Not releasing an item from your hand, even if it is not needed or is having a negative affect.

Originating from the story of trapping monkeys. This is done by placing a banana behind a device that a monkey can easily get their hand through. While grabbing the fruit they make a fist that wont allow them to pull out and they wont let go of the banana.

Maybe if you let go of your monkey grip on those groceries you could open the door.

I had a monkey grip on the fork and couldn't catch the dropping plate of food.

A pleasantly stimulating form of male masturbation. Especially good for arousing dormant pleasure nubbins. This one is great if you like to massage your scrotum with one hand while you masturbate with the other. If you're right-handed, instead of holding your scrotum from the left side, cross your wrists (left wrist on top) so you're grabbing your scrotum from the right side. You may have to bend your body to the right to get the best position. If you've never done this before, it will feel like someone else is holding your scrotum. Tip: As you masturbate with the other hand, press your fingertips and thumb into the cracks between your scrotum and each thigh, and gently massage those areas with slow, rhythmic movements.
Fancy a change in your usual daily masturbation routine?? or just fancy a challenge in your local public toilets? try the monkey grip. we dare you...
