It's when an airplane broke the sound barrier at 657 MPH & the boom was So Loud! This was in the 60's & 70's. I sure do miss hearing it!
Hearing a sonic boom was the highlight of my day when I was a kid & still would be. The boom was So Powerful & echoed off the mountains!

The sound made when jets, etc., cross the speed of sound.
From Sonic X (Japanese version with English subtitles (fan sub)):

Sam Speed (when he begins using the "Super Nitro"): Super Nitro - ON!

Sam Speed (while using the "Super Nitro"): Out here, I can't accept that someone is faster than me. If you want to pass me, you'll have to break the sound barrier!

*Sonic begins to create a sonic boom while passing Sam Speed*

Sam Speed: Sonic Boom!?

*This exact definition shows up in the anime, see the picture of it with the large yellow SONIC BOOM words above*

Sam Speed: It's over.

A low-level sex move in which when receiving oral sex, the man, as he is about to ejaculate, pulls out and violently clasps his hands over his partner's ears at the precise moment of climax. The goal is to get the girl to bleed out of both of her ears. If one ear is successfully bled, it's categorized as Mach 1. If both ears end up bleeding, a Mach 2 has been performed.
NOTE: This should not be attempted with the man's penis remaining inside his partner's mouth. Bite reflexes are uncommon but always a risk when inflicting pain upon your partner.
Jack: Jill and I fought again today, she was being ridiculous, so during our makeup sex I reminded her of it by giving her a nice sonic boom.
Tommy: Serves a bitch right. You finally achieve Mach 2?
