Cojoined, Co-Joined, or Siamese?

Siamese twins Mary and Terry McBriar are joined at the hip and have only three legs. A recent question from a curious person in England currently has them stumped: are they "co-joined" twins or "cojoined" twins?

Mary, the more intelligent and computer literate one, took her search to dictionaries and the internet. Most of her searches showed her that the word was spelled without a hyphen. Some medical websites, however, spelled it both ways, so she is ambivalent (and also doesn't care) which way it is spelled.

Terry, who tends to be more emotional and outgoing, asked her friends how they felt about it. A co-worker born in Mexico told her that "cojoined" reminded him of the word "cojones" and that this didn't look good as this is a slang word for testicles in Spanish. Terry also insisted that the hyphen should still be there because "I'm still a virgin...ask my sister if you don't believe me."

The boyfriends of the girls, the Pissgums twins (also co-joined or cojoined) said that they preferred to use the word "Siamese" when referring to the McBriar sisters. Buck Pissgums said it was because "siamese is a kind of cat, and we like thinking about pussy when we think of our girlfriends."
