Meaning of "lay it on the line"

Posted by Roian Atwood on January 05, 2002 at

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone knows the roots of the phrase, lay it on the line, I was told by an academic proffesor of gender studies that it refered to the measurement of penis size in taverns during medevil times in europe, can anyone verify this? Please help?
