In some circles, dick
is the proper name for any phallus
, whether penis
. (I'm told this is correct usage for the queer
community in the San Francisco Bay Area
, and I've seen similar usage in short fiction
In the straight world, a dick is a penis. The distinction between dick and not-dick is: Is it an actual penis?
In the broader sense I describe, the question is simply: Is it intended to be used as a dick? Its material composition doesn't matter.
To refer specifically to "real" dick, one can say "organic dick".
