Sex Word Etymology: Spend 16th Century

Sex Word Etymology for the word Spend = ejaculate, orgasm, come.

Spend, used as slang, is a word that originates from the 16th Century in Britain. Spending implies making a deposit or payment thus tying sex with money. It also suggests losing energy or becoming exhausted.

Historic example: With such a tool I thought he’d split her…She held it fast, and made it stand, and spend its venom into her hand.~ Thomas Bridges, A Burlesque Translation of Homer,1770

Example from my books:
What She Craves~Lusts Vow. Pg:3-4
She stared at the octagon-shaped structure. Floor-to-ceiling windows that faced the river reflected the dappled light of the late-afternoon sun, marring the view within. Nothing. She couldn’t see a thing.

“Oh God, Emma, his arse is so red. Reach around and touch his prick.”

Hannah’s eyes widened. Oh my. They were engaged in a sexual act.

“He’s not ready, Rupert,” Emma said in an exasperated voice. “Even though you could spend, I want this to last.” Emma’s squeaky voice paused. “Isn’t Kenneth supposed to join us?”

“Who cares about Kenneth? Get on with it, woman!”

Biting her lip, Hannah hesitated. Maybe at a different angle she could see … something. Her heart pounded in her chest as she stepped forward.

Interesting eh? If you have other examples of the word Spend used historically or in current fiction please comment below with the line, author, and year/era and I will add them to my definitions.

This is the second of a once a month series on Sex Word Etymology that will occur on the 2nd of every month.

Enjoy,

    Great word, Lacy! The Thomas Bridges quote is so funny.

    Who would think that etymology could be so…inspiring? 😉
