What does wet mean?


When something is wet, like a whip or a player's jump shot, it is excellent. Primarily teenagers and young adults use the term on social media, but they may also say it aloud.

Typically, being wet, like when someone says, "you're all wet," is a bad thing. But, language evolves, and "wet" as a descriptor for something outstanding became popular in 2021 (the term's origin is unclear).

An example of when you might use it is commenting on someone's impressive outfit at the club. Or, you might describe a person's sick bars as wet.


Dang, did you see his new Js?
Those are wet, boi
Luka's wet jumper
