Literary research into Little Dick


Julia Lawrinson, YAL writer and literary livewire, has been doing a little research into what young boys call their penis. I fell over laughing at the last one!

Boy bits

"When I asked my Facebook buddies about modern terminology for boy bits - for the purposes of the latest version of Losing It (yes, really!) - it caused much household mirth, as middle-aged and otherwise respectable parents called out to their offspring, 'Hey! What do you young folk call penises these days?' The 56 comments the request amassed included:

dick (de rigeur, apparently)
willy
doodle (archaic, apparently, tho my sentimental favourite)
tallywhacker
dooley
dingle dangle (I'm not making this up)
peenee
donger (not the thing you sleep in on mine sites)
luscious love muscle
woggie
hairy dangler
junk
doohickey (my favourite)
bobbler
wing wang (my equal favourite)
vertical dangler
and
transcendental signifier (For all of you who suffered Literary Theory at university. The friend who contributed this, one of the brainiest people on the planet, tried to train her young sons in irony at an early age. But even child geniuses prefer dick, it seems.)"
