As Mr. Confucius said, 食色性也, food and sex play important roles in one's life, when you wants to eat, there is a word in Chinese 饿 to illustrate this state, but there seems no such a word in Chinese to describe the situation when you are horny, or perhaps there is, but beyond my knowledge. So anybody can help?

Horny

4. (Slang: Vulgar): lustful; sexually excited.

發情

be horny; libidinous

Examples:

He is horny - 他在發情

Horny woman - 發情的女人

Horny man - 發情的男人

To be subtle, you can use 亢奮

亢奮

very excited

Examples:

He is horny - 他亢奮起來

  • 发情 seems to describe animals. If I want to say I am horny to my wife, can I say 我发情 to her? It sounds ridiculous, doesn't it? – NanningYouth Jul 29 '17 at 2:24

饥渴,example, “你太饥渴了!” meaning you are sexually thirsty.

  • That is figuratively speaking, but I'd like to know if there is any simple word in real use for that purpose with literal meaning. – NanningYouth Jul 29 '17 at 2:25
  • there are several words that can express it, but it depends the situations what word should be used. besides the words already mentioned above, there are more, 性欲,性感,欲火焚身,欲火中烧...... – dan Jul 30 '17 at 2:44
