Little boys refer to their nether-regions as “pee-pees” and “wee-wees” among other things, what sort of slang do young girls use to refer to their nether-regions?
I’m sorry if this comes off as creepy; I’m just curious because I just realized that I never came across that as a little boy.
Im Swedish so I dont know any English slang words but “snippa” is the most common one. The most common one for boys is “snopp” so the words go well together. Also, a few years ago a Swedish kids show made a little song and animation called like the snopp- and snippa song and it made it onto conan obrien show and was apparantly a shocker (its basically just a cartoon dick and vagina dancing, for kids) so yeah, Google that if youre interested. (Im on mobile otherwise i wouldve linked it)
Snoppen och snippan *musikvideo* – Bacillakuten på Barnkanalen
I WINGED my bird,
Though he flew toward the setting sun;
But just as the shot rang out, he soared
Up and up through the splinters of golden light,
Till he turned right over, feathers ruffled,
With some of the down of him floating near,
And fell like a plummet into the grass.
I tramped about, parting the tangles,
Till I saw a splash of blood on a stump,
And the quail lying close to the rotten roots.
I reached my hand, but saw no brier,
But something pricked and stung and numbed it.
And then, in a second, I spied the rattler—
The shutters wide in his yellow eyes,
The head of him arched, sunk back in the rings of him,
A circle of filth, the color of ashes,
Or oak leaves bleached under layers of leaves.
I stood like a stone as he shrank and uncoiled
And started to crawl beneath the stump,
When I fell limp in the grass.

Dante describes scene
He talks to one of the souls
Beatrice helps him
NOTE: Dante follows a certain pattern in Paradise: 1) When Dante arrives at a new planet or star, he describes the scene. 2) Dante then talks to one of the souls on the planet or star. 3) Dante then talks with Beatrice about any questions that he has, and Beatrice answers his questions. Note on illustration: Painting depicting Dante and Beatrice by Ary Scheffer.

GOD’S GREATEST GIFT
When we make a vow
— Free will is God’s greatest gift —
Sacrifice free will
NOTE: God’s greatest gift to us is free will: It is a gift that is like God. When we make a vow, we sacrifice free will. For example, we can make a religious vow of voluntary poverty. If we do that, we sacrifice free will: We are no longer free to make and keep as much money as we can.
