Sex-Related Terms

NSFW: this article may contain words or images you'd rather not have your boss see.
WIP: this article is incomplete and might change in the unforeseeable future.
A lot of manga and anime feature sex-related jokes, or dirty jokes, "low jokes," shimoneta 下ネタ, besides those that are simply sexual in nature, like of the ecchi and hentai genres. So, for reference, a list of sex-related Japanese vocabulary.


Let's start with the technical terms for sex-related anatomy. This is mostly the NSFW continuation of the full article about Body Parts.

The words for the genitalia in Japanese:
  • seiki 性器
    Sex organ.
    • sei- 性~
    • -ki ~器
      Organ. Device. Instrument.
  • danseiki 男性器
    Male sex organ.
    • dansei 男性
      Male. Men.
  • joseiki 女性器
    Female sex organ.
    • josei 女性
      Female. Women.
  • naiseiki 内性器
    Internal sex organ.
  • gaiseiki 外性器
    External sex organ.
  • seishoku 生殖
  • seishokuki 生殖器
    Reproductive organ. Genital.
  • inbu 陰部
    Genital area.
    • in 陰 means "unseen" and bu 部 means "part." So the term is literally "private parts."

Parts of the male sexual organ:
  • inkei 陰茎
  • kitou 亀頭
    inkei kitou 陰茎亀頭
    Glans. Glans penis.
  • kari-kubi カリ首
    kari カリ
    inkei kitoukan 陰茎亀頭冠
    inkei kitoukou 陰茎亀頭溝
    Penis crown. Corona of glans penis.
  • inkei houhi 陰茎包皮
    houhi 包皮
    Foreskin. (male only.)
    Prepuce. (both sexes.)
    • hifu 皮膚
    • kawa
      Skin. Hide. Pelt.
  • inkei shoutai 陰茎小帯
    Penile frenulum.
  • inkei kyaku 陰茎脚
    Crus of penis.
    • Since ashi 脚 means "legs," this is literally the "penis' legs."
  • inkei wana jintai 陰茎ワナ靭帯
    Fundiform ligament of the penis.
  • seinou 精嚢
    Seminal vesicle. Seminal glands.
  • shaseikan 射精管
    Ejaculatory duct.
  • zenritsusen 前立腺
    Prostate gland.
  • nyoudou kyuusen 尿道球腺
    kaupaasen カウパー腺
    Bulbourethral gland. "Cowper's gland​." "Urine path ball gland."
  • seikan 精管
    yuseikan 輸精管
    Seminal duct. Vas deferens. Ductus deferens.
  • seikan boudaibu 精管膨大部
    Ampulla of ductus deferens.
  • seisou 精巣
    • Contrary to popular belief, semen isn't stored in the testicles.
    • Sperm is stored in the testicles.
    • Semen is 5% sperm, 95% other stuff.
    • Pee isn't stored in the testicles either.
  • kougan 睾丸
    • Another term for testicle.
    • Note that maru 丸 means "round," while su 巣 means "nest," so you could say one comes from its form and the other from its function. So, for example, toward animals whose testicles don't resemble balls, kougan wouldn't be used.
  • in'nou 陰嚢
  • seisou shouyou 精巣小葉
    Lobules of testis.
  • seisoumou 精巣網
    Rete testis.
  • seisou joutai 精巣上体

      "Vulva." (generally not used.)
  • inretsu 陰裂
    Pudendal cleft.
  • inkaku 陰核
    intei 陰梃
    • kuritorisu クリトリス
    • inkaku houhi 陰核包皮

  • inkakukyaku 陰核脚
    Crus of clitoris. "Clitoris' legs."
  • chitsu
    • The "vagina" is an internal tube connecting the uterus to the outside of the body.
    • In English, a lot of people use the term "vagina" to refer to the vulva, which is technically not the same thing as the vagina.
    • vagina ヴァギナ
      wagina ワギナ
  • chitsukou 膣口
    Ostium of the vagina. "Vaginal opening."
  • shojomaku 処女膜
    • The word shojo 処女 means a female "virgin," and maku 膜 means a "membrane." So this term means literally "virgin membrane."
    • Despite popular belief held in dozens of countries worldwide and through history, a virgin doesn't necessarily have an intact hymen: it can tear and rip apart for countless reasons.
    • Of course 21st century Japanese doctors know this.
    • Even so, shojomaku is still the formal term for "hymen" in Japanese. It's not a slang.
    • By the way, "hymen" comes from the Greek humēn, which means "membrane," and has nothing to do with virgins.
  • chitsuengai 膣円蓋
    Vaginal fornix.
  • shikyuu 子宮
    Uterus. Womb.
    • For the "womb tattoo" trope, see inmon 淫紋, "lewd crest."
  • shikyuukei 子宮頸 (or 子宮頚)
    shikyuukeibu 子宮頸部 (or 子宮頚部)
    Cervix. Cervix uteri. "Uterus neck (region)."
    • gaishikyuukou 外子宮口
      External os. "External uterine orifice."

