  • Sexual partner. I first heard the word used in the movie "Fast Walking" (1982), to describe the passive partner in a jailhouse relationship. The word, however, seems to be more commonly used as an affectionate--but slightly patronizing--synonym for girlfriend.
    I wish she was MY little squeeze.
