"8. in sexual contexts [20C+ use is usu. US black].”
      (a) the [vulva]… fig. used as female sexuality.

"Usu. US black” is certainly true, in my experience. It’s a clip of _that
good stuff_ , a quasi-euphemistic alternate term for _pussy_. However, it
appears to be breaking the bonds of race, sex, and nationality..

Here’s an instance of its use by a black Englishwoman:

“He sat next to me and started touching my stuff.”


Also, as is the case with _tap that ass_, the term has clearly lost its
former level-10 obscenity.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
