What does horny mean? What does it feel like and why do we get it?

Posted on 20 November 2010 by admin

Usually the word “horny” means feeling sexually aroused (turned on). What it’s like to feel horny can be different for everyone! Some physical signs might include heavy breathing, hot/warm skin or face, and erect (hard) nipples. Also, a vagina might become moist (wet) and a penis might become erect. The reason we get horny, or go through puberty is because of hormones.

People get horny for all kinds of reasons and everyone has their own preferences; just like we all have our own favorite food. Someone could get horny from thinking sexy thoughts, seeing someone they like, touching themselves/being touched by someone else, going through puberty and more!
