About

Safe Horny is a slang term used to refer to video game characters that are seen as "corporate-approved" and tame enough to be attracted to. Such characters are generally not in dressed overly skimpy outfits, and expressing attraction to them supposedly does not elicit backlash from a wider internet audience. Some examples of safe horny characters include male characters marketed as "hot," "muscle mommy" archetypes like Lady Dimitrescu, as well as redesigned versions of historically overtly sexualized female characters. The phrase "safe horny" comes from the term safe edgy.

Origin

Amazon is what I'd call safe horny. Sorceress is hyperfeminine, "oversexualized", and therefore "appeals to the male gaze", so not allowed.

I don't even think this should be called "safe horny", some of these people are clearly discussing the things they want done to them for sexual gratification. I hate how often displaying domineering, aggressive sexual behavior is frowned upon, but submissive displays are totally okay and acceptable. I guess it just annoys me that, these equally sexualized public displays don't get the same treatment.
