Oh no. In fact I think it is very funny! But "vaca" (cow in portuguese) is a bad and very offensive word for women...

I don't like Playboy magazine, but I think that there are some photographers here interested in this kind of picture...

Pornography is easy, but in other hand, taking nude pictures is very difficult, isn't it...

oh yes, nudes and pornography are quite different.
haven't tried either of them yet :)
i'm not sure if "playboy" is a pornographic magazine though.. isn't it more like an "entertainment" magazine with lots of articles on various issues ??
ok maybe we should become members of playboy.com and then discuss this :)


about "vaca" , just out of curiosity, why is it an offensive word for women?? is it because it might lead to a comparison between cows and women ?( no offence intended to any women reading this post, i'm just curious about this)

Hi guys,
just having some extra time, so I decide to surf in the forums.. and I came across this discussion and I must admit I'm laughing to deth here, in the middle of a cibercaffe, and lots of strange people are looking at me now, thinking "poor girl"...

Oh... So many beautiful candidates for this contest :)

Sohrab, if you say "vaca" to a woman, at least in Argentina, you are meaning that she is reeeeaaaallly fat, but very very fat. And maybe you can find a strange reaction, not a very nice, may I say...

keep going!
Marisa

From the perspective of the country that gave the world Playboy magazine, which is every teenage boys' delight, I might add, the term "ass" is of special significance. Threfore, I believe Sohrab's images fit the bill precisely, though I doubt the folks at Playboy would find his versions of ass at all inspiring. But this conversation is priceless. Thanks for a good laugh everyone!

hello sohrab and everybody :)
i΄ve made a search in my dictionaires of etimology but haven,t found any reference for 'vaca' so far, unfortunaly.
perhaps we should ask for an italian speaker to help us, coz in italian the meanings are exactly the same, and considering brasil was also colonized by italians, the very roots of the meaning might be there.
what i know is that usually offensive words/expressions (in many many languages in the western) are related to animals and/or the sexual organs and/or products of the body, that is, sperm, urine, faeces. also, in some languages (and you can exchange language for culture), these words/expressions are used with religious words too.
hope my answer has enlighten something.
cheers,
Isabel

Default jajajajaja!

nice thread started by Bruno and humorous contributions from the TErs!!!

Maru

Vaca in Paraguay is referred to a woman which is certainly fat and has no "sex appeal to men".

It is a very bad word when used in that context.
Also vaca means "cow" and that is also well known...


Sohrab
Your photos are great, and I guess you can participate with them with winning chances!

;)

Jorrit

Welcome back, you k*nky boy always looking for dirty pictures!
were have you been?
