regrettably, to go along with "mangina" and "manhole", many many hits
for "man-pussy" and "man-cunt", with reference to gay men's anatomy.
"man-cunt" also has hits in the sense 'man who is a cunt --
worthless, stupid, etc.'

ick ick ick.  and i say that as a professional linguist (though off-
duty) and a famously earthy person.
