Vijayjay


From Harper's Weekly: The New York Times Style section published a feature on the rise of the term "vajayjay" to describe female genitalia. "The reason that vajayjay has caught on, I think, is because there is a black --Southern especially-- naming tradition, which is to have names like Ray Ray and Boo Boo and things like that," said John H. McWhorter, a linguist at the Manhattan Institute. "It sounds warm and familiar and it almost makes the vagina feel like a little cartoon character with
eyes that walks around."
And top golfer Vijay Singh, who complained about women joining the men's tour, would be very, very nervous indeed.

Oprah was the very first person I ever heard use that term. It looks like it's really now catching on like wildfire in the mainstream.

In Jakarta their equivalent of our tricycle is called bajaj (pronounced bajay) and we got a kick out of saying 'Ayan may bajaj na' or 'Napasakay na naman ako sa bajaj na mabaho.' Indonesians also used the honorific 'Mbak' (with a silent 'k') for young women. We had someone in our group named Gina and it always made her squirm when locals called her Mbak Gina.
