‘Que coñazo!’, literally translated means “what a big vagina”. This expression is used very similarly to its english counterpart when reffering to a person – ‘what a p*ssy’ or the more vulgar C-word (though in Spanish it is not quite as rude and is more acceptable). It can also be used more casually when complaining about something being boring. If something is a drag you use the expression ‘¡Qué coñazo!’.
If you shorten the expression to ‘¡Coño!’ you can use it to express surprise or something exciting. This is a very common way to curse in Spanish, so don’t be surprised if you here everyone from grandmothers to schoolkids shouting it out at top volume!
