TikTok Embraces Chaotic Horny Energy With The “Bringing Sexy Back” Trend

Look, here at Syrup’s scattered HQ, we’ve been in self-isolation for over a month. And, if our response to Tom Holland’s shirtless handstand challenge told us anything, we’re all getting dangerously and chaotically horny. 

Stonks are down but sex toy sales are up. Animal Crossing fans are uncomfortably into Raymond, the platinum blond haired maid outfit wearing cat villager. We admitted we wish we were one of Harry Styles’s wonderfully whimsical and warm woollen sweaters on Instagram (no shame).

But, nothing has prepared me for TikTok’s latest trend. The creme of the corné crop. The pinnacle of horniness on main. Proof that we’ve all finally lost it and are inhabiting our most feral desires online.

TikTok’s “Bringing Sexy Back” trend.

C’mon, Let’s Bring Sexy Back 

In the TikTok “Bringing Sexy Back” trend, people are revealing their favourite dreamy celebrities to the world. They’re finally letting loose their secret stan twitter accounts, dancing towards cutaway images of their totally-real-and-not-fake-whatsoever boyfriends. All to the chorus and beat of Justin’s Timberlake’s sultry anthem, “Sexy Back.”

As one woman wrote in the description to her “Sexy Back” video, here are “some men that could really step on me.”

Personally, if I did one, it’d consist of, oh idk, maybe Tyler, The Creator post-Flower Boy era, BTS’ J-Hope and Jin, The Legend of Korra’s Bolin, Andy from Bon Appétit and internet and former Vine comedian Gabriel Gundacker.

Self-isolation and TikTok’s “Sexy Back” trend is bringing out people’s most feral desires online

If anything, this trend is telling a lot about people and their taste.

Where most of us would answer the question, “who’s your all time celebrity crush?” with Mr. Timothée Chamalet, Zendaya, Rina Sawayama or, one of the seven beautiful, wholesome and talented members of BTS, some say fuck it, Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz from Phinneas and Ferb, or the dads from Disney’s TV show extended universe.

In a perfect world, he’d be married to Tyler the Creator, own an Arcanine and a Lapras, and don his own Sailor Scouts uniform. He tweets @GayWeebDisaster, which is also, coincidentally, how one might describe him.
