flap

The vagina. I've heard of "flaps" (plural) for the labia minora, but not this. Equinox 11:00, 22 September 2013 (UTC)

  • I think people get confused between the external and internal feminine genitalia. I blame the very limited amount of pornography available on the web. SemperBlotto (talk) 11:07, 22 September 2013 (UTC)
We're talking about the singular here referring to the vagina. I suppose it might be citable, if so it's a citable error due to misunderstanding. Mglovesfun (talk) 11:41, 22 September 2013 (UTC)

    "Madonga is not blonde. Her flap-hairs are sooty." [sic]
  • 2008 Step Johnson: A Novel of Deep-South Civil Rights and Wrongs in 1936
    "The swell of her hips sent electric shocks through his fingers, like when he licked her flap only a million times more."
  • 2010 Slave Mines of Tormunil
    "He lifted her leg and opened her flap on the side that was lifted and again made her squeeze."
Such literature we are exposed to in the search for citations. ~sigh~

The definition should be changed to "the vulva." This isn't an isolated case, either. I've had to correct entries in which someone conflated vagina with vulva before (for example, vajazzle).
Also, I hear you, Catsidhe. -Cloudcuckoolander (talk) 14:13, 22 September 2013 (UTC)
(edit conflict) Now, I know my way around female genitalia about as well as I know my way around the surface of Mars, but from the cites it sounds more like the vulva than the vagina to me. —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 14:42, 22 September 2013 (UTC)
Frankly, I don't think most slang terms are that anatomically precise. I'd suggest going the road of prat (Etym 2, Noun Def 3.), and define it as "the female genitals". (Which is probably the intended less specific meaning of "vagina" used there anyway.)
I would say labia or female genitals since vagina is technically wrong and vulva isn't a very precise word either. Soap (talk) 01:20, 26 September 2013 (UTC)
Can someone please now ask for verification of some high minded word which I could google for while at work? --Catsidhe (verba, facta) 00:39, 23 September 2013 (UTC)
These don't seem to support the challenged definition. Mglovesfun (talk) 11:05, 23 September 2013 (UTC)
How so? --Catsidhe (verba, facta) 11:48, 23 September 2013 (UTC)
