About

The Sexual Tension Between You And is a phrasal template used on Twitter to describe an awkward or unusual feeling between yourself and a person or thing while performing something ordinary but intimate. Although Twitter users began using the phrase to describe those feelings as early as 2011, the snowclone became a popular trend in August 2020 on Twitter.

Origin

On September 11th, 2011, Twitter user @_Scottness[1] tweeted the first known example of using the phrasal template without describing something that typically is defined as sexual tension. The tweet, "The sexual tension between you and your yogurt when you forget your spoon.." garnered over 30 retweets in nine years (shown below).
