I don't remember about when I was little, but kids at my high school have taken to calling things snatches, pieces, tools, bits...those names go for pretty much anything.
Breasts are being referred to as boobs, which I think is kinda standard, plus rack (as in "she's got a nice rack")...top shelf...headlights, assets...girlie bits. Girlie bits sounds a little funny when it's said by a male, though.
My friends and I, being the sophisticated high schoolers that we are, LOL, refer to certain people's penises as Pedro, Ralph, Peter, etc. Eventually, though, you run out of names, and then you go with rod, little buddy (or big buddy), stock...and a few more.
Oh, and butts! Haha we have toosh, heinie *my personal fave*, back door, and some others that would take too long to explain.
When I first heard "Koochi snatcher box" (sp?) used in the Vagina Monologues, I burst out laughing, and I've used "koochi" since. I like pseudo-oriental terms--"Jewel Terrace," "Pearl on the Jade Step," "Golden Gully," "Cinnabar Gate," "Lotus Pool." I like the frankness of the "proper" terms, but I do find it hard to be really sexy with words that aren't particular sexualized and that I've heard my parents and doctors used, the exceptions being "clit," which I think is cute (I like "button" too), and "breasts," which is a lovely word. My breasts do have pet names, but we don't use them terribly often. Place names are fun as pet names too, especially if they're of wet places... "Would you like to visit Venice someday?" "I hear the Orinoco is *especially* wet these days." Silly, but fun.
For male anatomy, I must admit to using "Mr. Happy" fairly often. Sometimes "Joy stick." Again, I like poetic phrases--"Jade Stalk," "Coral Stem," "Dragon Pillar," "Turtle Head," "Red Bird."
My vibrator is named Topika, since it embodies both masculine ("peak") and feminine (feminine -a ending).
Oh my god, this is the first thread I have ever read from Scarleteen and I just could not stop laughing! I especially love "Millimeter Peter". My friend Doug refers to my vagina as "that little hoohoodilly". *shrugs* I never said we were normal.
------------------ I love being me...is that a crime?
Yeah, same here, my mom was a labor and delivery nurse so I probably always jsut heard "penis" or "vagina". Maybe because I grew up like that I'm annoyed when I hear girls my age say "I sucked on his wee-wee" There are so many other better words that don't sound so childish. For kids its okay but y'know, after middle school they should be left behind.

Just heard 'c*ck-wallet' a few days ago. And the really bad thing was that it wasn't meant to apply to the vagina, but the whole woman. Ugh!!
