Of all the old-fashioned ways to insult someone, insults aimed at someone's performance in the bedroom have long been the best for causing a fight as quickly as possible. Throughout history, people have come up with hundreds of creative ways to sling insults at each other. While masters of words like William Shakespeare came up with extremely witty and cutting insults ("embossed carbuncle in my... blood," for example), there were put downs for the rest of us common folk, too.
Simple yet devastating words have been used for centuries all around the world. From Vikings to pirates, Victorian aristocrats to more recent Australian pioneers, nobody was safe. Some Medieval insults have even been documented for their zesty takedown status. The most significant thing to note is that historical insults reflect heavily on the values of the particular time and place in which they would have been used. The Victorians, for example, placed a high value on a woman's purity, hence all the words for "loose women" that sprang out of that period.
These short and sweet insults might not make us blush nowadays, but, used properly, they can still make a heated argument much hotter.
