    Context? Because the only reference I could find remotely close to it is "twat", and that's not a word you want to use.

    PS: I found this reference: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=twatage. Keep in mind that urbandictionary.com deals mainly with slang/informal language.

    A slang coinage that I suspect is not destined to survive. It refers to how much textile material is covering a woman's private parts.

    your favorite tweaks across the globe
    It's not a sentence, but it's OK as a phrase. In most contexts, it should start with a capital letter.

    Please start a new thread for a different question.

    It could also be used to assess how much stupidity was involved in something- I have heard it used this way in the UK.

    In BrE, tw*t as a verb can mean hit someone, so it could be used to describe a level of violence, I suppose,l though I haven't heard this used.

    I agree with the level of stupidity suggestion. The word "twat" is slang for both a vagina and an idiot. It's used more commonly for the latter meaning and, in that context, in BrE, I would say it's not considered particularly offensive. I call people twats all the time - bad drivers, people who don't say "Thank you" when I hold a door open for them, my flatmate when he makes a really bad joke. On that basis, I would understand and accept "He's demonstrating a high level of twatage today". I might even spell it "twattage". I don't know. I've never written it down! I can also imagine something like "What a load of old twatage", rather than "a load of old rubbish/twaddle".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    In American slang, it doesn't mean slap or idiot. It just means vagina. But it's often used figuratively. In American slang, the suffix -age is a humorous form of pluralization. So though I've never heard the word twatage, it would seem, in American slang, to be a crude word for women.
