pussy pad
 n.— «Pussy pad No, this is not what you think. An air mattress or similar item should be used to protect you from wet and cold ground. There is nothing like waking up in the middle of the night soaking wet from absorbing water from the ground. Sleeping directly on the ground is also a great way to get sick. An air mattress that you blow up with air is not recommended, as these can develop holes that can be hard to repair. A thin sheet of foam rubber or stiffer material that can be rolled up and attached to the outside of your rucksack is better suited to this task. It has been said that only pussies need pussy pads—by that definition, everyone is a pussy.» —“Preparedness, Page 2″ Space Rogue , 2000. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
