'Your woman' not OK?  How about 'your mate'?  'Your baby'?  'Your squeeze'
- an oldie there.  'Your old woman' definitely out.

Women are conflicted the way most men aren't about their body parts.
Breasts can be 'puppies'.  Ravel wrote a piece called Les Mammelles de Ste.
Teresias.  Vaginas can be 'down there'.  .  An oldtimer psych prof when I
started would tell girls to shut 'The Gates of Hell'.  Hundreds of slang
terms online.  Reason?   Anxiety.  We somehow cannot stand medical terms
even those are usually without anxiety.  bill w
