    meaning of : ничто так не возбуждает девушку, как легкие покусывания ....

    Hi,

    ничто так не возбуждает девушку, как легкие покусывания бывшего своих локтей...

    Am I correct in thinking this means :

    Nothing excites a girl more that biting her elbow ... ?

    This is not an idiom is it ? I can translate this literally like this ?

    cheers !

    Hmm, I guess this is in fact an idiom, specifically "кусать локти" It means to bitterly regret something, usually it is like I wish I hadn't done something. The sentence itself can be interpreted as follows:

    Nothing exites a girl more than her ex regretting his actions (blowing her off most likely)

    I do not claim that my opinion is absolutely true.
    If you've spotted any mistake in my English, please, correct it. I want to be aware of any mistakes to efficiently eliminate them before they become a habit.

    Я бы сказал : легкие покусывания бывшим своих локтей...
