Today’s word is shirtcocking. (NSFW)

Note that only some of the pics are actually shirtcocking–the second and third, for example. But I think you’ll find them pleasant nonetheless.

I don't think that's shirtcocking. The term was first used (to my knowledge) starting around 2005 to describe men at Burning Man who wander around wearing a shirt and nothing else. The female version of shirtcocking is, naturally, shirtcunting.

I suppose it depends on what you believe the etymology to be. If it derives from 'peacocking', then it would be a unisexual term (and, in fact, I first learned of it from a woman who used the phrase to describe similar pictures of herself). If, on the other hand, the word applies solely to the exposure of cocks, then your suggested female version would be appropriate. Personally, I like shirtcockig better, due to its association with both "peacocking" and "cocky".

50 years from now some linguistics student is going to write their PhD thesis on it. :-)

Maybe if they have rocks big enough to chip a PhD thesis into. Paper will be a forbidden "Carbon Debt" item, along with computers.
