English term or phrase: sexy
how would i say "your sexy"
sara
Afrikaans translation:jy's sexy
Explanation:
I assumed you meant "you're sexy" and not "your sexy", since "sexy" is not a noun (unless you want to use "sexy" as a pet name, in which case you can sustitute it for any pet name you want such as "liefie" or "bokkie").

Apart from "jy's sexy" "jy is sexy" will also work. Transliterations such as "seksie" may be encountered, but fail IMHO.
