An den Wachteln kratzen


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear english-speaking readers,
this is a post about the saying "Don't get on my tits!" versus "Don't get on my balls" and the question whether men and women could use it alike. In Germany women rarely say "Don't get on my balls" (in German, of course), whereas I heard that it's quite common for men to say "Don't get on my tits!". Then I'm searching for an expression that could be used by both genders and could name both tits and balls. My friend came up with the expression "quail" and now it's "Don't get on my quails!" or in German "Geh mir nicht auf die Wachteln!"
