    Hi there

    i was reading a novel, and there was a guy who always lent money to his co-workers untill payday, thus he got the nickname called "rollover" and ''soft touch."

    he said he felt those nicknames had disturbing double meanings because he was lonley on the romantic front.

    i can understand the "soft touch" part, but "rollover?" what's the double meaning here?

    can anyone tell me?
    thanks a lot.

    Rolling over might be seen as like turning away- rejecting him sexually. (I am guessing here as I cannot see a direct and obvious link)
