Quick queston - the word box

Quick question - how many of you would consider the word box potentially vulgar?

I'm thinking of registering a domain along the lines of BigBeanBox, but someone pointed out to me that it might be (willfully) misinterpreted. This was news to me, but the dictionary does support this. Is he alone?

    Of course some context on how it's used might help us give a useful answer.

    As an email address, but I think your first reply answers my question.

    You know Bean also has sexual connotations? And so when combined with box....

    My first reply was in jest. I'm sure if you emailed Viz with that address they'd find it hilarious but not many would find it rude.

    I'm starting to think I've lived a naive life.

    Bean isn't actually part of it. If my name was Joe Bloggs then I'm thinking of registering BloggsBox as a domain so my whole family can use it. (Obviously Bloggs is already taken). Box as in InBox

    Oh thanks. That's the sort of answer I was looking for. The person who said it to me is the sort of person I imagine read Viz 30 years ago. Unfortunately that is probably a sizeable demographic.

    Simple enough answer - is there a porn site which uses the word box in replacement for the myriad of words it uses for vagina? If so...

    If a word or phrase can be misinterpreted, then it will be.
    That said, it says more about the person doing the interpretation than the writer.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Seems to be quite easy to misinterpret things. Malaysia and Philippines enjoying a UKIP poster.

    I sort of followed your advice. I compared the number of porn search hits based on the word box with the number based on my control word table. Table is more pornographic it turns out.
