Coño is the Spanish slang term for female genitals. It would be the equivalent of cunt, but it sounds a lot more acceptable in Spanish than in English. While it’s not a word that you would use in a formal environment, it is very much accepted in casual conversations as an exclamation. It can be used in an incredible range of situations and can express almost anything: Admiration, wonder, praise, surprise, disgust, pain, etc.. Some examples:
– ¡Coño, qué cerveza! (admiration)
– ¡Coño!, me he pillado la mano. (pain)
– ¡Coño, deja de molestar! (anger)
Please note that coño sounds a lot stronger when used to designate the female genitals.
