Mispelled version of the word "punani," the Kanaka Maoli (native Hawaiian) word for the female genatalia. Literal translation is beautiful and/or splendid flower.

The origin is often miscredited as coming from Jamaica. This can be attributed to the word "puntun," later pronounced "poontang," thought to originate in West Africa and making it's way to the West Indies.
It's spelled punani not punany.

Well, originally the word "punany" or "punani" was used in India -- its in the Kama Sutra -- to describe the female sex organ.

Indian laborers were used to build roads in Jamaica and the Caribbean during the 1930's, 40's and 50's so a lot of Indian slang made its way into the Jamaican vernacular.

There are literally thousands of Jamaican dancehall records glorifying the punany....probably rivaled only by ganja songs. Ganja is also an Indian-based word.

One of several Jamaican words for vagina. Pronounced puh-naah-nee

This word was popularized by Jamaican immigrants in North America and England.

The word itself reached widespread popularity in Jamaica during the 80s with such dancehall songs as Admiral Bailey's "Gimmie Punany" and Shabba Ranks' "Love Punany Bad".

Many Jamaicans accredit the Indians with creating this term, therefore it is worthwhile looking at a possible derivation from Hindi / Bhojpuri which most of the Indians that came as indentured servants to Jamaica spoke. The word "phunni" or "phunno" is a word in Hindi for a boy's penis. (the word puny is also used in Jamaica to mean vagina). An equivalent term in Hindi is "nuuni". Putting these two terms together gives phunninuuni or phunnonuuni. Punany would be a simplification of that pronunciation. It is possible that the Hindi speakers coming to Jamaica began to use this term not only for a boy's penis but also for the vagina or that jamaicans of African decent adopted the word as a word for vagina since it already referred to small genitalia.

I first heard the word Punany from a young Jamaican man at Howard University. It sounded like such a beautiful word for female genitalia, I adopted it for my Poetry project in 1995. "The Punany Poets" celebrate female sexuality and promote safer sex andsexual empowerment through erotic literature and theatrics.
The Punany Poets are featured on HBO Real Sex 24 and 26 demonstrating Punany theater. "Punany Dream" (performed in the segment) is a fantasy piece about a lonely house wife who masturbates while her hard working husband is away at work.
