SpaceX and Tesla founder Elon Musk wants the world to know that Mars makes him want to nut.

The business magnate has spent the past few days on Twitter describing in somewhat graphic detail his love for the Red Planet.

The fiasco began last Friday after a Twitter user stated in a now-deleted tweet that she desired to travel to Mars due to the lack of men. A parody account for the planet, which describes itself in its bio as the “Motherland of Elon Musk,” replied soon after.

“I don’t want you. Only Elon,” the Mars account said.

The tweet was picked up only 10 minutes later by Musk, who expressed his mutual admiration for the 4th planet from the Sun.

“I want you too baby,” Musk replied.

The Mars Twitter page kept the banter going, asking the billionaire: “When are you coming over babe?”

Not to be outdone, Musk quickly turned the conversation from small talk to intimate sexting serenade.

“Send me hot pics & I’ll be right over,” Musk quipped.

After receiving a photo of the dry and barren wasteland that is Mars, Musk decided that the next logical step was to tell his nearly 25 million followers about his orgasms. In a reference to “No Nut November,” an internet meme in which participants abstain from masturbation, the Tesla founder expressed happiness that he would not be encumbered by the month’s restrictions.

If that wasn’t clear enough, Musk reiterated the point to make sure everyone was aware that yes, Mars makes him want to nut.

The eye-brow raising tweet has thus far received over 21,000 retweets and a wide-range of reactions. Twitter users shared their joy, disgust, and confusion in the replies, unleashing a furry of counter-memes in the process.

The official Twitter account for Pornhub offered to give a helping hand.

Others threatened to send Musk to “The Ranch,” a reference to the rehabilitation center TV personality Dr. Phil sends at-risk youth to.

Ryan Wyatt, head of gaming & VR at YouTube, seemingly struggled to comprehend the situation.

With over 3,500 replies and counting, reactions to the nut tweet run the gamut.

Although the tweet is likely Musk’s most head-turning to date, the billionaire is no stranger to bizarre meme-related content. In fact, Musk announced earlier this month that he had purchased the web domain

Musk was even temporarily locked out of his Twitter account in October of last year after a slew of anime memes led the platform to believe that he may have been hacked.

The entrepreneur even hinted Monday that he would host “Meme Review,” a show run by YouTube’s most-subscribed-to creator PewDiePie.
