noun. a place or situation with the sole (stated or not stated) purpose of facilitating interaction of individuals for sexual/romantic activities.
The term draws parallels between real meat markets, where meat is hung up and displayed in plain view for people to look at, judge the quality of, and make decisions of whether to buy or not, and the atmosphere of many nightclubs/bars that are only seemingly in existance so individuals can display themselves to others for judgement and "aquisition", and likewise, size up and attempt to "aquire" others.
also used as an adjective to describe places possessing this quality.
