31 Adorable Slang Terms for Sexual Intercourse from the Last 600 Years
#1
Lexicographer Jonathon Green’s comprehensive historical dictionary of slang, Green’s Dictionary of Slang, covers hundreds of years of jargon, cant, and naughty talk. He has created a series of online timelines (here and here) where the words too impolite, indecent, or risqué for the usual history books are arranged in the order they came into fashion.

Here are the most adorable terms for sexual intercourse from the last 600 or so years. Many of them have origins so obscure they hardly make sense at all, but that doesn’t detract from their bawdy adorability in the slightest. When it comes to the ol’ houghmagandy, a little mystery goes a long way.

You can have it as long as I get "Have one’s corn ground". Fucking love that! I am going to get shitfaced and get my corn ground.

Pogue the hone is pretty damn good.

Horizontal refreshment. Almost sounds like 1920's hardboiled slang.

Board a land carrack is pretty out there.

Everyone should be armed ...until nobody has guns.
