Swyve is a Middle English word meaning 'to copulate with' and there are many references to it in Chaucer's 'Canterbury Tales' E.G The Teeve's Tale'For, john, seyde he, als evere moot I thryve, If that I may, yon wenche wil I swyve.'

Main entry is "swive", says it's an archaic word for copulating and that it's related to swaying somehow.
