10 Suggestive Names of Real Locations Worldwide — Part 5: Intimate Acts Version

Have you ever been to a place somewhere in this wonderful world in which we live which has a name that seems suggestive — or perhaps less than wholesome? In locations outside of the country where you are based, the names of locations may seem to have a different meaning to you than the actual origin — but when those strange names are found in the same country as yours, they may tend to have you scratching your head.

10 Suggestive Names of Real Locations Worldwide — Part 5: Intimate Acts Version

This article is the fifth in a series which give examples of suggestive names of real locations around the world; and as a form of proof that they actually exist, an interactive Google map is included with each entry — along with a brief description of the highlighted location — and the main focus of this article is acts which are considered to be sexual and intimate.

Without further ado, let us unzip this article and begin — and the locations are listed in this article in alphabetical order…

1. Bangs, Texas, United States

You cannot get any deeper into the center of Texas than Bangs, which was officially incorporated in 1915 and is located in Brown County. It was named after a printer named Samuel Bangs — but no one apparently seemed to ask the inappropriate question of exactly who Samuel Bangs.

2. Blowhard, Victoria, Australia

Located 130 kilometers northwest of Melbourne in southeastern Australia, Blowhard has a population of fewer than 100 residents and was once a prominent mining area, which explains the ore-al fixation of the founders of this rural locality. They supposedly had to blow hard to prove their mettle.

3. Ballplay, Alabama, United States

Near the bank of the Coosa River is Ballplay, which is located in Etowah County in northeastern Alabama. This unincorporated community was purportedly named because Native American people would play stickball at the site in order to resolve disputes between tribes — but was it also named for one of the intimate ways in which some of the women would resolve disputes with their men?

4. Bangor, Maine, United States

Incorporated on Wednesday, February 12, 1834, the city of Bangor was initially founded in southern Maine in 1791 and is currently the seat of Penobscot County and the third most populous city in the state. As an homage to its focus on the lumber industry, a statue of Paul Bunyan towers at 31 feet tall. If you want to know how to pronounce the name of this city, you can refer to this short video which was created in 2006 by local owners of businesses — but know that the name is definitely not pronounced bang her.

5. Humptulips, Washington, United States

Translating to English as hard to pole from the local Native American language of the Chehalis tribe, Humptulips is located in Grays Harbor County in western Washington state, as explained by this article written by Margo Greenman of GraysHarbor Talk: “This term refers to the difficulty in traveling the river by boat. The Humptulips River was hard to pole canoes up and down stream, caused by downed timber that lined the banks of this beautiful river. While few people today use poles to push themselves up and down the river, it remains rugged, hearty and beautiful.” Debatable is which is actually more suggestive: the name Humptulips — or its translation to English — or perhaps the name describes someone who is really, really passionate about a certain former logo of United Airlines?

6. Lay, Colorado, United States

The official Internet web site of Moffat County in northwestern Colorado states the following about Lay: “Remaining fragments of streets are quiet now and the few remaining original buildings have only a few contemporary homes scattered around them. Motorists speeding along the present Highway 40 aren’t likely to take more than a glancing take of what was once a bustling community.” Dinosaur National Monument is located approximately one hour west of Lay; and the city of Steamboat Springs is located slightly greater than one hour east of Lay with plenty to see, do, eat, drink, and stay. If you really want to get Lay-ed, visit this place — but you may not want to allot an entire day of your time here.

7. Miccosukee, Florida, United States

Northern Leon County — just south of the border which Georgia shares with Florida — is where Miccosukee is located; and it was settled by Native American members of the Miccosukee tribe. At one time, Miccosukee was a part of the state of Muskogee. It was purportedly the largest town in Florida back in 1818, when Andrew Jackson was blamed for burning down greater than 300 homes during the First Seminole War in April of that year, which really sukee-d. Forget the suggestive name — someone might have told Andrew Jackson, “Youcosukee somewhere else.”

8. Three Way, Arizona, United States

Located in Greenlee County in southeastern Arizona near the border it shares with New Mexico, Three Way is little more than an intersection of United States Highway 191, Arizona State Highway 75, and Arizona State Highway 78 near the Gila River. The population is likely small enough that a “three way” would probably involve the majority of the residents of this unincorporated community. Talk about one way of incorporating a community.

9. Threeway, Virginia, United States

Ironically, the unincorporated community of Threeway is located near Cople Parish in Westmoreland County in northeastern Virginia not far from the Potomac River. Parish the thought that the word couple might have been misspelled as Cople, because how does a couple engage in a “three way” if no one else is around?

10. Tightsqueeze, Virginia, United States

Virginia must really be for lovers, as this second entry from the state had to be Tightsqueeze-d into this article. Located along United States Highway 29 in Pittsylvania County, this unincorporated community got its name due to two buildings which were constructed close to a road which connected Danville and Chatham during the 19th century. The general store of W. H. Colbert was built close enough to the dirt road in 1870 that women could go straight from their carriages onto the porch of the store without getting muddy or dusty.


If while reading this article you were thinking that so many more entries were missing, know that dozens more examples of locations with suggestive names will be considered for future articles here at The Gate — but in the meantime, please feel free to offer suggestions of your own in the Comments section below.

By the way, if you were wondering about the suggestive photograph at the top of this article…

…it is simply a closeup of the elbow of a willing model; and then the photograph was rotated upside down.
