(2) cut

verb; other word formation type
to have sex
 
The verb ‘cut’ typically refers to the act of penetrating a surface with an edged object, but recently possibly through metaphorical extension, it has come to mean ‘to have sex.’ It is common for verbs that describe harmful physical contact to undergo the process of metaphorical extension and be used to mean ‘to have sex.’ Other verbs, which exemplify this, are ‘hit’ and ‘bang.’
Etymology : ‘Cut’ possibly came from Scandinavian originating from North Germanic ‘*kut’ or it possibly came from the Old French ‘couteau’ meaning ‘knife.’
