"Loin" and the "groin", what's the difference?

  1. Technically your loins are your sides between your ribs and your hips, the same area of anatomy where a pork loin comes from. Your groin is where your thighs meet your hips. But both "loins" and "groin" are also used as a euphemism for genitals.

  2. Unless you are talking about food, like loins or tender loins, or perhaps writing some sword and sandal fantasy about an Achilles like character, I wouldn't use 'loin' in this context.
