“Thigh gap” seems to have two meanings. One is what the girl in this pic is demonstrating, that little separation at the top of the thighs. Most men rather like that gap, especially if the woman is standing with the light behind her so that the sun seems to shine out of her cunt.
The other meaning is linked in with not terribly healthy pressure, especially on young women, to be so skinny that when they’re standing straight with their feet together, their thighs don’t touch at all. But I’m not here to do a rave about healthy body image. Very worthy topic, but a bit boring.
I’m talking about “thigh gap” in the first sense, as an elegant diamond-shaped gap between the thighs, just below the cunt. That gap is a grace-note on the body, one that agreeably plump girls can have as well as agreeably slender girls. Thigh gap, in this sense, is like sacral dimples: I like sacral dimples (little dimples on either side of the lower spine, a few centimetres above the buttocks) but I’d never complain if a girl didn’t have them.
So … I tried to find the correct anatomical term for that sweet little gap, and I found that there isn’t one. Or there wasn’t until now. That gap, in correct anatomical terminology, is the inter-gracile sub-pudendal fossa.
All hail, the inter-gracile sub-pudendal fossa!
