What's a horga'hn pin ( or horgon for the uninitiated)?

More and more Trekkies are buying pins of the sex symbol sex symbol first seen in Star Trek: The Next Generation and learning about it was an experience that needed to be shared.


Understanding the complexities of a Fandom inside joke is always a ride. But, this particular one was more peculiar than most.

I came across a few Trekkies who were looking to buy horga'hn pins. So, I was determined to find out what it was.

I found out it's a statuette that represents a fertility symbol from the planet Rita. According to Memory Alpha Fandom, "displaying one publicly indicated that one was seeking jamaharon, a mysterious and pleasurable sexual practice native to that world." The statuette was first introduced in the "Captain's Holiday" episode.

Since I was still confused about what the horga'hn was exactly I took to reddit, and the replies were mostly a bunch of dudes fighting over who has gotten laid more times this week. But, then Twitter saved the day. So, here are a few of my favorite tweets on the effects of horga'hn:

I demand a refund.
