
  • She’s very smart and witty. Gee, I’d like to get between her legs.
  • She’s as dumb as a post. Gee, I’d like to get between her legs.
  • She has the most sensual, sexiest voice I’ve ever heard. Gee, I’d like to get between her legs.
  • She can’t talk. Gee, I’d like to get between her legs.
  • I like her, really. Gee, I’d like to get between her legs.
  • I love her and want to marry her. Gee, I’d like to get between her legs.
  • Hmm, looks like it’ll be a sunny day. Gee, I’d like to get between her legs.
Of course there’s the possibility I’m exaggerating, but somehow I doubt it LOL. Anyway, I’ve gathered some coochie terms that romance writers have devised to describe the female anatomy. Well, we don’t want the men to be left out with the dirty talk now, do we? *wink*
  • apex of her legs
  • blonde/red curls between her creamy hips
  • center of paradise
  • cleft betwixt her thighs
  • curly mound of tawny hair
  • curly nest at the junction of her legs
  • damp, moist needy place
  • deeper heat within
  • delicate softness
  • door of her femininity
  • downy mound
  • entrance of her delight
  • fiery furnace
  • golden flesh
  • glistening portals of her womanhood
  • guarded place
  • hot sleeve of love
  • hot, wet sheath
  • hot pool
  • into her body
  • lily
  • loins
  • moist heart of her flower
  • moistness between
  • molten need
  • most secret places
  • most sensitive spot
  • most special of places
  • most tender flesh
  • most treasured pearl of passion
  • mound of Venus
  • nest of desire
  • nether lips
  • passion-moistened depths
  • petal-smooth center
  • petal-soft folds of her womanhood
  • place even warmer and wetter
  • private satin flesh
  • pulsating core
  • receptive body
  • secret parts
  • silken warmth
  • slick wet heat of her
  • slick wetness of her excitement
  • slippery softness
  • stretching walls of her body
  • sweet warmth
  • tight depths
  • warm, dark haven
  • warm damp entrance
  • wetness and heat
  • where she most ached for fulfillment
  • where she was moist and desperate
  • where she was soft and yearning
  • womanhood
  • womanly wet heart of her
I’d like to end this list (which, really, won’t be complete without this quote) with something from one of my *ahem* “favorite” books evah, Outlander. *g*

“Jamie! Not here!” I said, squirming away and pushing my skirt down again.

“Are you tired, Sassenach?” he asked with concern. “Dinna worry, I won’t take long.” Now both hands were at it, rucking the heavy fabric up in front.

“No!” I replied, all too mindful of the twenty men lying a few feet away. “I’m not tired, it’s just—” I gasped as his groping hand found its way between my legs.

“Lord,” he said softly. “It’s slippery as waterweed.”

Fiery furnace? OMG too funny! LMAO Oh, thanks for the laugh BBs. It's a great follow up post after the manroot terms. ;)

waterweed? I have no words. Wait, I do, wtf?!?! Oh and the whole "moist triangle" ALWAYS makes me think she has fungus or something. Yuck.

Love the list!!!! :-)

I keep reading how wet or damp the heroine's "center" is I'm beginning to think authors have an orgasm everytime they write those terms. LOL

Harlot, I love Outlander and for the life of me can't remember that quote! Are you sure Jamie said waterweed? :P

9/18/2006 11:26:00 AM  

Blogger ames said...

LMAO!! That quote from Outlander-waterweed? And that one line, "I won't take long." Hmm...that's not a good thing. LOL

Now we need a list for the clit - I hate when it's referred to as a nubbin.

Blogger HOTMAMA said...

Harlot, lol, that picture is really strange!


How about "Honey Pot" and variations like, "dripping honey pot" LMAO!

I bet Jamie really did say "waterweed"!

Blogger Vicious Trollop said...

Gad I hate outlander. Anyone that compares my vagina to a slippery waterweed is NOT getting any!

Also, what the hell does that mean "I wont take long"? Is he going to do it even if she doesnt want to, just because it wont take long? That jamie is a piece of work; what a pig!

Babe, that position in that pic soooo not possible lol. He's balancing himself, while carrying her on his toes? I don't even think a gymnast could pull that off LOL

Blogger Harlot said...

I swear, every word, it's there in OUTLANDER. LOL

I know! WTF is "nubbin" anyway? Isn't that part of a corn? Imagine a corn stuck in your pussy. Oh fuck! That's gotta itch!!!

Dripping honey pot is nasty! Euw euw euw!

LOVE this painting by de Villiers. He paints couples in the throes LOL. Anyway, i think with the right angle that position could be done. :P I mean, really, what if they're underwater? Or they're actually lying down in a certain way? Besides, anything is possible in paintings! Hmph!

BTW, soooo agree about Jamie. ACK!

