One does not put a hole in a vagina. Vaginas come already equipped with holes and one puts something in them.

I think it's important to use the correct word to describe an action.
Maybe its me just waking up but this made me laugh. Such a clinical description of of the creation of a hole vs already have a hole hahaha...I wonder if this has ever been used in English class somewhere

According to Merriam-Webster:
"2 : to pass through or into by or as if by making a hole."

So not necessarily making a hole, but passing something into an existing hole. Some words have multiple and/or lesser known meanings.

...And by the by:
"There is far to much emphasis on threesomes in poly relationships sometimes. Just as there seems to be far to much emphasis on ass fucking in porn. - Redpepper"

This should read, "there is far TOO much emphasis," and "just as there seems to be far TOO much," in your signature. Since it's a quotation from someone else, though, you could just insert "[sic]" after the problem areas.

@ariakas...

no joke, i'm using that when I get home... She'll be like, "what?" And i'll laugh and say, "nevermind". It's easy to dismiss something like that when you're being perforated, lol LOVE IT!

Hum, I read that as "to pass through or into (something) by (making a hole) or as if by making a hole".

I'm not sure if "as if by making a hole" would qualify for penetration. Reading "vagina perforation" just hurts me, considering the vagina is technically the muscle on the inside, I sincerely don't want to be perforated there.

Anyways, I think we're drifting off-topic here

diction is subjective...so you can't really argue it, because it's a type of style. :/ It's unproductive at best...arguing subjects, grammar, or even diction like you say without coactive definitions is a waste of effort, even if you're bored, imo.
