Vagina Poll

I'm writing a femslash fic, and I have a question about vocabulary. I know everyone's always worried about what to call a cock or an arse, but now I'm wondering what to call the female bits. Pussy sounds trashy, cunt too stark and vulgar, folds too romance novel-y (the same with her heat), and vagina too clinical. Does anyone else have any suggestions? Do any of these sound okay to you? The POV is from teenage girl who is just a little bit inexperienced and probably isn't totally comfortable saying these things out loud. (This isn't for dialogue, but I wanted the vocabulary to reflect her character...although I might move the POV back a bit so I won't have to worry about that so much.)

Poll #1113031 Vagina Poll

Which of these sounds the least ridiculous/scary/cheesy? (Check all that apply)

vagina
4(21.1%)
pussy
6(31.6%)
heat
1(5.3%)
cunt
1(5.3%)
hole
1(5.3%)
folds
1(5.3%)

What do you prefer to call it (when you're writing or reading)?



Also - and this is totally unrelated to fan fiction at all - today at work we suddenly heard this huge boom and then the power went out. My boss said it sounded like the transformer, and we went out to the lot behind the store to check. Apparently a squirrel had climbed the wrong "tree" and ended up electrocuted. You could still see him on the ground. So of course I did the girl "I love fluffy animals" thing and was like, "OMG, did it hurt him? Did he feel it? Was he scared? What about his family? What will his babies do when he doesn't come home?!" and my co-worker, the only male there, was like, "It's okay, he didn't feel it, he's in a better place." And I feel slightly ridiculous, but of course I'm still worried about this hypothetical squirrel family.
