It's called a kaziff.

Kaziff you didn't have it, your insides would fall out.

Perineum, but also baunch, which is why the period between Christmas and New Year's Day is baunchmas.

And here I thought it was choad.

On women, it's called the Separation of Powers.

I've heard this called "the gooch."

knave, a chode/choad is a short'n'stubby penis. So chodes are for boys only, while we all have a taint.

As far as the perineum goes, I've also heard it called the nacho. Because it's nacho front, nacho back.

The technical term is grundle (although tuppy is also acceptable).

My dad used to always say it was called that because, and I quote, "It taint yer ass and it taint yer balls."

Mrs Zera says "tate", but she has no point of reference

I say "taint" cause it " 'taint your nuts and it 'taint your balls "

Let's play our game...

In support of knave:
Wiki referenced above; "Common nicknames for the area include choad, taint, and grundle."

In support of neda:
Dictionary.com agrees with you.

There are varying levels of dissent amongst the Urban Dictionary crowd.

And finally, Wiki once again clears it up for us.

See? We're all a little bit right when it comes to chodes and taints! Best answers for everyone!

Biffin bridge (as in when your balls 'biff' off it.)

I might be imagining things, but I got the impression that the whole routine was about goatse.cx. When that site hit the scene in the late 90's, among the crowd I was hanging it was widely referred to as "the taint." But maybe I'm just insane?

Humorous scene in the Showtime series Weeds: Two of the main characters are sitting in the living room, watching lesbian porn. The girls turn their backsides to the camera, and the two guys begin talking about the meaning of the term "taint". After going back and forth about it, they interrupt the maid, who's more than a little disgusted by both the discussion, and what's on the TV.

"[maid's name], what's the area called between the dick and the asshole."

She thinks a moment, and then responds: "The coffee table."

I always thought the "perineum" was the bit of flesh that divides one's nosehole into two nostrils. As in, "his perineum dissolved due to excessive cocaine usage."

septum.

Any woman who has given birth vaginally knows the stretch from vagina to anus is the perineum. If you don't understand why, don't ask.
