chinko チンコ, chinpo チンポ (Vulgar, Sex-Related Term)

NSFW : this article may contain words or images you'd rather not have your boss see.

In Japanese, chinko チンコ means "penis," but it's a vulgar word, so its closer to "dick" instead. Like some other terms for body parts, it can get the o- お~ polite prefix attached to it: ochinko おチンコ. It's also spelled ちんこ, おちんこ. It's also romanized tinko.

A common vulgar wordplay on pachinko パチンコ, which is a gambling game like pinball, and the word chinko チンコ, which means "penis."
Anime: Africa no Salaryman, アフリカのサラリーマン (Episode 1)
  • Context: a common "dirty joke," shimoneta 下ネタ.
  • pachinko
    A gambling game similar to pinball.
  • If you remove the pa パ from pachinko, you get chinko, "penis."

A less vulgar, childish variant is chinchin ちんちん, or ochinchin おちんちん. The technical term for "penis" is inkei 陰茎.

The female counterpart would be manko マンコ.


The word chinpo チンポ means the same thing as chinko チンコ, it's just another vulgar word for "penis." It even has the same variants: chinpo ちんぽ, ochinpo おチンポ, おちんぽ.

If there's any difference between chinko and chinpo, it's that chinko is more common and chinpo is more obscene. So it's basically the same thing as the difference between "dick" and "cock" in English.(

There are also other variants meaning more or less the same thing, like:

  • chinbou ちんぼう
  • chinpou ちんぽう
  • chinboko ちんぼこ
  • chinpoko ちんぽこ
  • chinpokko ちんぼっこ


There's a dozen of slangs involving penises that include the morpheme chin チン, an abbreviation of either chinko or chinpo—doesn't really matter which—in them. For reference:

  • furuchin
    "Full penis."
    • A man who's fully naked. Even his trousers are gone.
  • yokochin
    "Horizontal penis."
    • A penis that's visibly "horizontal," yoko 横. In the sense it's either exposed, sticking out the shorts from one of the leg openings, or that makes a horizontal bulge in the pants.
  • yarichin
    "Doing penis."
    • From the verb yaru やる, which means a dozen of things, but in this case specifically it means "to have sex." This term refers to someone who (or rather, whose penis) has a lot of sex. Someone promiscuous.
  • dekachin
