    Beating the Bishop

    “Beating the Bishop” is a slang expression for masturbating in men.

    The expression is based on the act comically resembling beating something between your legs by the up-and-down movement of the arm as if wielding a hammer, and the “Bishop” is in turn slang for the penis which is receiving all of this attention.

    Example usage:

    “I wager that he has retreated to the shower so he can beat the bishop!”
