Excited Or Horny In Spanish

People starting out learning Spanish sometimes use excitado/a for the word “excited” since they are spelled almost the same. Excitado/a does mean “excited” but in a sexual way:

I’m excited. (horny)
Estoy excitado/a.
ehs-toy ehk-see-tah-doh/ah.

If you’re excited about something, like a vacation for example, you want to use emocionado/a instead:

I’m excited. (enthusiastic, thrilled)
Estoy emocionado/a.
ehs-toy eh-moh-see-ohn-ah-doh/ah.

To describe something exciting you can use emocionante:

It was exciting.
Fue emocionante.
fweh eh-moh-see-ohn-ahn-teh.

Different ways to say “turned on” or “horny” in Spanish

Excitado/a is probably the most formal way to say “horny.” Here’s some others…

The word caliente means “hot” but when you are talking about people it means “hot” in a sexually aroused way:

She is horny.
Ella está caliente.
Eh-yah ehs-tah kah-lee-ehn-teh.

or…

I’m horny.
Estoy caliente.
ehs-toy kah-lee-ehn-teh.

When you are talking about things like food or a stove it simply means “hot.”

The food is hot.
La comida está caliente.
lah koh-mee-dah ehs-TAH kah-lee-ehn-teh.

If you want to say you are hot because the temperature is too hot use the word calor instead of caliente. When you use calor you use it with the verb tener, which means “I have” instead of “I am.” So the literal translation is “I have hot” instead of “I am hot.”

I’m hot. (the temperature is too hot)
Tengo calor.
tehn-goh kah-lohr.

Cachondo/a is another word that means “horny.” In some countries it is a more humorous way of saying it. Cachondo/a only means horny when it is used with the temporary verb estar. When you use it with the permanent verb ser it means funny.

He is horny.
Él está cachondo.
EHL ehs-TAH kah-chohn-doh.

He is hilarious.
Él es cachondo.
EHL ehs kah-chon-doh.

Arrecho/a is another word that means “horny” but it’s probably less universal than the other ones. In some countries it can mean other things instead of “horny.”

We’re horny.
Estamos arrechos.
ehs-tah-mohs ahr-reh-chohs.

Telling your lover that he/she is turning you on.

If you want to tell your lover that he/she is making you horny or turning you on remember that Spanish speakers say “putting me horny” using the verb poner instead of “making me horny” using the verb hacer:

You are (really) turning me on. (making me horny)
Me estás poniendo (muy) caliente.
meh ehs-tAHs poh-nee-ehn-doh (mwee) kah-lee-ehn-teh.

Here’s a stronger way to say the same thing:

You’re driving me wild.
Me estás volviendo loco/a.
meh ehs-tAHs vohl-vee-ehn-doh loh-koh/ah.

      Doesn’t make any sense. You either need a different verb or add a gerund.

    Do Spanish (Euro and Latin America) use the word ‘hot’ the same way we do, ie – she’s smokin hot.