    • shikyuu chitsubu 子宮腟部
      Vaginal portion of the cervix. Ectocervix.
  • shikyuutai 子宮体
    Corpus. "Body of the uterus."
    • shikyuukuu 子宮腔
      Uterine cavity.
    • shikyuutei 子宮底
      Fundus. "Bottom of the uterus." (this is actually at the top of the uterus, in the same sense the "bottom" of the barrel is actually at the top of the barrel if it's upside-down.)
  • shikyuuheki 子宮壁
    shikyuu no kabe 子宮の壁
    Uterine wall.
    • shikyuu naimaku 子宮内膜

Japanese, like any other language in the world, also has a number of non-technical terms, colloquialisms, slangs, metonyms, vulgar words, and profanities that refer to body parts, specially the genitals.
  • zokugo 俗語
    Colloquialism. Slang.
  • ingo 隠語
    Jargon. Slang.
  • higo 卑語
    Swear words.

      The anus isn't an entrance. (it's an exit.)
  • ari no towatari 蟻の門渡り

あの その ついてるんですか?

    • Do you have a penis?

    Vagina. Pussy. (vulgar.)

      To have sex.

      The suji of an omeko.
    • mansuji マンスジ
    • suji スジ
      A "thin line." (besides dozens of other meanings.)
      Camel toe. (because of the line between the labia.)
    • The word mekosuji is sometimes abbreviated to just suji, and sometimes the adjective and noun switch places:
    • sujimeko スジメコ
      sujiman スジマン
      Camel toe vagina.

Sometimes, manko is attached to words for other body parts used in sexual intercourse. For example:
  • ketsu-manko ケツマンコ
    Ass-pussy. (anal sex.)
    • Originally a gay slang.
  • kuchi-manko 口マンコ
    Mouth-pussy. (oral sex.)

  • te-manko 手マンコ
    Hand-pussy. (handjob.)
  • ashi-manko 足マンコ
    Foot-pussy. (footjob.)


Sometimes, manko, chinko and chinpo can get censored in manga by replacing a kana with a circle ◯. In anime, it gets bleeped instead.

Generally speaking, manko is more likely to be censored because it can also mean "to have sex," manko suru, so it ends up being sexual, while chinko is only genital.

For reference:
  • マ◯コ, マン◯, おマ◯コ, おマン◯
    ま◯こ, まん◯, おま◯こ, おまん◯
    manko, manko, omanko, omanko.
  • チ◯コ, おチ◯コ
    ち◯こ, おち◯こ
    chinko, ochinko.
  • ◯ンポ, チ◯ポ, お◯ンポ, おチ◯ポ
    ◯んぽ, ち◯ぽ, お◯んぽ, おち◯ぽ
    chinpo, chinpo, ochinpo, ochinpo.
  • チン◯, おチン◯
    ちん◯, おちん◯
    chinko, ochinko, or chinpo, ochinpo.
  • ◯んこ, お◯んこ
    ◯ンコ, お◯ンコ
    chinko, ochinko or manko, omanko.

Since chinchin, ochinchin is not considered vulgar—it's children's language—it's normally not censored, but for the sake of completeness:
  • ◯んちん, ち◯ちん, ちん◯ん, ちんち◯
    ◯ンチン, チ◯チン, チン◯ン, チンチ◯
    chinchin, chinchin, chinchin, chinchin
  • お◯んちん, おち◯ちん, おちん◯ん, おちんち◯
    お◯ンチン, おチ◯チン, おチン◯ン, おチンチ◯
    ochinchin, ochinchin, ochinchin, ochinchin

Other Terms

There are dozens of other colloquialisms, analogies and slangs for sexual body parts.

