Feed The Monkey refers to a fuelling of desire.

Usually this desire is something one doesnt want to do, but is addicted to it because of the way it makes him/her feel about himself/herself.. like getting high.. or playing poker.. or going to a strip club.

Scientifically speaking, 'feeding the monkey' is feeding the dopamine gland in the brain..
