Penis Nomenclature

Recommended Posts

The thread about what your gf called your penis reminded me of when I was a boy what family members called it and some of them were odd.  My dad when I was a boy would tell me stop playing with your nooner lol.  i never could figure out why he called it that, when I was a teenager he called it a pecker.  My uncles called it a Peter, the traditional name back then.  Me and my friends called it Peter or Dick.  nobody called it a cock back then where I lived until the internet came around.  When I was a teenager a lot of the older men called a pussy a cock.

Growing up I had a neighbor who was 2 years older than me. He would let me jack him off (he could cum, I still had dry orgasms). Then I started sucking him and he called his dick a Tootsie Roll Pop. We would be playing around the neighborhood and he would ask if I wanted a Tootsie Pop. We would go up in his tree house and I would suck him dry.

I would never doubt Adrian's veracity, though I'm surprised by bollocks. To Brits today, if using bollocks as an anatomical name, it would refer to the testes.

Standalone it has many other uses, as for example 'it's the bollocks' meaning it is very good; 'its bollocks' meaning it is false or rubbish; 'Bollocks' a useful expletive; 'fuck it that's bolloxed' meaning it's broken. There are many other examples.

But as a penis synonym? Not heard of that, and would welcome a source ( with respect of course Adrian).

@F. LaCid  Who knows the source, its just a list off the internet.  
I have heard bullocks as balls and bullshit but never good, of course we don't really speak English on this side of the pond.  Although BC'er are closer to proper English than the rest of canada and our merkan fiends.

fuck it that's knackered

Context of course. The knackerman was a farrier who dealt with old or injured horses, effectively a slaughterman, hence knackered for something that cannot be fixed. Yes, yer bollocks are yer knackers: don't ask me how, they just are.

Usage as good? We have a beer (real ale of course) here called 'The Dogs', this was originally put out as 'The Dog's Bollocks' with a pump clip featuring a Dalmation sat on a large bone, the dogs bollocks being a term of high approbation. Eventually the 'Bollocks' had to be removed so now some of us ask for the castrated beer. Similarly, another popular beer, Wells' 'Bombardier' is often called Yossarian, as he was the bombardier.

I maunder!

I didn't see "pee-pee" on the list, anyone else called it that? 

Yes pee-pee was very popular when  I was a young boy.   Wiener of course was popular too once it grew a little bit.

@roadking55 Number 35 under the 1900's.  I missed it the first time too and it's what everyone said when  young or talking to youngsters
It is the organ or the act.  "You have to go pee-pee"  I mean who would say "Do you need to void your bladder of urine through the urethra and exiting from the meatus urethrae externus  of your penis?"

Have we mentioned dingalinger yet?  My mom, dad and uncle that lived with us, would call it a dingalinger when referring to me sometimes.  I think my dad changed it to my nuner or nooner around puberty,  still don't know where that one came from.

@canuck45 Wow!!! That is one long and funny list.  Never heard of a lot of those.  But I would probably know immediately what they were talking about if someone used any of the words. 

Growing up, my brother and I called our cousin's penises "lubbies", a play on the Norwegian word "lubben" which means chubby.  It was a good descriptor of their penises.  They called our penises "slankies", which was from the Norwegian word slank, meaning slender.  Again, a good descriptor for our penises.  Our father and uncle always referred to our penises as dingdongs, which always made us laugh.

Lubbie and Slankie....sounds like good names for characters in  Kids Book 

Lubbie woke up all excited.  Today Lubbie and his twin brother Slankie were going to visit the Zoo.  Slankie had seen a picture book about zoos and told Lubbie about some of the animals at zoos. Lubbie could hardly wait to see the different animals:  Oli phants,  Grillas, T-eye grrrs, Mun kees and other erotic aminals.
Slankie thought mun keeys must be good fishermen, cause he was told they were master baiters so must fish a lot.

I called mine most times  My dick.  ("I like my dick.")  Or, he's got  a nice looking dick.  That works most times.

In my mind, the word "cock" is reserved for a big/huge penis (Did you see the cock on him?)

Jokingly refer to it as the One Eyed Monster (it's far from a monster). 

I have a buddy who calls his Mr Happy.

Honestly, I think penis, dick, and cock are all so commonplace that I use them interchangeably; the nuance between them is really more subjective at this point. Other euphemisms like dong, wang, schlong, and the like may also have their connotations, but I find them to be more humorous than anything else, so I typically use those words when joking with my friends. I also prefer to use penis and other like nomenclature in professional capacities (such as having discussions in class).

I’ve referred to my penis as my ‘thing’ from as far back as I can remember. I very well may have picked up that term from my mom. Sometimes I call it my ‘pee pee’ as well. Both are appropriate terms for one my size I think..lol.

My mother and my unhung father both used clinical terms exclusively, possibly because they had silent defensiveness around the issue.  I remember being surprised to hear open references to dicks and cocks in some other families.

Growing-up and especially when my puberty failed to emerge for several years, everyone else had a cock, dick, wang, meat, etc. while mine, if mentioned, was always a pee pee, weenie, or dickie or some such.  The regular guys often talked  with pride about "springing a boner", "getting a hard-on", "creaming," and "getting their nut."