Let's start with the obvious ones for the testicles:
  • tama
    Balls. Ball. (literally.)
    • Also a common name for a pet cat: tama タマ, for dog it's pochi ポチ, "spot."
  • kintama 金玉
    Golden balls.
    • In English, "jewels" are used similarly.
  • tamatama タマタマ
    Balls. (reduplicated plural.)
    • Body terms featuring plurality by reduplication, otete お手手, omeme お目目, are normally used when talking to little children, babies, or in rare cases when someone is being condescending, treating someone else like a baby. In this case, it's because some adult women think tamatama is a cute-ish way of referring to the "balls" of an adult man.

For penis:
  • sao 竿
    Stick. Pole.
  • nikusao 肉竿
    Meat stick.
  • bou
    Stick. Pole.
  • nikubou 肉棒
    Meat stick.

Some words that somehow also mean penis:
  • musuko 息子
    gusoku 愚息
    • Yes, "son," as in, not a daughter. Like "my son" is an innuendo for "my penis."
  • ichimotsu 一物
    "One thing."
    • That's what it means. "One thing."
    • Okay, it can also mean something you have "hidden," like in your chest, a secret, so maybe it comes from that meaning instead.
  • mono モノ (or 物)
    "Thing." (just "thing," like, "his thing," etc.)

Some words that don't mean penis, but get compared a lot:
  • kinoko キノコ (or 茸)
  • banana バナナ
  • sooseeji ソーセージ
  • uin'naa ウインナー
  • ottosei オットセイ
    Fur seal.
  • zou
    Elephant. (because of the trunk.)

  • meimei chinko
    命名 ちん子
    Name: Chinko.
    • ko
      A common suffix in names of girls. Yuuko 優子, Hanako 花子, etc.

Or this religious one:

    In Buddhism, mara is a demon that tempted the Buddha with visions of seducing women.
    (male genital.)
  • kan'non-sama 観音様
    Avalokiteśvara, the bodhisattva. Guanyin.
    (female genital.)

And of course, this militaristic one:
  • katana
    Sword. (penis)
  • saya
    Scabbard. (vagina)
  • The term "vagina" comes from Latin, in which it means "sheath" or the "scabbard" of a sword. Similarly, "gladius," which means "sword," was a term for penis.[Etymology of Abdominal Visceral Terms]

Terms for the female genitalia:
  • awabi
    Abalone. Ear shell. (from the shape of the vulva.)

    Famed instrument/utensil. (an excellent vagina.)
    • Often in the sense of:
    • shimari ga ii 締まりがいい
      "The contraction is good."
      Good at contracting.
    • It can also mean "an excellent penis," apparently.

Specially because Japan has different weird terms for different types of "excellent vaginas," like:
  • mimizu senbiki ミミズ千匹
    One thousand worms. (from the texture of the vaginal walls.)
  • kazu-no-ko tenjou 数の子天井

    Drawstring pouch. (a vagina that tightens entirely.)

Colloquialisms for the "clitoris," kuritorisu クリトリス, include:

      "Delta zone." River delta.
    • A river delta is a landform created by sediment carried by a river toward stagnant water (e.g. a lake, sea, ocean.)
    • It's called "delta" because it's often shaped like a triangle, which's the shape of the Greek letter delta Δ.
    • Colloquially, when a girl wearing a mini-skirt sits on a chair, with her knees facing to you, the space toward her crotch between her thighs and skirt which forms an inverted triangle may be called "delta" in Japanese. [デルタ -, accessed 2019-04-26.]
    • And, similarly, the Mons pubis, which's on the crotch, is also called delta.
  • dote 土手
    • A bank of earth built to stop water, wind.
    • Since this "bank" is an elevated mound of earth, it ends up referring to the pubic mound too.
    • doteman ドテマン
  • moriman モリマン
    From moriagaru 盛り上がる, "to swell," "to bulge."

Other slangs for body parts:

In Japanese, bii-chiku B地区, literally "district B," is a slang for chikubi 乳首, "nipple."

    • A video, if you really want to know: ところてん(テングサ)の作り方 -
    • From the way it's made:
    • tokoroten-shiki ところてん式
      Tokoroten ceremony.
      When someone is naturally pushed out, usually in a bad sense. For example, in Sumo wrestling there was a rule that there could only be five oozeki 大関. But then a sixth one showed up. So the oldest one of the five was "pushed out" to the next rank, yokodzuna 横綱, in order to maintain five oozeki.
    • And finally, what's relevant to this article:
    • tokoroten ところてん
      For a man to have an orgasm from anal alone. (in the sense of "pushing out" the semen from behind.)

