pudendum \pyu-ˈden-dəm\ noun: the external genital organs of a human being and especially of a woman (usually used in the plural, pudenda)

Etymology: New Latin, singular of Latin pudenda, from neuter plural of pudendus, gerundive of pudēre to be ashamed

What does it say of a culture when its people basically refer to their agents of propagation as their “shame?”
