mark of the beast:
A literary metaphor for the vagina coined in the 17 th century by playright and songwriter Thomas d'Urfay (1653-1723). This is one of many eurotophobic (expressing fear of the female genitalia) metaphors for the vagina viewed, by some men, as a dangerous place . See vagina for synonyms. SEE ALSO: vagina-dentata .
QUOTE: Lawrence Paros. The Erotic Tongue (1984): ' Nobody really knows where the hole came from, though Captain Grose, the roguish eighteenth- century lexicographer, had his own ideas about it . His version opens with an angel who had been employed in forming women, forgetting to cut off their parts-of-generation . Enter Lucifer who took it upon himself to set matters right. Taking a somewhat direct approach to the problem, he placed himself in a sawpit with a scythe fixed to a stick in his hand and directed the women to straddle the pit . He then gave each the mark of the beast (c. 1715). The pit being too deep for the length of his instrument , tall women received only a moderate scratch , but little women, because their legs were so short and more within his reach, received a somewhat larger cut . The long and the short of it? They both went home with an everlasting-wound (17 th C), known in some quarters as the divine-scar (18 th C). The Devil, henceforth, was to be known as Old Nick or Ole Scratch ; and the c**t [cunt] , as slit (17 th -20 th C), nick , and gash (both 16 th -20 th C) .'
