I actually looked up the origin of that phrase, did you know it comes from the orgies in ancient Rome?

Yeah, they were a lot more organized than one might think. Sort of takes the fun out of it if you ask me, but there you go.

So the orgies had rounds, and at a certain point it got a bit kinky and out came the whips.

Hence, the modern phrase "whip round." Sounds a bit nice, eh edds? Wink

Actually
it's from British Fox Hunts "send the whip around" to get enough money off participants to buy a Keg of Booze after the Hunt.
the Whip being a servant that kept the dogs in line with a whip Wink

A whip round
Other phrases about:
Money and wealth
Sports and games
What's the meaning of the phrase 'A Whip round'?
An impromptu collection of money from a group of people, in order to fund some joint enterprise.

What's the origin of the phrase 'A Whip round'?


So, why is the collection of funds called a whip round? This expression is very much 'made in England' as it derives from fox hunting, the British Army and parliament.

In 19th century foxhunts, people were employed to stop the hounds from straying by using whips to keep them in place. Such people became known as 'whippers in' or simply 'whips'. This term has been perpetuated in the British House of Commons where the word 'whip' again does double duty, as it is both the name of the officers whose job it is to guide straying MPs into the voting lobbies, that is, to 'whip up' enthusiasm for a particular vote, and is also the name of the coercion process itself, which is called 'the whip'.
