is used in many phrases, most of them vulgarisms, associated with copulation.
   Among those referring to male copulation are get a leg over: get it, get it in, on, off, off with, or up: get in or into her bloomers, girdle, knickers, or pants; get lucky, round, there, or through; get your end in, hook into, muttons, nuts off, rocks off, way with, will(s) of:
    No chance of'getting off with' anyone else. (A. Clark, 2000)
    He was too drunk to get it up even with the help of a crane. (Archer, 1979)
    ... those motel units where you're planning to get into my bloomers. (Sanders, 1982)
    Buck and Martin... were both trying to get in the girdles of the same sorority girls. (Turow, 1993, but presumably not simultaneously)
    He'd tell a woman anything to get in her pants. (Sanders, 1977)
    One of them is also boasting of having got lucky last night with a local girl. (P. McCarthy, 2000)
    Never seen her before tonight. Bet I get there, though. (Bradbury, 1959)
    We could both get our end in there. (Keneally, 1985)
    'I'd like to get my hook into her,' Davis said. (G. Greene, 1967)
    They couple like stoats, by the way, but only with men of proved bravery... you have to be blood-thirsty to get your muttons. (Fraser, 1977)
    Thanks for coming over, we got our rocks off. (M. Thomas, 1980)
    When he had got his wills o' her...(Kinloch, 1827)
   Other phrases may refer to mutual copulation or by either partner, such as get busy with, get into bed with, get it together, get laid, get your greens, and get your share:
    'Have you ever gotten busy with someone because Hardcore said so?' She does not like this subject, sex, at all. (Turow, 1996 — she was a member of a gang of which Hardcore was the boss)
    ... to get voluntarily into bed with a wanted murderess. (Sharpe, 1979)
    You and me'll be like the fat couples with the big bellies. We ain't never going to get it together. (Vanderhaeghe, 1997)
    A place where even the most diffident foreigner can get laid. (Theroux, 1975)
    She's not getting what I believe is vulgarly called her greens. (G. Greene, 1967)
    'Everyone talks about what a stud he was.'... 'He was getting more than his share even then.' (M. Thomas, 1980)
   Sometimes the same phrases are used of sodomy or bestiality:
    I know a pillar of the community who gets it off with alligators. (Sanders, 1982 — and more than once?)
    ... an amusing set of photographs of one man getting it off with a couple of sailors. (M. Thomas, 1980)
   As a less disagreeable footnote, we may note that, in 1696, Aubrey wrote of Sir Walter Ralegh's 'getting up one of the mayds of honour'; and that, in obsolete use, to get laid meant no more than to get off to sleep:
    I couldn't get myself laid for the noise he mead. {EDD)
