Are you someone who can't say pen!s or v@gina? Do you type "prawn" or "pr0n" instead of the actual word in a thread when debating the topic?
I get that some people might be at work and getting around a work filter or something but I am genuinely curious as to why people don't use the proper names for things?
Also...as a further thought, do you give "child friendly" names to their anatomy for your kids? I haven't decided what I'm going to do when I have kids yet.
Edited as per Mintie's post below rather than deleting because I'm still curious about general daily use.

***SPIN OFF*** Do you substitute "naughty" words?

You might want to delete this as I answered it elsewhere but yes, it's forum etiquette I guess (that I often fail at) to substitute certain words so that bub hub doesnt attract visitors looking for jollies.

typing is to make it less googlable.
At home we use both kid names and real names. I have learnt how important it is that kids know the real name for things.

I edited my original post because I'm still curious, I've known people who shy away from saying the real names or teach their kids that it's their "winky" and I'm not sure what I'll end up doing.

I used to be a mum that only used bits etc....
I learnt a hard lesson when my a family member child didn't know the correct terms to use in court and they wouldn't accept the kids names she was using and her rapist father got off.

I use real words for things, and only substitute to help make it less googleable as PP mentioned.
I wouldn't nickname my child's arm, so I won't nickname their vagina/penis. I want them to be comfortable with their bodies and know what everything is called by it's proper name! It makes it easier for children and adults to understand and express important things - e.g. "Mrs T, John touched my Princess!" "That's nice, dear."
It's stupid to call it something else and perpetuate embarrassment over nothing embarrassing, IMO.

As the others had said, only for the forum. In real life i use the actual words for things.

With my children I *always* use the real names. Should they ever gods forbid be abused I want there to be no confusion over what they are saying and I've heard of cases being thrown out because a boy referred to his 'winky' not his p3nis. Personally I will avoid using words myself and have creative ways to get around it but these are *my* issues and I'm trying to avoid passing them on
