    gave me a strong lick

    (source: Iceberg Slim - Pimp, The story of my life)

    Section that contains the expression:

    "We were at a cabaret. Carmen was behind a twenty-six game table in the barroom. I left my table and went to the John. I passed Carmen on the way. She gave me a strong lick."

    Background:
    Slim is at a night club. He spots a girl who looks convineable to be his whore. He walks close to the girl's table and she gives a sign to call his attention. But what she did exactly? What 'giving a strong lick' means?

    I have no idea other than the simple literal interpretation.

    Upon reflection, I think it means she gave him a good slap on the buttocks.
