Please note! The following question contains words from what is known as 'adult language'.

I recently read a question in here, regarding swear words from ancient egypt. I did think 'Wow, can you ask about that too?'
Then I came to think of a problem I have myself. I am writing a novel, which contains a couple of chapters which are quite erotic. Well, all right, it is actually very close to direct pornography.
The thing is, English is not my native language, but I try to use this language anyway, since it is beyond question the most common language worldwide.
The problem is, I can not find any everyday english words for female genitals. Searching the internet gives obscure slang-like words, direct vulgar and degrading words, and then of course the latin ones.
Neither fit good in the story.
If you'll pardon me for being a little blunt, this is a list of the words I need. It's latin, and in paranthesis my own try (which is in at least some cases not very good):

Nates (Buttocks)
Anus (butthole)
Mons pubis (no idea!)
Vulva (pussy?)
Labia ([pussy] lips)
Vagina (well, I guess here 'vigina' is OK)
Urethral orfice (Peehole)
Clitoris ('Clitoris' is OK here, I think)

If my suggestions are wrong, or does not work well, the feel free to correct me and give your own suggestions.
Thank you in advance.

Tl;dr; For a novel I'm writing, containing adult material, I am looking for everyday non-latin, non-vulgar English words for different parts of female genitals.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • I'd say nates is hopelessly outdated anyway, but the full OED explicitly identifies it as Chiefly Anatomy and Medicine, so it's probably not suitable for your context. Whatever - any and all suggestions given here would essentially be just different people's opinions. There are no "right" answers. – FumbleFingers Oct 9 '18 at 16:40
