Fanny = Female Genital Organ (which has expanded from the next example >) & a slang derogatory word for a female.

(comes from a serviceman's vocabulary during the 1st & 2nd World Wars, i.e. "im going out to try & get myself a Fany")
and the term has developed from there to not just mean a female, but her actual sexual organs.

(this could be where the Americans get it from i.e. "im going out to try & get myself some ass (FANY)"
it relates to THE FIRST AID NURSING YEOMANRY (FANY) which was created in 1907 as a first aid link between front-line fighting units and the field hospitals. (FANY's {Fanny} = the nurses)

During the First World War, FANYs ran field hospitals, drove ambulances and set up soup kitchens and troop canteens, often under highly dangerous conditions.

so therefore were mostly the only female's the sex starved soldiers came into contact with.

UK, Australia, NZ. Fanny= pussy
Silly yanks, fanny= bum
They do seem to have a lot arse about. Even funnier when a girl says "i'll stick that in my fanny pack" which does make for a lot of shocked faces.
I piss myself laughing when that show "the nanny" comes on, at the start the song goes that she got kicked out and landed on her "fanny", ouch, how unfortunate.

Either a non-U.S.An. term for a vagina or pussy or a United States of American term for the buttocks or ass. The regional differences are grounds for humo-U-r.
Winston Churchill: Wow! Last night with the wife was fantastic.
Uncle Sam: Yeah? What did you do to her?
Churchill: Well, first I had to suck her fanny...
Sam: Wait! What did you do?
Churchill: I sucked her fanny--I sucked her fanny dry to where there wasn't anything left in there!
Sam: I didn't know you liked to eat shit.
Churchill: What?!
Sam: You ate your wife's ass out dry, as you said. Either that or she had an operation that switched her ass with her pussy.
Churchill: What the hell are you talking about?
(Winston Churchill and Uncle Sam get into a bitch fight.)

There is only one true definition of this word.
And that is "pussy". Not "butt" or "ass".
The yanks have it wrong again.
Think of it this way: Americans speak English. English don't speak American. It's that simple really.
We are right, you are wrong.And we're not your cousins.
"Nothing i like better than pounding a fanny.That means i fuck pussy. Not ass.Like a gay american"
