A few Anglo-Saxon riddles from around 500 AD for your blushing pleasure:

Dropping from the thigh of a man a strange shape lurking under the cloak. Chained to the body by a strong bond I am stiff, hard and stand there well. When a man searches for me he lifts his clothes and takes this thing. I am to push my head into a similarly shaped hole of the same breadth which often my hard rod has penetrated before. What am I?
 
I fill women with expectation and though erect and tall is my stem - I stand hard in a bed - I am whiskered below. A greedy wench will grip me hungrily, putting me in a close place. But soon she will pay for her presumption and this lovely woman who assaults and pulls at me will find her eyes become wet. What am I?
 
I grow in a small place, swelling up and rising with the excitement of being covered and hot. I have no bones and so the maiden takes me in her hands and pumps me and then she hides my growing self to perfect. What am I?

Congratulations for you very correct "bread dough" answer!  The second one, although not your main guess, was indeed "onion'.  Although all of your answers were exactly the way I guessed, the first one is not correct.  It is NOT a sword.

Any more guesses to the first riddle?
