When it comes to sex, even countries that technically speak the same language will have specialized vocabularies regarding things sexual, and have different meanings for words that might not have any sexual connotations in another country. Since I now live in Colombia, I thought some might enjoy some of the terms I have seen used, particularly among the chicas who advertise their services on internet. If you need examples, do a google search on ‘prepagos medellin’ just for starters.
Of course, you can use one of the online translators, and for many, if not most words, you’ll get a pretty accurate translation. ‘Pechos,’ for example, translates as ‘breasts,’ as does ‘tetas’ and ‘senos.’ But if you were to type in ‘tetona,’ for example, you would get nothing. But the ‘ona’ ending means big. You get the idea. You also won’t find ‘juegeticos’ with the translator, but it’s a variation on the word ‘jugete,’ which means ‘toy.’ A ‘jugetico’ is a little toy.
One of the funnier ones I have run across is the word ‘carita.’ Literally, this translates as ‘kingfish.’ What it means, though, is simply ‘face,’ being a variation of ‘cara.’ ‘Paisa’ and ‘paisita’ both mean a person from the northwestern area of Colombia, with ‘paisita’ usually meaning a female.
‘Morbosa’ is another word you’ll see which doesn’t really translate well. Literally, it means ‘morbid,’ but in the context of a sexual ad, it means something more like ‘nasty.’ ‘Candiente’ usually means ‘glowing, but in context means something more like ‘red-hot.’
You may see descriptions like ‘piernona’ or ‘nalgona.’ ‘Piernas’ mean ‘legs’ and ‘nalgas’ means ‘buttocks.’ The ‘ona’ ending simply means they are large, or long. Since I mentioned google earlier, the google translate (from Spanish to English) works pretty well. It’s not perfect, but computer translations have come a long way and you can at least get a fair idea of what’s being offered.
Due to the nature of THIS blog, I can’t get nearly as graphic as the advertisements on the other websites get. Some of the girls will be very explicit and raunchy, while others will present themselves as classy escorts who cater to executives and such. Don’t let that put you off. If you drive a truck they’ll still be happy to take your money.
I have been living in Spanish speaking countries for 12 years now, and I have found that there is always more to learn I certainly learned quite a bit browsing these websites. There are less pleasant ways to learn.
