What does sexual tension feel like?

Like when your around a person. Is it like strong physical impulses, or anxiety around the person nervousness, awkwardness, etc)?

Because I get these random feelings around girls that I'm friends with, and I don't really feel (emotionally drawn, or relationship drawn) towards them

  • To me sexual tension feels like this. Okay, let's say I'm around a girl that I find super hot and super sexy to me. Like her chemistry really is getting to me. I'll wanna look at her as much as I can yet I know I can't just stare at her. or I'll wanna talk with her but I'll be like. I can't talk in such a way that she'll be able to tell how much I have the hots for her, etc. So I'm probably kinda awkward and in my reactions towards her even though I'm saying on the inside. make a move of some kind dummie! haha! I definitely have some anxiety that she'll leave too soon or that I'll never see her again. I definitely want to meet those kind of girls and get and I wonder sometimes if they know how much a scene they made with the other guys that were there too. lol! I think any of those feelings you mentioned are signs that you're attracted to those persons. So If you can act towards them in any way you should try. Is this any help?

  • yes, you have the essential definition of sexual tension. sometimes it manifests itself into sexual fantasies or dreams at night about the other person.

    I only know of three ways to break the tension,

    1. experience something with the person that is completely the opposite of what you expected

    2. kiss, grope, sex

    3. staying away from the person for an extended period of time

    I'm sure that there are more ways to break the tension, but I haven't heard of them.

    • Is it just random feelings for the person, (like you don't like them but you get these feelings), or is it someone your attracted to and care about? or something like that..?

    • Sexual tension can actually be between people who are dating. "Bill and Stephanie decided not to have sex until married, so now we have to suffer through their sexual tension". But it can also be between co-workers who don't exchange many words during the day. The definition is broad. so more than likely, you have already experienced it, and are experiencing it now.

    • I stayed away from a guy for 6 weeks because of some unrelated issues going on. When I showed up out of nowhere after 6 weeks of him not hearing from me at all, he was following me everywhere, stood so close that we ended up touching, the a few days later, he was complimenting my shoes, hair, etc. Its like the tension built up rather than disappeared. Now he's always finding ways to touch me, never takes his eyes off me. It was very unexpected. Sexual Tension is thicker now than it's ever been!

  • the air will become thick and sticky when you around that person.

    i miss that feeling :)

  • The tension felt between two people who want to do something sexual together but hold back.
