Out Ye Shall Rock with Thy Silent Flute Exposed

Contrary to the fact that life was so brutal and humans so barbaric way back when, they were quite eloquent when discussing their man- and lady-parts. “Out ye shall rock with thy Silent Flute exposed” — that’s how you “rocked out with your cock out” in 1720. Is it just me or did people sound much smarter 300 years ago? Perhaps they actually thought before they spoke back then. “And so I thrust my Cyprian Scepter upon the Altar of Venus…” – I mean come on, that’s just way classier than, “I hit that pussy”. Change my mind.

Check out these prehistoric slang terms for male and female genitalia from the past 600 years stolen from Green’s Dictionary of Slang by lexicographer and slang expert Jonathon Green. There’s so many good ones — all of them more elegant and sophisticated than the shitty slang words we have now. I love “Altar of Venus”. I think that’s my favorite for vagina. For penis, I can’t choose: Cyprian Sceptor, Generating Tool, or better yet, …Credentials.
