10 Suggestive Names of Real Locations Worldwide — Part 8: Results of Lascivious Thoughts 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 8: Results of Lascivious Thoughts Version

This article is the eighth 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 the results of lascivious thoughts.

Without further ado so that you do not feel pent up and on the edge, let us begin — and the locations are listed in this article in alphabetical order…

1. Blue Ball, Pennsylvania, United States

Starting off with the infamous town in what is known as Pennsylvania Dutch Country in East Earl Township in Lancaster County, Blue Ball was originally known as Earl Town before the name was changed in 1833 after the builder and owner of a small building at the intersection of two Native American trails “hung a blue ball out front and called it ‘The Sign of the Blue Ball’”, according to this article written by

2. Bohners Lake, Wisconsin

Even funnier than the thought of a lake being formed as the result of incessant dripping caused by a “boner” as a result of lascivious thoughts is that one of the thoroughfares in Bohners Lake is Dyer Lake Road, which intersex with a number of streets — but apparently, not much of that is happening if the situation is that dire in this area in racy Racine County in southeastern Wisconsin.

3. Finger Lakes, New York, United States

Finger Lakes is a region of the state of New York which is comprised of eleven narrow lakes that resemble fingers when viewed from the sky. The area is especially known for its wines, beers, and — er — hard ciders. Although people have been known to have some wet and wild fun in the Finger Lakes region, plenty of activities are available to do for adults and kids of all ages.

4. Fingerville, South Carolina, United States

Speaking of fingering, Joseph Finger was a native of Lincolnton, North Carolina who moved to this location in upper Spartanburg County in upstate South Carolina to build a cotton mill; and Fingerville was named after him. As for how two nearby communities named Arrowwood and Brown Arrow got their names — well…that will be left to your imagination.

5. Hardup, Utah, United States

You might be hard up to find this ghost town in Box Elder County south of Cedar Creek in northwestern Utah near the border which this state shares with Idaho — and the only attribution of the name Hardup is that it “was apparently named by some cowboy without a girlfriend”, according to this article written by Pat Bagley for The Salt Lake Tribune. “He may have camped in Blue John Canyon (Wayne), which was named for an outlaw with one blue and one brown eye. In any case, both are a long way from Shag Hollow (Beaver) which is just a hop from Long Lick Mountain.“ No wonder the unidentified cowboy was hard up…

6. North Pole, Alaska, United States

Admittedly, what comes to the minds of many people is Christmas with regard to the community of North Pole in central Alaska and not anything suggestive — and what time of the year can be any better to highlight North Pole than now? Although it is nowhere near any of the actual North Poles of our planet, you will find the largest fiberglass statue of Santa Claus erected outside of a gift shop called Santa Claus House, which is open all year round — except, ironically, for Christmas Day and other holidays. Additionally, you can have Christmas letters, cards, and greetings postmarked at the branch of the United States Post Office in this small city — to the delight of countless children and other loved ones who receive a letter from jolly old Saint Nicholas at the North Pole — so get whatever smut you have in your eye to yourself.

7. Smut Eye, Alabama, United States

Well, so much for keeping the smut in your eye to yourself. The unincorporated community of Smut Eye is located southeast of the city of Montgomery in Bullock County in the state of Alabama. Two accounts are given for the origin of the name — both of which deal with a blacksmith named George Pope: one is that the shop was so dirty that men went home with smut in their eyes; and the other is that the face of the blacksmith was always covered with so much smut that all one could see was the whites of his eyes. In both accounts, smut is a word for soot and not pornographic material, as he would look rather strange having photographs of a nude Miss December from a magazine — remember those? — plastered all over his face.

8. Wankers Corner, Stafford, Oregon, United States

Supposedly named after the Wanker family — who moved to the Stafford area of Clackamas County in northwestern Oregon in 1895 and purchased a tract of land on which they built a store and tavern — Wankers Corner is located only eleven miles due south of Portland. The Wankers Corner Saloon & Café still exists to this day; but it moved from its original location to a larger building in nearby Wilsonville — possibly because the owners wanted to take things in their own hands, shake things up, and see what comes; but that is a master debate for another time.

9. Wetmore, Colorado, United States

The tiny unincorporated community of Wetmore is located approximately 30 miles west of Pueblo — or almost 54 miles southwest of the official headquarters of BoardingArea in Colorado Springs, which is owned by a guy who is known to be Randy — in Custer County in the state of Colorado on the Frontier Pathways National Scenic Byway at the edge of the Wet Mountains. If being near large openings gets you all excited, consider visiting the Royal Gorge Bridge & Park — or perhaps either Dakota Hot Springs or Desert Reef Hot Springs will get you all hot and wet.

10. Wetwang, Driffield, United Kingdom

Dripping in history which is not exactly hard core, Wetwang is a village and civil parish in the low hills of Yorkshire Wolds in the East Riding of Yorkshire in northeastern England in the United Kingdom. It was either named from the Old Norse vaett-vangr, which purportedly translates into ”field for the trial of a legal action”; or it was the “Wet Field” compared to the nearby dry field at Driffield. Whichever definition is preferred, playing the field is probably best advised to relieve oneself of this Wetwang.


I have actually been to North Pole in Alaska. If you are really into the Christmas spirit and you find yourself in central Alaska, definitely consider visiting that small city.

I have also driven by the Finger Lakes region of New York on my way to Buffalo, Rochester, and other destinations of the western part of the state — but I should one day actually visit places which are located in that region to explore them.

If while reading this article you felt backed up about thinking that so many more entries were missing and long overdue, 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.

Anyway, I am relieved to have let it all out in this article — no, I am not going to smoke a cigarette as a celebration — but if you have not had enough in the meantime, please be sure to read the other articles in this series:

    Let’s not forget the town of Dildo, Newfoundland. Better social distance and wear a mask properly up there, or else be prepared to be arrested by the Dildo police !
