    I believe you may be requiring a serious and correct answer to your question .. so here

    in the 17th - late 19th century women were wont to depilitate their vaginal regions for both fashionable and health reasons, however for comfort purposes (using the equipment of the day) it was found that some form of covering was required to avoid irritation .. the remedial object was known as a 'merkin' (you'll find this is complete dictionaries described as a female or pubic wig) .. these were fashioned from fine beaver pelts .. hence the modern idiom .. her 'beaver', which, correctly, should only apply to the hirsute appendages of the vaginal region

    It's called a beaver because it chews on long pieces of wood, and because of the way it stretches it's mouth to look like the scary movie mask, that to looks like a va jay jay.

    Probably because it's the part of a woman which has to work so hard to keep mankind on earth, From egesting her superfluous fluids. Her primary reproductive organ. her exit for progeny. Coupled with the expression, "working as hard as a beaver".

    Because that area is hairy like a beaver

    It is only used when a woman doesn't shave

    I've heard it called everything before. It's an immature way of talking about a womans vagina. *****, beaver, kitty blah blah. It's a coochie not a beaver or cat lol. They say because we have a hairy cooch but some women DO shave it.

    Beavers eat Wood, and one of the names for " Old One Eye " in the West Indies is" Wood " So there is the Connection .

    The reason is because both beavers and vaginas "eat wood."
