    make her upper lip curl

    I do not understand "make her upper lip curl" in the sentence
    "The thought (...) had the potency to make her upper lip curl..."


    Could someone explain it please? I tried several dictionaries, thesaurus etc but failed.
    Thanks a lot,
    Sarasara

    It is a facial expression where the mouth tightens and the upper lip becomes more prominent. People are usually totally unaware they do this.

    It seems to me to have something to do with sex, but isn't there some context for that?
