Sexy Primes: How numbers can be sexy?

Sexy primes are prime numbers that differ from each other by 6. The term “sexy” in sexy primes refers to mathematical six and relates a Latin word for six: sex.

But you can also find three prime numbers that differ by six; the so-called sexy prime triplets (p, p + 6, p + 12), such as 7, 13, 19 and there are sexy prime quadruplets (p, p + 6, p + 12, p + 18), such as 5, 11, 17, 23. And last but not least, there is one — and only one — sexy prime quintuplet: 5, 11, 17, 23, 29.
