swive – a synonym for the f-word. The latter first appears around 1500, and ‘swive’ (related to ‘swivel’) is the term previously used. The verb to quim may refer only to the female’s role in the activity.

God give you both one shame’s death to dien!
He swived thee; I saw it with mine eyen.

I have thries [thrice] in this shorte night
Swived the miller’s daughter bolt-upright,

–Chaucer, Canturbury Tales, Reeve’s and Merchant’s Tales
