I'm torn.   It's either an erotic dance move or a generic term for after-bath splash that your grandma used to wear.   I'm thinking since we just had a pole dancing term recently I'll go with the splash.

"Granny, thanks for letting me use your bal*** (my laptop won't let me see the post I am responding to so I can't see the word) since I forgot mine.   Glad you have Jean Nate."

I believe it is a martial arts move.  "Did you see that bal -nee-AH-luh-jee he just gave that guy in his groin?"  Of course it could also be the name of Cara's forsythia bush.
