Perhaps the word in Portuguese is "chave". It is a term used in wrestling, judo, jiu-jitsu, etc. It is a way to hold a part of another person's body in such a way to cause him great pain, immobilize him, etc. A chokehold (also called "stranglehold") refers to holding the opponent's throat in such as a way as to prevent him from breathing normally. This can lead to great pain, unconsciousness, and even death.

We say we have a "chokehold" on something or someone with we completely dominate it or him. If you have all the tickets to Rock In Rio, you have a chokehold on the event. If someone wants to see it, they have to buy the ticket from you. If you have seen your boss and his secretary at the local motel, maybe you have a chokehold on the raise in salary you have wanted. Maybe...

Cupid refers to romance, of course. I would imagine that Cupid's chokehold is its ability to dominate our thoughts and emotions.

Felipe,

Como o Thomas disse, "chokehold" pode ser usado no sentido de "chave de braço"(mata-leão),ou ainda para se referir a "poder absoluto" que se pode ter sobre alguém/alguma situação.


Boa sorte!
