"at both endes"
|In W. Smith's The Hector of Germany, or, The Palsgrave, Prime Elector (1615), a play primarily concerned with 14th- and 17th-century European politics, there is a comic interlude between an Englishman and a Frenchman. As the two jokers are comparing their respective knowledges of the world, the conversation turns to women and the kissing styles of different nations.|
Englishman: Now wee are in the discourse of women,Umm, "at both endes"? Is that upper and lower? Or front and back? Or both?
Regardless, I think the English definitely win the title of Kinkiest Kissers in Early Modern Europe, at least if W. Smith is to be believed.
