steg month


steg month
   obsolete
   the period around childbirth when a husband might copulate extramaritally with relative impunity
   From being a gander in northern English dialect, wandering about while the goose was hatching the goslings, a steg became an aimless male. The wife who was unavailable for copulation was known as a steg-widow. See also gander-mooner. Stag month and stag widow, which you may find in other works of reference, are mistaken corruptions.
   In modern, probably ephemeral, slang, a steg, a shortened form of stegosaurus, is a sexually unattractive woman.
