Meaning of spunk

spunk means: (1) male ejaculate (2) courage (3) an attractive male (4) worthless individual, eg; "Now listen here, spunk!" (ed: it's odd how the word has opposite meanings in UK and AUS, i.e. Aussie girls LIKE their men to be "spunks")From Scottish Gaelic "spong", tinder, pith, sponge, and Middle Irish "spongc", tinder. Both related to Latin "spongia", sponge. The link to sponge is that wood used for kindling was spongy in appearance. More below. Used in 1536 as "sponk" to mean "a spark". The figurative use of "spunk" meaning "courage, pluck" comes from the late 18th century. It was not slang for semen until the late 19th century. In 1811, it was still defined in a dictionary of cant and underground slang as "rotten touchwood, or a kind of fungus prepared for tinder; figuratively spirit, courage". I surmise that the link to semen was because the ejaculate leaps out like sparks, indicating a virile chap, and virile isn't far from courageous, having mettle, spirited. Meanwhile, it's correct that Australian girls refer to sexy young men as spunks. That makes me smile - if only they knew what they really meant! (ed: thanks for that overkill Brian )
