I don't think it's a matter of whether the actual words are offensive.
A number of people do tend to be embarassed when using such words which is
why humans have always had a tendency to use euphemisms for certain body
parts, sex, bodily functions, etc since probably day 1.

So it's not really an unusual thing.  In fact, it's perfectly period.  You
can even find euphemisms in Greek and Roman literature.  Perhaps not the
ones we are currently using, though<G>.
