Swedish Sex Ed Group Seeks New Word For Female Masturbation

The Swedish Association for Sexuality Education (RFSU) wants women to have their own word for female masturbation, in the belief that it will bring about more open discussion of a taboo subject.

Evidently, having a wank just won't do.

After launching a competition earlier this month, the group has received more than a thousand suggestions.

They have compiled a shortlist of 34 words, which the Swedish public can vote on between now and Sunday. Non-Swedes, isn't this a bummer? Why can't we get in on this?

The most popular three words will be voted on by the RFSU's committee in June 2015. Among the contenders are klittra, pulla and selfa.

Speaking as an American, I'm going to call for a time out. Those words sound like IKEA masturbation! Can't they come up with something more universal?

Researching this story, I see that the Daily Mail has reported it, using words like nether-regions and Ladybits. Not as IKEA, but much too tea-time at Fortnum & Mason: 'Excuse me, I will have some ladybits with that!'

Words are so evocative, aren't they? And guess what: On List of The Day, you can already find 371 euphemisms for female masturbation. They are imaginative, if somewhat sickening and/or baffling.

Okay then. Females, do we need a new word or are we doing just fine with what we have? Weigh in below.
