    The word "fuck" is actually an acronym. It dates back to the Good Old Days, when England was severely under populated due to the usual combination of fire, war and plague. The King issued an official order to... well, fuck, to replenish the population. Hence the phrase "Fornicate Under Command of the King" passed into everyday language

    Not to dispute the King's order, I heard that story 30 years ago. I always thought it was just a corruption or English pronunciation of the German word fichen. C'mon, who needs to be commanded by the King to fuck. Everybody fucks don't they?

    Not sure of the actual source and it probably is not true. Add this to it:

    "Fornicating under the consent of the king. In medieval times if a peasant wanted to marry he had a problem. The 'lord' or his representative had first claim on the bride. The prospective groom, if he could afford it, could buy a license which they would hang over the door informing all others that they were fornicating under the consent of the king." And the groom's rights were protected."

    Good story anyway.

    Yes, the lord supposedly had his right of "prima nocte" or "le droit de seigneur" with all the young brides on his land. Scholars are not sure if this was actually true, though.

    Well, around here the Baltic mansion-owners, mostly German of origin, literally owned the land and the peasants on them right up until the mid-1800-s. The right of he first night was actually used quite eagerly, apparently.

    Free? Prostitutes don't fuck for free, unless you know them. Suppose those "bobbies" were getting freebies?

    I've read that before too, with the origination from the king or whatnot. But I'm pretty sure it is fake, there are lots of theories to the origination of the word if you do some research.
