    Default rub

    Dear all,

    What is the meaning of "rub" in:

    "This guy is so muscular. I might want to go home and rub on my husband's shoulders"

    What does rubbing shoulders have anything to do with the guy being muscular?

    Thanks a lot

    Dear lord! What are you reading/watching? haha

    I'm not sure what she is saying. I'm guessing she means foreplay. Because the muscular guy is sexy she'll want to have sex with her husband.

    Nothing. "To rub shoulders with" means "to associate with." "When she arrived in Washington she began to rub shoulders with all the big decision-makers."
    Like freezeframe, Iwonder what you've been reading and my guess on the meaning is about the same. (Smile)
