Readers Respond! The Funniest Things Kids Call Their Genitals

Kids can be pretty hilarious sometimes. They can also be pretty embarrassing, too.

When Babble Deputy Editor and Babble Voices Blogger, Mira Jacob, wrote a post recently about her son wanting to lick everything, including his own penis, readers responded with some pretty funny stories of the mortifying things that their kids had said and done in public.

The post also started an interesting, and highly entertaining, discussion about the many words that children use to describe their genitals.

I sorted through reader comments and put together a list of the funniest things that kids have said about their bits. Check it out below and then tell me, what’s the funniest word your kid has used in place of penis or vagina?

  • Front Butt 1 of 10
    Front Butt
    I had never heard this term before. Now, I can't stop laughing (and cringing) about it.

  • Hee Ha 2 of 10
    Hee Ha
    Not to be confused with the noise from a donkey, or the children's program from yesteryear, this term is meant to describe a boy's penis.

  • Hoo Hoo 3 of 10
    Hoo Hoo
    Owls may be none too pleased to have their nightly call turned into a term for girly parts. Also, let's not leave out, "hoo ha," the sister term to "hee ha."

  • Hot Dog 4 of 10
    Hot Dog
    "Hot dog, hot dog, hot diggity dog" takes on a whole new meaning to the preschool set.

    My Privacy
    A different take on the ever popular "private parts." The brochure above may be adopted by parents everywhere.

  • Tenders 7 of 10
    Ask any dad, and they'll tell you that getting kicked in the "tenders" is a highly appropriate term.

  • Junk 8 of 10
    My boys use this sometimes and I can't figure out why in the world it would have ever come to be known as a term for male genitalia.

  • Peeps 9 of 10
    Not at all the same as the cute, yummy marshmallowy treat. Not even close.

  • Tentacles 10 of 10
    A funny mispronunciation of testicles. It makes me giggle when I imagine a little boy using it in context. "Mommy! My tentacles itch." or "What are my tentacles for?"
