the glory of the 'pubic wig'!
This put a strange Whim in his Head; which was, to get the hairy circle of [a prostitute's] Merkin .... This he dry'd well, and comb'd out, and then return'd to the Cardinall, telling him, he had brought St. Peter's Beard.” [Alexander Smith, "A Complete History of the Lives and Robberies of the most notorious Highwaymen," 1714]
