Penis. Early:

1927 _South Western Reporter_ CCXCV  789 [St. Paul, Minn.: West Publishing]
[GB]: Did he tell you to tell the court and jury that this man made you
suck his worm?

Earlier [HDAS files]:

1888 _Stag Party_  [unp.] [N.p., n.d.] : Whose worm have you had in your
little inside?

Earliest [HDAS files]:

ca1600, T. Nashe in  E. J. Burford _Bawdy Verse_ (Harmondsworth: Penguin,
1982)  35: Perhaps the silly _Worm_ hath laboured sore,/ And worked so that
it can do no more.
