What are the most common sexting emojis?

Whether you're in a new relationship and seizing every opportunity to flirt with your new partner, or simply engaging in sexting with your long-term significant other, emojis take on a whole new significance when you're having intimate conversations online. Moreover, decoding the suggestive meaning behind sexting emojis (i.e., emojis with sexual connotations) adds a fun and creative element to enhance your sexting game.

This is a bonus for both you and your partner, as sexting, in general, is already a great way to explore each other's desires outside of the bedroom. Ahead, you'll find an unofficial glossary of sexting emojis and phrases, so you can discreetly express your desires for [eggplant and peach], if you catch my drift.

What are the most common sexting emojis?

1. Peach

This occasionally-overused emoji is the default signifier for the butt, booty, ass, bottom, etc. Some use it to signify a vagina, too, but there are better sexting emojis for that one. (Ahem, see the next list...)

2. Eggplant

Do I even need to spell this one out? The purple veggie symbolizes a penis—a well-endowed one, at that. Use only when applicable (which hopefully is often…), or when you really want to flatter the recipient.

3. Sweat Droplets

You could use these for gym selfies, but beads of sweat work even better for sexting. Because sweat, as you might know, is a common byproduct of a hard-core romp.

This emoji can also mean any bodily fluid from orgasm, like semen or squirting. So use it often…

4. Pointed Finger

Do you like being fingered? Use this particular hand emoji when you want your partner to get frisky with just their hands. Feel free to pair it with the peach, if you'd like to point (ha!) your partner in the direction of anal fingering.

5. Okay Hand

Text this one next to the finger and you're basically back in middle school, doing the old finger-in-the-hole hand signal for penetrative sex.

6. Tongue

A sexting must-have, for so many different occasions. It conveys, "I want to lick your [insert noun here]."

7. Lip Bite

Probably the horniest emoji to exist. Send this to let the recipient know you want them, and you want them bad.

8. Smiling Devil

Translation: "I’m horny." But also, devilish…or a freak in the sheets.

9. Hiding Monkey Face

Use this emoji when your partner says something so erotic, you can't help but blush...and smile, of course.

10. Wink Face

Ah, the original sexmoji? The winking face can be used in a non-sexting context, too, like when you're cracking a joke, but more often than not, this little face is suggestive. As in: Let's do it.

11. Smirk Face

My preference over the wink (it's less...creepy-looking), this smiley is basically the "I want to f*ck you" face in emoji form. (No, just mine?)

12. Drool Face

Basically, this emoji says, “I'm so turned on, I’m drooling.” Or, for a little more X-rated interpretation, it could represent your mid-O or post-O face. Either way, you're letting the other person know you're into swapping spit (at the very least).

13. Bone

This one *ahem* is a way to quite literally ask someone if they want to bone (do it, get down, get it on, do the dirty, or have sex, if you will). Sending this with a question mark is a quick and easy way to ask for a hookup.
