Sexy Fonts for the Penis and Vagina

sexiest-font

 

When I was in high school, a boy in my class once delivered a typed note to my mailbox inviting me to watch a movie with him. Not only that, but he later admitted to spending more than an hour carefully choosing which font to use in his note – time that my best friend and I couldn’t imagine spending on selecting computer font. Of course, we were far too busy spending multiple hours dissecting every little thing that boys we liked (or didn’t like) said or did, including why someone would ever spend so much time choosing a font.

And yet, font sometimes does matter. For reasons unknown to me, today I wondered which fonts were sexiest. Not sexy as in which font stirs feelings of arousal or excitement (because truly I would be surprised if it did that for many people), but what font made the word “sex” itself look most like the way sex feels?

That exercise quickly spiralled into a sort of reverse fortune cookie game. You know, the game where whatever someone’s fortune is, you then tag on the phrase “in bed” at the end as in “You will have great success (in bed)”.

Except here you do it in reverse: Place the font style word/phrase in front of your word. Soon enough you get things like “Berlin Sans Sex” (which – if you remember your high school French class – means “Berlin without sex”, a sad state of affairs indeed), Century Gothic Sex and even Elephant Sex.

Now switch out the word “sex” and replace it with another sex word such as penis or vagina. Now what have you? Well, for starters a Poor Richard Penis, a Wide Latin Penis (or Vagina), and an Arial Narrow Vagina (a la Little Mermaid?). Enjoy.
