Beto Sex Tweet is the nickname given to a tweet by political analyst Leah McElrath in which she compared the strengths and weaknesses of potential Democratic presidential candidates in the 2020 election Richard Ojeda, Michael Avenatti, and Beto O'Rourke using sexual analogies. The analogy with which she described O'Rourke, meant in praise, gained notoriety for being particularly graphic, leading to jokes and media coverage.
On November 12th, 2018, Twitter user and political analyst Leah McElrath tweeted a comparison of potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidates Richard Ojeda, Michael Avenatti, and Beto O'Rourke using sexual analogies. She said the former two "are like the guy who thinks good sex is pumping away while you’re making a grocery list in your head wondering when he’ll be done" and that O'Rourke was "like the guy who is all sweet and nerdy but holds you down and makes you cum until your calves cramp." Her tweet gained over 1,600 retweets and 11,000 likes, as well as 1,600 responses (shown below).
The tweet gained swift notoriety online. The tweet was amplified by Will & Grace star Debra Messing, who quote-tweeted it saying "This. Is. Everything." (shown below, left). It also spread thanks to a tweet by Will Menaker of Chapo Trap House who sarcastically tweeted "I've BEEN saying this!" (shown below, right).
Many Twitter users responded with disgust at the tweet. User @BrandyLJensen tweeted joking she was joining No Nut November because of the tweet (shown below, left). User @FreeDarko joked the tweet was distracting from Stan Lee's death, which happened the same day (shown below, right).
The tweet and its reactions were covered by multiple news outlets including Daily Dot, Vice, and Mel Magazine, the lattermost of which argued that the "calves cramping" part of the tweet was actually an indicator of bad sex. McElrath responded to the backlash by stating it was an indicator of toxic masculinity that influenced the 2016 United States Presidential Election and would harm 2020.
