Why didn’t I think of this?

More importantly, why did nobody think of this sooner? Surely this abridged version of “vagina” has been around for years, but somehow I’ve only been hearing it in the last year or two. Where has it been all my life?

“Vag” is a slightly derogatory term for the vagina, used as slang. But the reason I love it so much is because it is typically used by women to refer to their own parts as crudely as possible. Just like “vagina” it is completely lacking in sexual undertones, but unlike “vagina” it is not sterile and medical. It is bizarre and filthy. One does not have sex with a vag, or examine a vag, one crams objects in a vag. A vag is not clean and ladylike, it is filthy and oozing with stinking putrid fluids. And that is why I love this word. It deliberately calls attention to the negative aspects of vaginas, sort of how the word “junk” makes light of a man’s parts, which on first examination are completely unnecessary.

It even sounds horrible. Like it’s going to eat you. And all that bundled up in three little letters.

Respect the Vag.
