Making love on a typewriter

From Browne’s Phonographic Monthly, February 1887:

Linguistic note: Professor John McWhorter, Ph.D., of Columbia University, explains that “making love” did not initially refer to the act of sexual intercourse, even into the mid-1900s. His lectures can be found at The Great Courses.