In English, the verb "to cum" is a slang for "to orgasm." It's sometimes spelled "to come." Such that "I'm coming" becomes a double entendre. In Japanese, the word for "to come" is kuru 来る, but it doesn't carry this orgasm meaning.

On the other hand, the word iku 行く, "to go," does mean "to orgasm" in Japanese. So "to come" is English and "to go" is Japanese. Why, though? Is this some sort of coincidence or something? Was this on purpose? Anyway, it's normally spelled with katakana, not with kanji:
  • iku イく (or イク)
    To cum. To orgasm.
    • When conjugated, it's homonymous with other words, like:
    • iu 言う
      To say.
    • itta 言った
      [I] said.
    • itta イった
      [I] came.

Terms for orgasm expressions:
  • ikigao イキ顔
    "Cumming face." (from iku.)
  • torogao トロ顔
    "Dozy face" (from torotoro トロトロ, "dozing off.")
  • ahegao アヘ顔
    "Panting face." (from aheahe アヘアヘ, *pant pant*)

Manga: Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai 僕は友達が少ない
  • toku ni tsuinzetto to nigouki ga
    douji ni zecchou wo
    mukaeru toki no hyoujou ga
    mou saikou desu ne

    In particular, the expression [on their faces] when Twin-Z and Machine #2 simultaneously approach climax is the greatest.
  • konna ii ahegao wo kakeru
    sakka wa sousou imasen yo

    There aren't so many artists who can draw ahegao this good.

A lot of Japanese words for sex have kan 姦 in it, including some made-up slangs about some really weird stuff.
  • wakan 和姦
    Consensual sex. "Harmonious sex."
  • goukan 強姦
    Forced sex. "Strength sex." (strength = force.)

  • shikan 視姦
    Ogling. Leering. "Sight sex."
    • Wait a minute, this isn't actually sex!

Some "grotesque," guro グロ, terms that include kan 姦. Obviously these only refer to illustrations, not real people:
  • noukan 脳姦
    "Brain sex." Brain-fucking.
  • gankoukan 眼孔姦
    "Eye socket sex."


The word goukan 強姦 is the formal term for "rape" in Japanese. In the general sense, there's also:
  • okasu 犯す
    To do something you shouldn't do.
    To violate [a law]. To break [a rule].

    To rape [a person].

And this word that won't air on TV:
  • reipu レイプ

It has derived terms like:
  • reipu-me レイプ目
    "Rape eyes." (as in the victim's.)
    • Anime term referring to the "vacant eyes" drawn in hopeless characters.
  • gyaku-reipu 逆レイプ
    "Reverse rape."
    • Same logic as nanpa ナンパ, "to hit on," in which you assume it's about men hitting on women, so gyaku-nanpa 逆ナンパ is "women hitting on men."
    • Abbreviated gyaku-re 逆レ and gyaku-nan 逆ナン respectively.

Also related:
  • chikan 痴漢
    Molestation. (a crime.)
    (male) molester.
  • chijo 痴女
    (female) molester.


In Japanese, counting is done with rather specific, but also confusingly ambiguous counters. For reference, some words that can end up being taken suggestively:

The counter for penises, phallic objects, dildos, pencils, bananas, swords, strands of hair, arms, legs, and other long, cylindrical objects in general is hon 本.
  • ippon 一本
    One [banana].
    • banana ippon バナナ一本
      "One banana."
  • nihon 二本
    Two [bananas].
  • sanbon 三本
    Three [bananas].
  • nanbon 何本
    An unknown number of [bananas].
    How many [bananas]?

But wait, are testicles part of the penis? Because then it's not cylindrical anymore. Well, let's not think deeply about this.

The counter for vaginas, if we're talking about the vagina as an orifices, would be ana 穴, "hole." Just like the mouth, and the anus, are also holes, except when counting it's normally read with its on'yomi, ketsu 穴, because ichi, ni, san are on'yomi while hito-, futa-, mi- are kun'yomi.
  • ikketsu 1穴
    hito-ana 一穴
  • One hole.
  • niketsu 2欠
    futa-ana ニ穴
    Two holes.
  • sanketsu 3穴
    mi-ana 三穴
    Three holes.
  • nanketsu 何穴
    nan'ana 何穴
    An unknown number of holes.
    How many holes?

