vulgar by some people, for:
1. To copulate. Usage in this sense, based on the forming of a hump, the arching of the back, when copulating in the missionary position ((a beast with two backs), dates back to the 18 th century. Captain Francis Grose defined hump in 1785 ( Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue ): ' To hump; once a fashionable word for copulation. ' It seems to have made a come-back because it is now a widespread term in the US and UK. See copulation for synonyms.
