Camel toe

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Camel toe, or cameltoe, is slang for when the outline of a woman's labia majora is seen in tightly fitting clothes.[1][2][3] The male equivalent of cameltoe is mooseknuckle.[4] It is called a "camel toe" because of how the woman's labia outline is similar to that of a camel's toe.

Camel toe happens as a result of wearing tight-fitting clothes, such as shorts, leggings or swimwear.[5]