The counter for ejaculations, shots, gun shots, hits, strikes, punches, etc. is hatsu 発.
  • ippatsu 一発
    One shot. One hit.
  • nihatsu 二発
    Two shots. Two hits.
  • sanpatsu 三発
    Three shots. Three hits.
  • nanpatsu 何発
    An unknown number of shots.
    How many shots?

The counter for sexual intercourse, or the number of times anything at all is done repeatedly, is kai 回.
  • ikkai 一回
    One time. Once.
  • nikai 二回
    Two times. Twice.
  • sankai 三回
    Three times. Thrice.
  • nankai 何回
    An unknown number of times.
    How many times?

The counter for sexual partners, or people in general, is -ri ~人 or nin 人.
  • hitori 一人
    One person.
  • futari 二人
    Two people.
  • san'nin 三人
    Three people.
  • nan'nin 何人
    An unknown number of people.
    How many people.
    • nan'nin mo 何人も
      A lot of people. (more people than you can know.)
    • If this is combined with yaru, you get this ambiguity:
    • nan'nin mo yatta 何人もやった
      [Someone] killed a lot of people.
      [Someone] fucked a lot of people.

In the case of orgies, there's a slang to count the number of people in it: pii ピー, which comes from the katakanization of the English letter P. This P can refer to the "page number" of a book, manga, etc. It can also refer to the number of "players" in a video-game. Which is where the orgy slang probably came from.
  • ichi-pii 1P
    One player. One page.
  • ni-pii 2P
    Two players. Page two.
    • ni-pii karaa 2Pカラー
      Player 2 color. (a different color scheme for a same character, from fighting games where two players can select the same character. E.g. Bowsette blonde and red-hair versions.)
  • san-pii 3P
    Three players. Page three.
    An orgy of 3 people. Threesome.
  • yon-pii 4P
    Four players. Page four.
    An orgy of 4 people. Foursome.
  • go-pii 5P
    Five players. Page five.
    An orgy of 5 people. Fivesome.


Regarding body writing:
  • rakugaki 落書き
    Scribble. Sketch.
  • karada ni rakugaki 体に落書き
    Scribble on body. Body graffiti.

Since you could write virtually anything on someone's body, I'm not going to list everything you could write. Instead, let's focus on the noteworthy things:

Manga: Seitokai Yakuindomo 生徒会役員共 (Chapter 2)
  • omankomaaku おマンコマーク
    mankomaaku マンコマーク
    omekomaaku オメコマーク
    The "pussy mark" refers to a symbol featuring two concentric circles ◎, one vertical line |, and ticks around the outer circle representing pubes.

Note to be confused with:

Anime: Shimoneta to Iu Gainen ga Sonzai Shinai Taikutsu na Sekai 下ネタという概念が存在しない退屈な世界 (Episode 2)
  • hatsudensho no maaku 発電所のマーク
    Power plant mark.
    • Reminder, jika hatsuden 自家発電, "generation electricity at home," is a slang for "masturbation."

  • The asterisk is often likened to the anus, specially of cats, because of its sphincter-like shape.
  • sei no ji 正の字
    The 正 character.

How to write 正, tally mark stroke order.
  • niku
    • The word nikubenki 肉便器, literally "meat urinal," is a degradatory term often used in body writing.
    • However, niku 肉, specially when written on one's forehead, is a reference to the manga Kin'niku-man キン肉マン, and its protagonist, which has niku 肉 written on its forehead.


For reference, the way some words are abbreviated in slangs:
  • pai パイ
    From oppai おっぱい, "breasts."
  • kuri クリ
    From kuritorisu クリトリス, "clitoris."
  • man マン
    From manko マンコ, "vagina."
  • chin チン
    From chinko チンコ, "penis."
  • ona オナ
    nii ニー
    From onanii オナニー, "masturbation."
  • seku セク
    From sekkusu セックス, "sex."
  • peni ペニ
    From penisu ペニス, "penis."
  • jii-supo Gスポ
    From jii supotto Gスポット, "G-spot."

Some examples:
  • furuchin フルチン
    "Full penis." In the sense of being completely naked, as to expose even the penis, no trousers.
  • yokochin 横チン (or ヨコチン)
    "Horizontal penis." In the sense of escaping the underwear horizontally.
    • hamichin ハミチン
      (same meaning.)
    • hamidasu 食み出す
      To protrude. To stick out.
    • hamikin ハミ金 (or ハミキン)
      (same thing but with testicles, kintama, instead.)
  • In Gintama, episode 256, there was a joke anime inside the anime that was called Mantama まんたま, in which most of the world was female.
