I don’t know what’s going on right now and I’m sorry if this is TMI for you, but this has gotta come out – I hear the word vagina WAY TOO MUCH…

I had a theory (My theory: It’s Judd Apatow and Lena Dunham’s fault. In every one of their films/series, the word comes up a million times. LOVE them but the word comes back all the time.) and was sharing my views at the studio when the girls told me that the word doesn’t bother them at all.

Disclaimer: Below the dotted line, we’re talking raw (ish, don’t forget I am French), so don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Me: No way. First of all, it’s not nice to describe the female anatomy with that word… Vagina. That’s only part of the picture. The vagina is the inside of the anatomy. It’s only one part. To only use the one word is unfair to everything else.

The girls: Ok but then what are you supposed to say?

Me: Ummmmm, I say pussy! At least it describes the whole picture, and plus it’s cute, I mean… A cat! What’s cuter than that?

The girls, jaws open/upset/disgusted: But that’s gross! And pussy is super trashy.

Me, stunned: Trashy? In France, pussy (chatte, in French) isn’t trashy at all. And it’s even a little poetic!

The girls: No. It’s disgusting. You gotta just say vagina.

Me: But it’s used ALL THE TIME here in every movie… Like, how about vajayjay, don’t you find that plain weird?

The girls: I mean, I dunno. No one really talks about it. I don’t think we care.

Me: But I mean… Ummmm, What about in the heat of the moment? Nothing?

The girls: Oh well yeah, in that case, pussy.

Me: And then just on the street or whatever, vajayjay. Honestly ladies, I don’t get it.

Okay, so are you with me? Are you pussycats or vajayjays?
