Crunching is a west coast term for hurting a character to show how much you love him/her. Like the Mills Brothers sang, "You always hurt the one you love." Some people use it as a synonym for hurt/comfort. Other people use crunching only for the 'hurt' portion of hurt/comfort. Or as Kathy R. says, hurt/hurt/what comfort?
