Talking about sexual organs / private parts in Thai is often a taboo topic. For the sake of education, I will teach you.
Male Private Part
Let’s start off with the word penis. In Thai there are few ways to say it.
This is the most common way to say penis. Most people use it in normal everyday vocabulary.
อวัยวะเพศชาย à-wai-wá pâyt chaai
This word is very formal. It literally means male’s sexual organ. You will see this word in magazines and newspapers.
น้องชาย nóng chaai
Literally means little brother. I read this in a magazine about how to take care of your sexual health. This is a very cute and kind way of saying penis.
This literally mean target. You can use it to refer to penis in a less direct way.
This is an impolite way of saying penis. It is very impolite and can be used as a swear word.
Female Private part
Next I want to talk about vagina in Thai. Same with penis, there are many ways to say it. Let’s take a look
This word is paired with จู๋. It’s the most common way of saying vagina.
อวัยวะเพศหญิง à-wai-yá-wá pâyt yĭng
Literally, this word means women’s sexual organ. You don’t hear it much in everyday conversation because it’s too formal.
This is another cute way of saying vagina. When I was a kid that was the only word I used because that’s how my mom referred to it.
น้องสาว nóng săao
Literally means little sister. I have read magazines that call vagina a little sister. It’s a very kind and polite way of saying the word.
Literally means shell fish 🦪. This word can be a swear word. It’s at the same level of rudeness with ควย kuay. This word originates from the similarity of the female sexual organ with a clam.
Other private parts
- testicles : อัณฑะ, ไข่ an-tá, kài
- nipple: หัวนม hŭa nom
- Breasts: หน้าอก nâa òk
- Boobs / tits : นม nom
- Clitoris: คลิตอริส klí-dtor-rít
- asshole: รูก้น, รูตูด roo gôn · roo dtòot
- pubic hair: หมอย mŏi
I recommend, if you are going to talk about private parts in Thai, stick to the words จู๋ jŏo and จิ๋ม jĭm for penis and vagina respectively.
Be careful with the curse words ❗️
