Sense: "A crushing embrace." What does this really mean and do we actually use the word like this? ---> Tooironic 13:16, 16 June 2010 (UTC)

Sounds like a bear hug. I note also that the 1st def and the def of embrace are circular. Pingku 13:43, 16 June 2010 (UTC)
As written, it's redundant to .1 An affectionate close embrace. Such an embrace could be crushing yet effectionate. I'd just delete it, but hey, why not try and cite it now it's here. Mglovesfun (talk) 15:37, 19 June 2010 (UTC)
