Related Explainer: What Does 'Flicker Goon' And 'Flickergooning' Mean? The TikTok Slang Confusing Everyone Explained

This entry contains content that may be considered sensitive to some viewers.


Flicker Goon, also known as Flickergooning, is a slang term derived from "gooning." The phrase was popularized on TikTok in 2024 as part of a wider ironic trend about masturbation habits, in the same vein as memes about edging. The term "Flicker Goon" appeared in a meme slideshow on TikTok in May 2024 before being reposted to X / Twitter later that month, prompting discussions from people puzzled by what the expression could mean. "Flicker Goon" is a phrase likely derived from combining boxing and exercise terms or based on video game "teching," as indicated by joking variations presented in the comments of the original TikTok post that popularized the term.


On May 22nd, 2024, TikToker[1] @bestsparring posted a slideshow depicting two manga panels that read, "I can goon for 8 hours straight" and "I can Flicker goon for 7 seconds." The post gathered over 620,000 views and 60,000 likes in a day (seen below).

The comments on the TikTok post showed other users exhibiting similar wordplay by combining various boxing, calisthenics and fitness terms with TikTokisms like "munting," "edging," and "jelqing." Other terms like "sweats" indicate video game lingo, inferring that "flicker goon" could be an imaginary, advanced video game technique referred to as "tech" or "teching" (examples shown below).
