dildo (n.)

"用于满足女性需求的人工阴茎",1590年代,该词来源不明。传统的猜测包括意大利语 deletto "喜悦"(来自拉丁语 dilectio ,行动名词,来自diligere"高度推崇,热爱;"见 diligence )的腐败,或者英语 diddle 的腐败。这些似乎都不太令人信服(弗洛里奥的词典用 dildo 来掩饰许多词,但 diletto 不是其中之一)。世纪词典》或许更接近于此。

A term of obscure cant or slang origin, used in old ballads and plays as a mere refrain or nonsense-word; also used, from its vagueness, as a substitute for various obscene terms and in various obscene meanings. [1895]

最早使用这个词在这个意义上,并可能是其流行的开始,似乎是通过Nashe。

"Curse Eunuke dilldo, senceless counterfet" ["Choise of Valentines or the Merie Ballad of Nash his Dildo," T. Nashe, c. 1593]

其他早期的形式包括 dildoides (1675年), dildidoes (1607年)。中世纪英语有 dillidoun (n.)"一个亲爱的,一个宠物"(15世纪中叶),来自古北欧语 dilla "哄"(因此 dillindo "摇篮曲")。如果是琼森的《辛西娅的启示》中的词,这个意义可能存留到伊丽莎白时代。

Chorus: Good Mercury defend vs.
Phan.: From perfum'd Dogs, Monkeys, Sparrowes, Dildos, and Parachitos.

dildin 似乎是1675年一出戏中"甜心"的一个术语。

Mir.: Here comes a lusty Wooer, my dildin, my darling.
Here comes a lusty Wooer Lady bright and shining.

这个词本身就比较古老古典拉丁语中的一个词是 fascinum (见 fascinate )。在后来的英语中,有时会使用一个法语词, godemiché ,(1879年)。在18世纪也用过类似假阳具的东西,如 dildo pear (1756)、 dildo cactus (1792)。

莎士比亚在"冬日的故事"中发挥了双重意义,即性玩具和民谣回文。"

SERVANT: He hath songs for man or woman, of all sizes; no
milliner can so fit his customers with gloves: he
has the prettiest love-songs for maids; so without
bawdry, which is strange; with such delicate
burthens of dildos and fadings, 'jump her and thump
her;' and where some stretch-mouthed rascal would,
as it were, mean mischief and break a foul gap into
the matter, he makes the maid to answer 'Whoop, do me
no harm, good man;' puts him off, slights him, with
'Whoop, do me no harm, good man.'
