Sex Word Etymology: Pot (Honeypot, Jampot) 17th Century

Sex Word Etymology for the word Pot = Female genitalia, cunt, or pussy.

Pot, used as slang, is a word that originates from the 17th Century in Britian. Based on the idea of a container, it was used for the female genitals. In later years Jampot (19th Century), and Honeypot (18th century) were also used.

Historic example: In love I am not so simple, But to observe she has a Dimple. And such a one, as who would not Put all his Flesh into the Pot?~ Charles Cotton , Burlesque upon Burlesque 1675.

Example from my books:
Animal Lust~Martin: Pg 6

” ‘Twas a lovely, Jane. Ye have a sweet little honeypot. Take care of it and we’ll come out here again sometime.” He turned and headed off into the woods.

By God. What had she done?
