Sexting with emoji doesn’t just make you thirsty. It can make you hungry too.
Between the cherry emoji, the eggplant-alternative hot dog emoji, and the redesigned peach emoji, your choices for flirty texting with emoji are a virtual grocery basket of juicy options. And beyond just the food emoji, with a little imagination, nigh-on any emoji can be made sexy.
Here are 15 saucy emoji you can use for sexting:
How have we ignored the cherry emoji for so long? They are so very versatile. The ruby red cherries resemble a particularly juicy derrière. And, if butts aren’t your bag, you can even use the cherries as a euphemism for breasts and balls.
2. Full moon
The full moon is the original euphemism for bottoms. In fact, moon has been a used to describe butts in English since 1743, long before the peach emoji was invented. The moon emoji is perfectly round, and its smiley face will bring a similar smile to the face of your sexting partner.
3. Beating heart
Sometimes it helps to depict movement when you’re sexting. Plainly put, we’re talking about twerking and, well, anything that involve wiggling your bottom. Use with wild abandon.
The poor chestnut emoji has long been resigned to the long list of emoji that you never, ever use. But, it shouldn’t be. The chestnut emoji is useful. Not all butts are completely round. Some are chestnut-shaped. This is the emoji for you if you wanna be anatomically correct.
Why does the eggplant emoji get so much attention? If you think about it, the cactus is just as phallic. Granted, the prickles might be slightly off-putting, but why not shake things up a little?
This is a highly versatile emoji. You can use it to describe breasts, butts and even balls.
There’s a reason why there’s an entire line of jeans named after apple-shaped bottoms. Some butts really do look like apples. Again, if you feel like this emoji is more representative of your behind, go ahead and use it.
While the eggplant — and cactus — emoji abound when talking about penises, what can we use if we want to talk about female genitals? Make like Georgia O’Keeffe and use some floral, vulvic emoji.
9. Broken heart
We may never get back that butt cheek definition afforded by the classic peach emoji, but the broken heart could certainly be interpreted as two rather distinct cheeks.
Too shy to talk about oral sex? The lollipop emoji could work a treat in getting the message across. What’s more: it can refer to every single type of oral sex imaginable. Cool.
11. Hot dog
Thank you, Unicode, for the gift of the hot dog emoji. This is patently both phallic and vulvic. But the two buns could also act as a rather tenuous butt metaphor too.
When your booty is pear-shaped, an apple just won’t work. Crack out the pear emoji when chatting about your behind.
13. Corn on the cob
Ugh, eggplants are so over. The corn on the cob is phallic and just screams ‘penis!’
Depending on how much you like Mexican food, this vulvic creation could be a dream-come-true or your very worst nightmare.
A juicy classic representing all the butts.
Go forth and sext!
