Introducing the Camel Toe

Yoga pants always create great camel toe possibilities!

Although the name suggests exotic scenes of deserts and treks into the unknown, the camel toes we are interested in are much sexier. Basically, a camel toe appears when clothing is stretched tightly around female sexual organs.

More specifically, the camel toe consists of the "labia majora" - the outer part of a woman's vagina. The classic camel toe involves sexy tight-fitting swimsuits which show every curve of the wearer's anatomy. So it's understandable why guys should find them so hard to resist.

How Did the Camel Toe Get Its Name?

The origins of the camel toe are actually a bit of a mystery. If you look closely at most camel toes, you may well see that they resemble the toes of a camel, but you could probably imagine many other resemblances.

However, the history of camel toes is pretty well settled. For most of history, women tended to wear looser fitting outfits like robes or dresses, but this all changed from the 19th century. As trousers and shorts started to be more common (followed by the bikini and things like yoga pants), people started to notice camel toes all over the place, and a sexy niche was created. Nowadays, whole web sites are devoted to spotting celebrity camel toes.

How to Tell the Difference Between a Camel Toe and a Whale Tail

These two terms should be part of the lexicon of every horny guy, and there's an important difference between them. On one hand, as we've seen, the camel toe refers to the labia majora being visible underneath clothing.

On the other, the "whale tail" occurs when thongs or other clothing slides up into the buttocks. Sometimes, you'll get a glimpse of both sexy sights, but as far as we can tell, there's no word for that combination, yet.

Is There Such a Thing As a Male Camel Toe?

While camel toes are traditionally identified with women, the same phenomenon applies to guys as well. In fact, there are probably tens of different terms for the way that tight clothing shows off a guy's endowment. From lunchboxes to bulges or "smugglers" in Australia, guys have plenty of ways to refer to their sexual organs. And sometimes, the term camel toe is even applied to guys as well, which only seems fair.
