Where does smexy come from?

One early use of smexy comes in a 1997 fanfiction story, which mentions “smexy time” between two characters. Smexy, here, appears to be just a playful and more intensive version of sexy.

The term spreads in online fan forums, including for discussions of characters in video games and anime.

Smexy, as a specific blend of smart and sexy, is entered on Urban Dictionary in 2004 and appears on Twitter by 2008.

Smexy Books, for one instance of the term, launched in 2010 to provide reviews of romance novels—which are presumably both smart and sexy.

Who uses smexy?

Smexy is used as a cutesy way to call a person both good-looking and intelligent. It’s especially used of men by women on the internet.

Smexy, though, may not necessarily imply smartness but just a degree of sexiness that prompts a kind of giddy affection.

For others, smexy is that endearing mix of the dorky and the adorable, as seen in the 2014 comedic YouTube song “The Smexy Song.”
