Grinding is a term used in computer gaming to describe the process of engaging in repetitive and/or non-entertaining gameplay in order to gain access to other features within the game. The most common usage is in the context of MMORPGs and JRPGs, most often Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest, in which it is often necessary for a character to repeatedly kill AI-controlled monsters, using basically the same strategy over and over again, in order to advance their character level to be able to access newer content. Grinding can also appear in other games in which features can be unlocked. It is often referred to as farming, a term that came from the repetitive nature of the game Harvest Moon. To Grind means to do one task the most efficient way possible in a repetitious manner.

where usually during dances/parties/clubs a girl presses her butt on a guys crotch to achieve a profuse erection

generally hip-hop/pop/tech/etc. music plays in the background, but if shes good she will move with the beat and depending on the man he will like it slow and sensual or rough and to the point of breaking your dick

black girls are usually best at this since this it is their genre of music generally and they hit almost every beat, followed by latinas, then asian and white tied after (generally speaking) although asians and white girls tend to be prettier to look at

uncreative minds will only hold the hips but it can expand to hand holding, touching the girl, grinding face to face with her vagina getting involved, getting on the floor chris brown-ing her (take you down), etc.
