Spell Coconut With Your Waist or the Coconut Challenge refers to a piece of sexual advice that suggests that while on top during sex, women should move their hips as if they were writing the word "coconut." The advice became a running joke on social media in July 2019 due to the specificity of the action, with some women saying they were excited to try it. The move became popularly known as the "coconut challenge" on TikTok throughout the 2020s.


While the exact origin of the idea is unclear, it was first mentioned on Twitter by user @danielmaven[5] on February 14th, 2019 (shown below).

The phrase's surge in popularity during the summer of 2019 likely originated in the Kenyan Facebook group Kilimani Mums Udaku Zone KMUZ. On July 11th, 2019, the Kenyan publication Kenyan Post[1] posted about how women in the group had responded to a woman asking how to ride a man (have sex on top of him) with the advice "spell coconut with your waist" (shown below).
