    'He put his flesh on me' is grammatically correct, but I'd never have guessed it was supposed to mean 'He hugged me'.

    Where did you encounter this unnatural expression?


    Please note that a better title would have been 'He put his flesh on me'.

    That would only work for me if you were both naked. Even then, without some further context, I wouldn't guess that it meant "He hugged me".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It just sounds pretty gross.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
