Most people are exposed to slang words for testicles and penis from a very young age. In fact, many children learn slang words for these body parts well before they know the words “penis” and “testicle”. Mom or Dad may refer to little boy’s penis as his “penie”, “pee-pee” or “wee-wee” while potty training. Girls may also be taught these words when she asks questions.
The slang continues as age progresses. School age children, teens and adults all commonly use slang words for penis. Some of the words are mild or humorous, such as “peter”, “dinky” or “frankfurter”. Other slang terms can be offensive. These words may include, “dick”, “cock” and “prick”.
The most common slang term for testicles is “balls”. “Cojones” and “nuts” are also frequently used for testicles. Someone may say they were “kicked in the family jewels” to describe an assault to the testicles.
Here’s a list of slang words
People should consider the audience when using slang words. It may be appropriate to use slang words when describing the body parts to a romantic partner, but the correct words should be used when speaking to a doctor. It may be acceptable to throw around the more controversial slang words while having a few drinks with friends, but it is not right to use those same words in conversations with mother or boss. Common sense should be used.
