S is for Smegma

Smegma is a word that makes people throw up in their mouths, but I'm here to tell you that smegma is a most beautiful thing.

Smegma has the reputation of being gross stinky dick cheese.  But actually, both males and females produce smegma.  For both sexes it is a whitish substance composed of shed skin cells and oily secretions.  In men you'll find it on the glans (dick head) and under the foreskin, and for ladies it lurks between the labia and around the clitoris.

Rather than being the product of bad hygiene*, smegma is actually clean, healthy, and beneficial.  It moisturises, lubricates and protects your precious genitals.


*please still wash your genitals

P is for Pudendum

Pudendum was the word used by medieval anatomists to refer to external genitalia, specifically female external genitalia, AKA the VULVA.

 

Pudendum is from the Latin 'pudenda' meaning 'to make ashamed' or 'the shameful part of something'.  

The reasoning for why the anatomists associated the vulva with shame is:   Women's genitalia is tucked away between the legs, whereas men's genitalia faces forward and outward.   So this must be because women's genitalia is supposed to be hidden.  And why would men's be on show but women's hidden?  Because women's genitalia are shameful, duh.

Obviously there are in fact clear biological reasons why male and female genitals are arranged in the way in which they are, and it has nothing to do with shame you stupid medieval anatomists.

P is for Packer

A packer is a prosthetic flaccid penis.

Probably derived from the term ‘Packing Heat’ (possessing a weapon/possessing a penis), a packer is an artificial dick that is not used for penetration (eg. like a strap-on) but rather to be worn in all contexts (not exclusively sexual) under clothes to give the appearance of the wearer to be… packing heat.

Packing is often practiced by trans men (Female-to-Male Transgender). 

Packers come in a range of different materials and some are even firm enough to be used for penetration.
