Slang used in the [furry fandom] to describe masturbation, or the act thereof.
Originates from the slang term [jerking off]. Comes from that a furrys [fursona] most likely has paws instead of hands, thus the term for pawing.
(Usually used in the same context even if the animal has claws, hands, etc.)
Can be used in past (pawed), present (pawing), or future (paw) tenths.
