English term or phrase: bib
I already asked this question in the Eng>Fre section, and they advised me to also ask here, cause we can't find out what this "bib" could mean. Any idea??

- Actually, I had sex with the bib, you know, like, seven times in fact.
- Yeah, six months ago before he dumped you and went to Stanford. Besides, I would not brag about mounting a bib. Even though he was your first, that dude masturbates into cartoons.
- You know what, for your information, they're called hentai. And it's, like, totally not even that kind of abnormal thing in Japan.

(it's about the movie "Juno", the girl gets pregnant, the father is her neighbor and she's on the phone with her best friend, telling her she had sex before him, with this 'bib')

I think the last option - number 7, fits in the context.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
neutral  Mark Berelekhis: I thought this at first as well, but the same bib seems to be masturbating to hentai, which makes this option quite unlikely...

neutral  Tony M: Like Mark, I'd have thought this interpretation highly unlikely, given the context we have.
8 mins

agree  Jonathan MacKerron: I think this is correct, the "six months ago before he dumped you" refers to after her encouter with the bib

neutral  R-i-c-h-a-r-d: I also think this is highly unlikely and can't vouch for the contents of the urbandictionary as being correct. 'Battery Operated Boyfriend' should surely be 'BOB', not 'BIB', or am I missing something?
