Five Words That Signify a Foodstuff in One Latin American Country, But a Crude Term for 'Vagina' in Another

Ya gotta love Latinos. Even though we share the same language (except for those retrograde Brazilians and pinche indios), regional variations lead to more than a few snickers, insults and outright laughter when you get a group of us speaking our Spanish. And nowhere is the embarrassment funnier than when talking about our favorite subjects: food and sex, specifically lady bits.

While food double entendres for the male member exist in Latin American Spanish, they are unimaginative (chorizo, salsicha, gallo, etc.), Meanwhile, we've created a lexicon for words that are a foodstuff in one country but mean "cunt"--not just "vagina," not just "yoni," but the crassest, basest word to describe what gals possess--in another.
1. Panocha

Its food version: a delicious New Mexico pudding (shown above) made from sprouted wheat and panocha, the name for unrefined brown sugar in most of Latin America.
Where it's used as a vulgarity: Mexico.

2. Concha

Its food version: the Mexican pan dulce being held by the tongs in the photo.
Where it's used as a vaginal vulgarity: most of Latin America, not so much for the sweetness of the bread but because concha also means "shell," and . . . yeah.

3. Papaya

Its food version: The fleshy fruit loved around the world.
Where it's used as a vaginal vulgarity: Cuba.

4. Cajeta

Its food version: Mexican version of caramel, usually made from goat's milk.
Where it's used as a vaginal vulgarity: Argentina.

5. Arepa

Its food version: A corn dough disc most popular in Colombia and Venezuela.
Where it's used as a vaginal vulgarity: Colombia, but not Venezuela. They're weird--we Mexicans don't call panochas tortillas. I'm not even going to TRY to figure this one out. The others above make some sense, at least.

You guys at the OC Weekly are such pussies and hypocrites. You allow Gustavo to run rampant, insulting many readers. You talk about people being too thin skinned and the freedom we have to be able to express yourself. You talk about how people should not insult people as you let your assclown of an Editor continually attack readers

Then you ban me from the comments.

Its awesome that Gustavo could not hold his own and rather than address the issues raised, OC Weekly had to censor the commentary.

What are you? Communists?

This is how you "win" Gustavo? What a pussy that can't hold his own

i've heard "concha" used as a friendly nickname between latino gay men, especially drag queens. YMMV.

Panocha it not a vulgarity in Mexico you got that one wrong, I've been in almost all states in Mexico and everybody calls panocha their very popular brown sugar endulzante, but it is a vulagarity in colorado, new Mexico, Arizona and Texas for some.

What about bizcocho? It showed up on a vocabulary list in one of my Spanish classes, and someone told me once to avoid saying it unless I want to be misunderstood, hah.

I have a word we use in OC for "Vagina" that you left out. Its "GUSTAVO."

Funny you say that because if I were to yell that in a church en el rancho, I'd be marked for life--explain that?

Agree with Flaco - it is not all of Mexico.  En mi rancho in the sierra, panocha is as innocent a word as they come.   Not until we hit Monterrey did we realize "uhoh, it means something else here."
