I’ve always wondered how a word that describes such a beautiful entity could develop into such a negative connotation. One of the reasons I bookmarked your blog many moons ago: a positive outlook towards that which I hold dear (although I’d have a difficult time saying the word out loud in front of a woman).
When you think about it most English swear words are related to sex. The words themselves are not inherently bad, it’s just the connotations associated to them that are bad. It makes you wonder about our (society’s) feelings towards sex and the body. A lot of repression there.
