Cheeks (Grose 1811 Dictionary)

Cheeks

Ask cheeks near cunnyborough; the repartee of a St. Gilse’s fair one, who bids you ask her backside, anglice her a-se. A like answer is current in France: any one asking the road or distance to Macon, a city near Lyons, would be answered by a French lady of easy virtue, ‘Mettez votre nez dans mon cul, & vous serrez dans les Fauxbourgs.’

Definition taken from The 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue, originally by Francis Grose.
