take a turn in the stubble


take a turn in the stubble
   obsolete (of a male)
   to copulate
   One of many vulgar puns of which our forefathers were so fond, a turn, being a stroll or outing, and the stubble, pubic hair. To shoot over the stubble was to suffer premature ejaculation or the withdrawal method of contraception.
   Grose tells us that a man might take many other similar turns, in Cupid's Corner, love Lane, Mount Pleasant, and other punning addresses in London. A female might take a turn on her back in any part of the Kingdom.
