I ran across a strange hypothetical query in the youtube video Why Kabaneri FAILS as an Attack on Titan Clone by Gigguk, around the five minute mark: "Are back Muscles supposed to give me boners?"

When I looked up "boner" in dictionaries, the definition is "a stupid mistake" which doesn't fit in the context.

  • A boner is an erection. It's also a word for mistake. vocabulary.com/dictionary/boner – user66974 May 12 '17 at 14:46

    Please add context to your question. What was going on in the video when you heard the phrase? When you searched for "boner" in dictionaries, why don't they give you enough information? – Matt E. Эллен May 12 '17 at 14:50

    @NhuThaiSanhNguyen Could you again edit your question to address the necessity of a dictionary search? "When you searched for boner in dictionaries, why don't they give you enough information?" – Andrew Leach May 13 '17 at 12:45

A "boner" is a term for male penis erection.

To "give someone a boner" means to sexually excite someone, esp. a male.

  • I think that's the right answer, it fits the context – Nhu Thai Sanh Nguyen May 12 '17 at 14:52
