Where does gooch come from?
Gooch is a surname of Celtic origin, borne by the likes of the character Stephanie Gooch (Kate Micucci) on the 2000s sitcom Scrubs. The Gooch was also the nickname of a bully on the 1970–80s sitcom Diff’rent Strokes.
But we know why you’re here. The origin of gooch as slang for the perineum—also known as the taint, grundle, or chode—isn’t exactly clear, but it’s entered on Urban Dictionary by 2002 and shortly after appeared in Usenet groups about shaving. You gotta be careful when there’s a razor in the gooch area. Gooch may riff on coochie, slang for “vagina.”
We were introduced to a very different gooch in 2005 when MTV’s Laguna Beach featured gooch as local slang for “really good.” This gooch is, apparently, a shortened version of the luxury brand Gucci. So, yeah, we guess you can have a gooch gooch.

When it comes to referring to the perineum, you’ve got a lot of slang options. Gooch is one of them, and potentially the funniest. (Well, they’re all pretty funny)

It’s also a surprisingly popular name for pets. That poor turtle.

The fashion world hasn’t gone ungooched either: Clothing brand Gooch Apparel keeps the SoCal gooch alive. They launched their line of surf and skate wear in Laguna Beach in 2013.
But outside of the OC, gooch is mostly just used as a humorous term for perineum–except funnier to say, and easier to spell.
