"Clit" is a commonly heard term. Also the truly poetic "little man in the
boat." I think the Asiatic reference is the Pearl of the Jade Gate.

There are common names for most body parts but not all.
Is there one for clitoris? It sounds too medical for poetic use, and
'bump' which I used in a poem, seems too clunky.
