Plug and Jack :


In electronics, a jack is a female part into which one inserts a plug, the male part.


People get confused because “Jack” is a male name.


The cyberpunk term (from William Gibson’s Neuromancer) “jack in” should logically be “plug in,” but we’re stuck with this form in the science fiction realm.
