*Word of the Day: Fourchette. "Fourchette" has 2 very specific meanings. One is the stitched side area of a glove than runs in between the "trank," or top and bottom portion with the finger cutouts. The other is "a thin fold of skin at the back of the vulva." Right below about where one would stick it in. As if you needed any more reason to think of sex every time you put on a pair of gloves.
