IN many of the other questions I’ve read, a lot of them mentioned being horny. Does it mean you’re mad or something?

The word “horny” is a slang term for wanting to have sex or being sexually aroused or excited. (You might be thinking of the word “ornery,” which means disagreeable or mean.)

Having a sex drive, desiring sex, and being turned on are normal parts of sexuality. People have different levels of sex drives — some have higher drives and some have lower.

In the beginning of adolescence, sexual desire and sexual arousal may seem a little out of control. But after a while, as people become accustomed to them, they seem less intrusive and more in their control.
