The practice of a female’s either showing a man “The Merchandise” or letting him feel her up in exchange for his assistance. Often mentioned in the case of a normally-modest/celibate female who does not want to expose herself but feels that she may have no choice at the time because she really needs the male’s immediate help but possesses no money or other "acceptable" way to presume to expect said male to exert himself on her behalf.

When a woman's tit is seen accidentally by a man, it is only right that the man show his "package" to her as well.
And if you're lucky, it may lead to something else..

Also works vice versa.

Sam: Tit for tat.. I should have known.
