So the other week I wake up to an email notification in my inbox from the kinky social networking site I belong to. I’m not very active there, so I don’t get a lot of messages. I’ve had a few recently……dominant men who make me snarl and snap, but they’re not worth mentioning. Everybody gets those sort.

But this morning in question I was fresh into my self-imposed hiatus and easily irritated. When I read the message in my email I had no clue who the sender was other than their name but could see that the subject line was “hi honey” and the message was merely: “nice titties sexy girl”. I logged into the site with guns a’blazin’ and was all ready to fire off a “fuck you” email for the offensive and assumptive content (I told you I was feeling cranky and pissy! I’d normally brush it off)

but wait.

It’s not from a guy…..

And suddenly, I was stopped. My first reaction was “hey that’s kinda…..hot”. She appears to be a little butch but she’s in a relationship with a guy and her look isn’t “butch” just “metal/punk/raaaa” tryin to be a hard ass. Her profile though comes across very butch and gruff and Toppy and a few lines in it lead me to believe that anything I might do with her I can expect him to be involved and neither one of them appealed to me quite enough to get involved in a dual-topping session from them.

Mostly importantly though was that lingering word that I hate.

“titties”

I hate it. It sounds like a word used to describe an animal, like a cow’s teets or a dog’s. Which therefore leads me to imagining it coming out of a uneducated redneck-drawled mouth and…….no. Just….no.

Tits is fine. Boobs is fine. But yet I also cringe at “boobies” unless its coming from a kid. The word “boobies” seems juvenile to me. Whether it comes from a man or woman, it just feels asexual. It’s a word that if said during dirty talk would feel like a bucket of cold water.

Of course my skeptical brain then sat there and thought about it and then wondered if that message did, in fact, come from HER. Was it maybe him controlling both accounts? Or just him logging in to her account on a whim? They are local, and if I cared enough I could figure out if she’s actually behind it. But despite a deep craving recently for girly sex or group sex, the intrigue just isn’t there enough for me to take the risk in trying.

    I get what you mean about ‘titties’ and ‘boobies’. Your right, it does make it all sound rather juvenile and just so not what I would use to describe what I see when I look down at my chest, but then again since I have no tits, the small word fits for me!

  • LivingFire

    Oh, how I know what you mean.

    I’m pretty picky about all sex and body related words… and so many of them have the effect you mention- they could turn me off in a second!

    ~ Oh yes, I have my list too. For example “tool” or “meat” is just….. *shudders* total turn-off.

    I guess you really don’t like the title of my blog post today :-/ I say “boobies” to Veronica sometimes, but always in a playful way- I don’t think I ever have/would say that during sex.

    I was never a fan of the term titties either, but in my experience it depends *who* is saying it. I’ve heard some people say it, and it comes off as really sexy and kind of hot. Then I’ve heard other people say it, and just….no. It doesn’t work. To me, the word has to fit with the tits in question and the person who is oogling said tits.

    Well I say find out, it might be a good ride! I like boobage myself.

  • SapioSlut

    There are no good words. Tits? Kinda dull. Breasts? More so. Mammaries? Yes, quite.

    You either have to invent a word – jumblies? – or go foreign – tetas.

    ~ Sure Tits and Boobs are kinda dull but when faced with dull vs downright-silly……I’ll choose dull.

  • Soren

    You mentioned “boobies,” and of course this is was my first thought…

    I give you boobies: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue-footed_Booby

    Well, I would argue that semantically there is a huge difference in all those words. I regularly shoot videos with a porn star who might, on her best day, aspire to an A-Cup.

    THOSE are “titties.”

    That being said, “Boobies,” in any context, is simply ridiculous. Judging from the pix here, I would have to say what you have is… I dunno, I could live with “tits,” but would probably just go with a truly magnificent rack.

    ~ *ponders that for a moment* ehhhh no, I still can’t get behind that word. “bitties”, perhaps. that sounds cute, like less-than-A-cups are. Titties just shouldn’t be applied to the human female, is all.

  • thekamamama

    I agree with Amber, context is everything. “Tits” from a douchebag makes him even douchier. “Tits” from a hot woman? Hot. “Titties” is even harder to pull off, but the right person could do it, in the right circumstances.

    How do you feel about ” Fun Bags ” ?

    ~ I’m gonna do my best to pretend you’re joking.

    Fragrant Lilly,

    Thank you, once again, for your beautiful writing.

    Men, already hampered by the insensitivity that is endemic to our gender, get divergent clues to women’s wants in the area of anatomical nomenclature. Some “love it when you talk dirty”, but can’t stand it if you call them “slut”. Some want to be “daddy’s little girl”, while others are repulsed by it. Some don’t want to hear the word “cunt”, others are turned off by “titties”, as you are.

    You do us all a great service by reminding us of the fact that women are wonderfully complex, each one-of-a-kind, and deserve to have their man (or man of the moment) cater to their whims and desires. How else is a man going to attain the pleasure of pleasing a woman?

    A man who does not has the sensitivity of a (genuine-not for play) rapist.

    You are a treasure!

    Titties annoys me. As do jugs, knockers and tons of other names for them. Tits is nice and tends to be the one my boyfriend uses the most so cool. I had someone tell me recently that I had “rockin’ bozangas” and all I could do was laugh and tell her thanks.

    Definitely in agreement with you on “titties.”

    And now I can’t get that Peaches song out of my head.

    You know: “Suckin’ on my titties like you wanted some…”
