Most Personal Box

When a female character uses her vagina as a container for something that has no business in there.

Trope
Exactly what it says on the tin.

Off the top of my head:

In the Texas Chainsaw Reboot, the girl who had escaped the Hewitts gets picked up by the group of main protagonists. Her clothes are ragged, and she is covered in blood, and she is to traumatized to really talk about what's going on, she just wants to get the hell away. She starts to relax once she gets in the car, until she realizes they are driving back into Hewitt territory. She starts to freak out, calms down, then lifts her skirt and reaches between her legs..... to reveal a pistol, which she puts in her mouth, and kills herself with.

In Machete, the girl the Federales are trying to rescue claims it's too hot for clothes when rescued. After being carried, naked downstairs, she betrays Machete, stabbing him in the leg with his own... er, machete. As he is lying confused on the floor, she parts her legs, reaches between them, struggles for a bit... before producing a cell phone.

Drug smuggling is more often depicted as mules swallowing balloons of drugs to pass later, but it's not unheard of for the mule to be a girl, and the drugs to be carried in her vagina to their destination.

I know it's got to have happened outside of these three examples, and I'm sure it can be cleaned up, but I couldn't find a trope in existence for this particular situation yet. What I had in mind was less of it's humorous applications, and more of when it's used for shock of the characters as well as the audience.

    Disregard this, it's a glitch

    An episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm during Richard Lewis' in-show kidney problems revolved around his nurse hiding things in her unusually large vagina.

    ETA: The object she was accused of hiding in her large vagina were an autographed baseball and a cellphone.

    To whoever originally posted the first comment on this page, I got that one glitch where a comment is added in two places. In other words your comment was overwritten due to a bug. Sorry about that.

    It was such a nice comment. :( And you killed it. Don't you feel bad at all?

    Anywho, the comment was that Our Super Strict Language Policy may object to this trope. Or not, I dunno.

    Also, compare Victorias Secret Compartment and Ass Shove.

    Also, Laura does this to hide a dildo from Sixx in a Collar 6 guest strip. Especially glaring, seeing how dildos are not designed to go all the way inside... but then again, Laura is a masochist.

    Victorias Really Secret Compartment, Her Other Purse, Pocket In Her Panties, Where the Sun Dont Shine?

    I'm not sold on the current title, I thing we can find one that's a little more evocative while still being G-PG.

    Just wanted to point out that the current title is not even remotely Exactly What It Says On The Tin. I don't have a problem with that fact, just saying we should remove the tag.

    I submit the following joke. I first heard it well before Diana became a princess (possibly on Dave Allen at Large) but it still applies to this subject. I've heard David Letterman cite it via Orphaned Punchline a few times lately.
    The Queen and Princess Di are out for a Sunday drive. They are pulled over by bandits who demand their jewelry. When they see they aren't wearing any, the bandits just take their Bentley and drive off.
    As the Queen and Di are walking back to Buckingham Palace, the Queen says, "Diana, dear thing, I know when we left the Palace this morning you were wearing your wedding ring. Where is it?"
    Diana replied, "Mum, when I saw those terrible men coming, I hid it in my privates. By the way, I could have sworn that you were wearing your tiara when we left this morning."
    The Queen says, "Yes, I was. But when I saw those bad men, I did the same thing you did with your ring."
    After they walk in silence for about a mile, the Queen starts laughing.
    Diana is surprised. "Mum, this is a terrible situation, how can you be laughing?"
    "Well," says her Majesty, stifling a giggle, "I was just thinking. If Princess Margaret had been with us, we could have saved the Bentley."

    In one of the Modesty Blaise novels, Modesty smuggles a tracking device into a prison camp in this fashion.

    SF novel I have long since forgotten the title of, our hero is infiltrating some Nebulous Organization Of Evil, and I remember the woman doesn't have the right coloration to wear bright red but does anyway because it's the organization's status color (hope that triggers someone's memory...) Anyhow, our hero has sex with the woman, and she insists on "back door action" as she's "saving the other one for marriage." In reality, she's carrying a tracking device in her vagina.

    Might not count, since the object is designed to be carried in the vagina. Then again, how many objects (besides, ahem, feminine hygiene products) are designed to be held there in normal use? Your call.

    • In Snow Crash, YT keeps her "dentata" in her vagina. A play on Vagina Dentata, or "toothed vagina," the dentata is actually an anti-rape device that injects a powerful sedative into the attacker's penis.
  • August 23, 2011
    PapercutChainsaw
    ^ A similar device has been prototyped in Real Life. Instead of injecting a sedative, however, the device is just designed to latch on, get stuck, and cause a lot of pain. It's really more of a deterrent than a preventative.

    • In an episode of House, the team suspect their patient is being poisoned by his wife. After a failed search of her belongings and person, House tries to search her vagina, since its the only place they haven't looked.

