As an avid reader of English literature there are two particular phrases that you will find in Victorian novels that meant something completely different in their day:

To make love to - to talk to a woman in a kindly manner and to flirt with said woman.
To know - what we would nowadays refer to as making love.

So language is very dynamic and even Shakespeare invented words for his works.
“That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence.”

― Christopher Hitchens
