If girl/boy is dumped by their boyfriend/girlfriend and is crushed, and then another boy/girl sweeps her/him off her/his feet, she/he becomes the rebound.

*Based off of Basketball: Someone(1) couldn't score, so someone else(2) picked up the rebound(3) to give it a try.
(1): The person doing the dumping.
(2): The person picking up the dumpee.
(3): The person who just got dumped.
Boy 1: "Hey, you're with her now?"
Boy 2: "Yeah, she just got dumped by her boyfriend. So I picked up the rebound."

a sexual move which is simply summed up as a double-cockslap

step 1: determine target,stabilize head with one hand and keep the other one free and at your side.

step 2: once you have her on her knees you sway your hips to whichever way she is as to give her a cockslap (preferably the either cheek)

step 3: after you make contact ,your junkwill go the other way where your free hand has been patiently waiting to whip your penis back into her face.

(please note: if there is more than one girl, feel free to modify this move to suit your needs)
