Pubic hair is more commonly referred to as “pubes,” which is still something that people feel the need to whisper. Here are some of the weirdest ones I found that I just couldn’t get over: Have you ever heard the phrase "Does the carpet match the drapes?
We all need to get a little more comfortable with talking about our bodies and body parts, you guys. There are so many slang terms for every body part and sexual action known to man. " Yeah, it's talking about if your pubic hair matches your natural hair color.
Cockney rhyming slang then developed as a secret language of the London underworld from the 1850s, when villains used the coded speech to confuse police and eavesdroppers.
The final word of the substitute phrase rhymes with the word it replaces, for example the cockney rhyming slang for the word 'look' is 'butcher's hook'.
Commonly only the first word of the rhyming slang is used, for example, 'butchers' means 'look', whereby the original meaning can be difficult to guess, and in many cases these single slang words are now widely used by people who are unaware of the cockney-rhyming origins.
A Scandinavian origin has been proposed (compare, for example, Norwegian slengenavn, which means "nickname"), but is discounted by the Oxford English Dictionary based on "date and early associations".
Jonathan Green however agrees with the possibility of a Scandinavian origin, suggesting the same root as that of sling, which means "to throw", and noting that slang is a thrown language - a quick, honest way to make your point.