    Machete "saved" a woman from the Big Bad's den, but she betrayed her by using his own BFS against him. Then she took out a FUCKING CELLPHONE inside her vagina to update Torres of Machete's capture.

    This is Victorias Secret Compartment. Tropes Are Flexible, so there's reason why that trope can't cover this one, just with a different part of female anatomy.
  • August 24, 2011

    I like "Her Other Purse" as a title, since it's both funny and a little more indicative of the trope.

    See also Ass Shove.

    In the NSFW Viral Video "Hanky Panky," performance artist Ursula Martinez does a magic trick/striptease in which she makes a red hankie disappear, then reveals it in her jacket. She removes the jacket. Makes it disappear again, reveals it in her skirt. She removes her skirt. (Can you see where this is headed?)

    In South Park, the episode "The Snuke" involves terrorists hiding a nuclear weapon inside Hillary Clinton's Snatch. Snatch Nuke = Snuke.

    ^^^^Eh, not really. There's a certain Squick/comedy factor with this that you don't get with VSC. They get used differently. Just because they're both part of female anatomy doesn't mean they're the same.

    • Real Life: In the non-fiction book, "A Man Called Intrepid", spymaster Sir William Samuel Stephenson mentions that women can carry quite large objects this way if trained properly and that it was used by agents of the British during World War II.

    • In Tom Clancy's novel Patriot Games, when the police catch a female IRA bomber, they have a police woman with a rubber glove check her out at once, to make sure she wasn't concealing anything.

    Real Life: West African drug syndicates force their unsuspecting victims to carry capsules of heroin across countries and continents INSIDE THEIR BODIES. You thought forcing them to swallow heroin capsules the size of hand-held grenades was cruel enough? Then try shoving these into THEIR MOST PERSONAL BOX!
    • Result: Three overseas Filipino workers were sentenced to death in China, one of them for UNKNOWINGLY carrying 70 POUNDS OF CRACK inside her baggage which is supposed to contain second-hand cellphones! Let's not forget about those crack capsules shoved in their pussies!

    • By associating this with O Ring Orifice, one could stretch this to cover extreme examples, such as with Princess Margaret's potential to save the Bentley.

    O ring orifice is more specific, I think.

    • Happens in Will And Grace: Karen catches Stan's mistress, Lorraine Finster, trying to smuggle Karen's jewelry out of the house. Lorraine gives up jewelery that was hidden in various places in her short dress, implying that's all of it. Unconvinced, Karen prompts her to continue. With a sheepish smile, Lorraine shifts her torso and parts her legs a little, and another piece of jewelery drops to the floor at Lorraine's feet.

    Seems like this is exactly Victorias Secret Compartment. Being played differently (for laughs vs. for drama vs. for grossout vs. etc.) doesn't really make it a different trope. See also: The Same But More Specific.

    Victorias Secret Comparment is about a woman using her breasts as a storage space. If you want them to be the same, you'll have to rewrite the entire description to accommodate this variation. Also, there are other tropes that are similar but separate that suggests this can be its own trope.

    A: how does this have even one hat?!?

    B: I think this is technically covered by Treasure Chest Cavity, though a split might be worthwhile.

    C: name is awful, by the way.

    • World's Dumbest... features occasional clips of women seemingly able to slip entire packs of beer up into their vaginas (though logically, they must have very strong thigh muscles), a feat that always seems to impress the cast, so much in fact that some of them try it themselves. Brad Loekle tries it himself and remarks, "This is really hard... does her vagina have its own hand?"

    Removed the hat. This is beyond "description needs help", it literally doesn't even have one.

    Machete's example (one of those early, blocky mobile phones) is mentioned on its page as Victorias Secret Compartment.

    While I don't think this is any different from Victorias Secret Compartment, I will add a couple of examples.

    • In the FU Nimation dub of Crayon Shin Chan, Principal Ench witnesses an angry Penny pull out her Happiness Bunny plushie from underneath her dress and start punching it, as she often does to let out her anger. Happiness Bunny is 2 times larger than she is.
      Ench: Holy cow, she really had that crammed up in there!
    • In Fear Effect 2, Hana has to infiltrate a party as part of her mission. She playfully responds to Rain's protests over Hana's Absolute Cleavage party dress.
      Rain: You're wearing that?! Why don't you just walk in there naked!?
      Hana: If I did that, I'd only have two places to hide a weapon.

    The last line of the first paragraph on that page says:

    Does not, as a general thing, refer to the, uh, other compartment.

    That line can just as easily be edited out, but take that as you will.

    So either broaden Victorias Secret Compartment (as its laconic mentions cleavage) or keep this ykttw.

    • When the Princess is captured by the Dorn in A Dance With Rogues, she is accidentally thrown in the one cell with Tarleth, a fellow female thief, who reveals that she managed to sneak in a lockpick inside her private parts. Since both of them are tied up, however, she need the Princess' help with getting it out. Much Les Yay ensues.
