I think you're forgetting お尻, one of the two reasons why so many more western women appear in Japan's lingerie ads.



Holy crap, you're right. I feel like an ass. :wink:

You know, I think this one may be because I use "naka" for all sorts of things, so the *o*naka sticks out, but I can't think of a time I've used "shiri" when it wasn't as "*o*shiri. Hm.

Wow.

(Well, of course there is the mother-speak "ochinchin" but...)
