    • 1994 October 31, Roger Brown, “Singer Needs Substance, Not Image”, in The Plain Dealer, page 5B:
      But will he be content with merely grabbing his crotch instead? That's the key question after Kelly's headlining appearance Friday night at the Budweiser Superfest, held in the Cleveland State University Convocation Center. Kelly's performance was not rip-off bad - it was actually very good at times. But his over-reliance on wall-humping gimmicks left the clear impression that Kelly had sold his audience - and himself - short.

    • 2008, Jeff Warren, The Head Trip: Adventures on the Wheel of Consciousness, Random House, page 43:
      ... Frenzied late-night wall-humping than most researchers twice his age. It was time to let science get on with the job. I pulled the crisp hospital-style sheets up to my neck and closed my cycs again.
    • 2011 February 2, Tashi Singh, “Rihanna S&M (VIDEO): Disturbing and Flagged‎”, in The Post Chronicle[1]:
      In Rihanna's new music video for her song S&M, images flash on the screen of the singer being taped to a wall, fondling the plastic while a bunch of reporters look on with disgust. Clips of article headlines flash to the beat with quotes like "Daddy Issues?" as if to insinuate that Rihanna's wall-humping behavior is a normal form of self-expression and not a result of emotional instability. The fact that teen girls all over the world will watch this video is frightening, to say the least.
  2. (video games) (The act of a character) moving repeatedly against a wall, as if humping it, either intentionally or due to a glitch.

      Indiana Jones was so-so. The walk through bush reminded me of tree humping (grrr). Didn't figure out the snake pit(due to lack of wall humping I hear), though it was obvious that was the point to work on.

      Didnt the PF have to hump the path for a hours too? I really wanna know what kind of crack the PF GM is on. What kind of fucking moron would find wall humping for hours fun (besides mystics)? Maybe its time to go hump all the trees in SF again to see if the mirror will open because something was added after the last chaos storm with no warning or clues.

      I don't think this is a statement that players are stupid. Not at all. They know what's good. This is a statement that engaging in quests, exploration and wall humping is an activity with a similar motivation to rattling the bars of your jail cell: You ain't got nuthin better to do.
