look up any word, like swag:
 
1.
When a male hugs another person in a way that makes his erection inconspicuous.
I gave her a side hug so that she would not feel I was attracted to her and stimulate me further in ways I would regret.

2.
When someone is standing next to you and give you a hug but without facing you. So they're hugging you from the side of your body.
1. Joby said, "Lexie, why do you always give me side hugs?"

2. Grady came up to Karin and gave her a side hug.
