  • NY Times wrote last month:

    "It began on Feb. 12, 2006, when viewers of the ABC series “Grey’s Anatomy�? heard the character Miranda Bailey, a pregnant doctor who had gone into labor, admonish a male intern, “Stop looking at my vajayjay.�?

    The line sprang from an executive producer’s need to mollify standards and practices executives who wanted the script to include fewer mentions of the word vagina.

    The scene, however, had the unintended effect of catapulting vajayjay (also written va-jay-jay) into mainstream speech. Fans of “Grey’s Anatomy�? expressed their approval of the word on message boards and blogs."

    Edit: bilby, thanks for posting. I didn't mean that comment to sound petulant. I just thought that link was here and it isn't.
