Listening to Howard Stern whine this morning how Jay Leno rips off all his stupid little bits and then I see the urbandictionary word of the day:

body spam

Unsolicited physical contact.

Hug from Aunt Zelda at Thanksgiving. "Dude, Aunt Zelda totally just body spammed me!"

Compare to this:

emotional spam

that crap that your mom, minister, or significant other is always trying to fill your psychological inbox with

"Dude, Tracy blasted me with an emotional spam attack after I cancelled on her lame Walt Disney World plans at the last minute."
