    Etymology of the word " 'taint"

    Where did this word come from to refer to the perineal area between the legs?

    Men and women both have a 'taint I assume. But who or what made this word " 'taint" colloquial for the hurting place in cycling?

    Wandering minds need to know...

    i always said " 't ain't the front, and 't ain't the back." but that is a good one too ^^
    As far as i know, it's illegal to wear spandex or lycra when not on a bicycle or outside of 10 feet from the one you were riding. please, check your state laws.

    From the definition given to me long ago not to be repeated here, woman do not have a taint. Brooklyn rider figure that out on your own.

    Actually, someone in this thread said that women don't have them, but back in the late 60's women were the only ones I heard the term used for.

    'tain't p***y, 'tain't a-hole, jus' 'tain't.

    Same in the 80's. That's how my crusty old 20yr Navy vet uncle explained it to me one day while we were fishing and he was 'structing me about chics (I was a 15 or so). However, his version went:

    "t'ain't *****, t'aint ******* neither, taint the right spot t'all"

    He's the same one who mentioned with a totally deadpan face at a big family holiday dinner that he'd been to the optometrist that afternoon because he needed a new part of testicles. My grandmother almost choked...
