QUOTES:

(1) Shakespeare. The Taming of the Shrew : Grumio: ' Am I but three inches? Why, thy horn is a foot; and so long am I at least.

(2) John Cleland, Fanny Hill: Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure (1749): ' No horn could be stiffer: yet no velvet more smooth or delicious to the touch.'

3. Wear the horns , to suffer cuckoldry. Horns have long been a symbol of cuckoldry; cuckolds have traditionally worn horns to signify their wives infidelity making them horned / horn-mad ; this imaginary of horns on the forehead of a cuckold is becoming obsolescent, but it survives in Patois parlance in the colloquialaism hornin' meaning to commit adultery. (Oddly enough, a horn-shaped pendant is traditionally given by a woman to the man to symbolize his affection for her.)

4. Gate of Horn / gate of horn , 19 th century literary euphemism for the vagina or female genitalia.

5. Blow the (anal) horn , to fart audibly.
