Spanish term or phrase: Los mancuernos
Part of the body colloquially described as being a tendon "between the feet and the vagina." Elsewhere used seemingly in reference to the "groin area" (the person using it that way may not have understood the term). Research shows a similar term (mancuerna) exists in weightlifting. The idea of having one on either side could be relevant. Not sure if the speaker is Mexican or from another country. Would be great to hear from someone who has actually heard this used. I can't provide specific context but this is the idea.

neutral  Juan Jacob: "between the feet and the vagina." No sé, no sé.

  -> Yo tampoco. Lo de la vagina puede ser una broma, o una confusión. El caso es que este es el único sentido de "mancuernos", masculino, que encuentro.
