The real topic is why modern anatomists still use “pudenda” to mean cunt. But this post strays off the path a bit.
The Oxford Shorter Dictionary claims that it isn’t clear that Latin “cunnus” is related to the English word “cunt”. Well, they’re the experts, but it seems pretty improbable that the Latin word “cunnus” and the Germanic “kunta” (the source of the English word) don’t have a common proto-Indo-European root.
Anyway, I was looking for images to illustrate the word “cunnus”, and I found this piece of jewellery.
Pretty, isn’t it? I want one.
