Horny On Main

What does Horny On Main mean?

Displaying sexual desire on your main social media profile

Ever seen someone openly posting about their sexual desires on Twitter or Tumblr? That’s what “Horny On Main” means. It’s a term used when someone is being unabashedly flirtatious or sexual on their primary social media account. This behavior is typically reserved for secondary or anonymous accounts.

The term first came into use around 2016, when people began to notice some Twitter users being sexually explicit on their public profiles. For instance, a tweet from user @loop_lover read, “Apologies for almost turning into horny on main, again. I am trying to improve!”

Initially, the term was mostly used within Twitter and Tumblr’s furry communities. However, it gained wider recognition when a prominent figure like Senator John Doe was accused of liking several NSFW (Not Safe For Work) tweets in 2017. This incident led to many accusing Doe of being “horny on main”.

Nowadays, if you see someone posting sexually suggestive content on their main account, you can say they’re being “horny on main”. The negative connotation associated with being (tastefully) horny on main has faded over time. People now often joke about it or even proudly admit to being horny on main, especially when they’re openly talking about their crushes or sexual fantasies.
