Verga can mean “penis,” but also “rod,” “fuck,” “hell,” and just about any vulgarity, it seems. This is a word we can get behind.
The Spanish verga comes from the Latin virga, meaning “rod” or “staff.” Before the word even evolved into Spanish, Latin authors as early as the sixth century were using virga as a euphemism for penis. Rod, penis … because it’s just so easy.

Early instances of the word verga in the written Spanish language go back to the 16th century. As in Latin, it was used for its literal meaning “rod” or “staff” but also “penis.”
By the 18th century, verga was being used in Spanish for the “crossbeam” of masts on a ship (or the yard in boat lingo). It was the Age of Exploration, after all. This brought Spanish to the Americas, where verga entered its next chapter.
