Wednesday word: 壁ドン (kabe-don)

壁ドン (Kabe-don)

noun:  Kabe-don is a romantic situation popularized by shojo manga (Japanese comics aimed at teenaged girls) in which one person pins another person against the wall in a show of sexual dominance. "Kabe" means "wall" and "don" is the onomatopoeia for the thud sound of hitting a wall.

I first heard of the term in this video clip of all places!
