When a male
is making advances on a female
and one of the female's friends (usually female) separates the female and the male to end any chance of him "making a move
." The friend usually moves the female away from the man and prevents any conversation
from continuing. The friend feels that the female is too inebriated
to make good decisions and has decided to make decisions for her. The termination
of all conversation and contact
with the female eliminates any chance of sexual intercourse
with the male. Thus the cock
has been blocked
Cockblocking can be in response to fearing for the female's safety or by jealousy.
To prevent cockblocking a male may recruit a buddy to serve as wingman and distract the cockblocker.