LMAO. That Outlander quote is perfect!

Love this list. The sad part is I've read almost all of these terms from my books at least twice!

Harlot, LOL, I believe you. :P By the way, I agree about the painting. It's beautiful.

Great list Harlot. But you know I love those "gee, i'd like to get between her legs" examples. LOL. And I so agree btw!

I think purple prose for men's anatomy is worse than that use for the women. Manroot alone would make you gag, either with laughter or revulsion. :P

Good post and good quote! Waterweed indeed. LOL

Love the Outlander quote LOL

Harlot, that quote made my Jamie sound like an insensitive boy! And like Casey, can't remember the waterweed comment. LOL Great list!

Blogger Lorelei said...

LMAO with that Outlander quote! Now about the list, I mostly encounter "moist nether lips". LOL

Those examples are great. I'm surprise none of the male readers are objecting. LOL Is that a confirmation then? :P

From RETURN TO ME by S McKenna:

"He'd been nineteen, he'd been in too much of a hurry to get his dick a mile or so inside her.

His hand slid between her thighs and brushed over her satin panties, his fingers brushing over the damp glow of need,teasing, coaxing. His hand slid between the elastic of her panties..'Cor.My God,' he groaned, 'You're completely...' 'Yeah,' she whispered,'you bet I am. I get a Brazilian wax every few weeks. I love to be bare down there. You like it?' 'Oh God.' He slid his hand beneath the fabric.
And she went off, just like that. Long and wrenching, like a fountain sobbing inside her."

Much, Much, better than "nest of curls!!"
And a good use of some of Harlot's list, LOL!

Can a fountain Sob??

Is it just me or does it cross everyone's minds when you hear the fiery loins know they make creams for that. And if your loins are in fact "fiery" keep your freaking pants on until it clears up!

9/18/2006 09:01:00 PM  

Blogger Jordis said...

Hehesnort, you're right about that! LOL And to think many authors use that term.

Hotmama, fountain sobbing? LOL Hey, isn't Return to Me a contemp book? Oh yikes, somehow that makes it worse!

Blogger Lollie Rose said...

Harlot, what about the boob terms? Globes, peachy soft? Heh.

Hotmama, I've read that book and actually liked it. Funny that I never noticed "fointain sobbing". What the hell is that?!

9/18/2006 09:32:00 PM

Though "waterweed" I think is the worst yet. Too funny! Wonder what Ms. Gabladon was thinking when she wrote that... :P

Lollie rose, I luurrv RETURN TO ME! It's one of my favs and very hot! That scene was with the secondary characters. Thing is, when I'm in the middle of reading a scene like that, I don't notice the silly turns of phrase, lol!

Outlander sounds like an interesting book. Haven't run across it yet. My fellow writers in a romance writing club that I am in have had this discussion many times. It is so funny to see all the terms romance writers use for genitalia. Good post.

9/18/2006 09:51:00 PM  

Blogger Harlot said...

Fointain sobbing? God, that's bad! See, told you guys. Just scan the sex scenes and you'll find a lot of purple. And i'm not talking about the hero's cock. :P

Oh fuck! My word verification is "quimrk". LMAO

9/18/2006 09:54:00 PM  

Blogger Harlot said...

Hey Dana, :)
A lot of people looove OUTLANDER and consider it as one of the best romance books ever written (not that DG would appreciate it being categorized as "romance" *snort*). Of course i beg to differ LOL. Still, worth a try i guess--at least to know what the fuss is about (*cough* disgusting stuff *cough*). :P

9/18/2006 10:07:00 PM  

Blogger Lollie Rose said...

Harlot, what do you mean? DG doesn't like her books in the romance category? Thats bull. I mean yes, Outlander isn't exactly Harlequin but come on!

Hotmama, I know what you mean, hot sex scenes! I don't notice terms too when I'm reading, unless it's really ridiculous like "raging bull of his hot pants" or something like that.

Finally the vajayjay terms! :P This reminds me of Grey's Anatomy! Anyway "place even warmer or wetter"? Wetter and warmer than what? LOL Good post!

To true Hotmama. If it is a great story you just go with it. It's only when you see lists like this you go my god why didn't I ever notice how completly skank most of the euphamisims are.

what silly buggers writers are!!!

Damp, moist needy place?
Hot, wet sheath?
Hot pool?
Moistness between?
Sweet warmth?
Warm damp entrance?
Wetness and heat?

These all sound like apt descriptions of a moldy cave. Ick.

Yes, moldy cave where algae and giant kelps thrive. Ack

ROFLMAO - slippery as waterweed? What the hell is waterweed when it's at home. Ewww!
I hated those DG books and couldn't see what was remotely attractive about the Jamie character.
Now I'm realising why. What ghastly, ghastly terms these writers use. ACK!
