Short Pump, Tuckahoe make list of America’s most “Lewd-Sounding Town Names”

We love these “top cities” lists across the board, and this one made us laugh.

From Estately:

Recently, we here at Estately Real Estate Search published a map and article detailing the oddest town names in each state. Immediately afterwards we were subjected to relentless online criticism for omitting a handful of town names that sounded sexual or obscene in nature. We would like to apologize to everyone we let down, especially the good people from the towns of Intercourse, Blue Balls, Climax, etc.

In order to make things right, we’ve created a new map using only the lewdest, most sexualized town names. To do this, we placed our minds in the gutter and spent days looking over detailed maps and scrutinizing the names of all cities, towns, and unincorporated communities for anything that sounded even remotely sexual or perverse. For the sake of time, we intentionally omitted natural features like Little Dick Lake in Minnesota, as well neighborhoods, such as Mianus in Connecticut. If we’ve left out any names of cities, towns, or unincorporated communities we sincerely apologize and ask that you kindly let us know in the comments. We will update our list accordingly because we intend this to forever be TheMaster List of the Most Obscene Town Names in America.

The full list of Virginia names includes Allison Gap, Assawoman, Bloxom, Brightwood, Bumpass, Fancy Gap, Onancock, Pound, Short Pump, and Tuckahoe.

Check out the full nationwide list here and prepare to snicker like a middle schooler.
