Hey, WTTP? Maybe if we like what we see we can MIRL. I know of a good 1174.
Does that make sense to you? Me neither. But, if CNN is to be believed, these are a sampling of the acronyms used by teenagers on the web who are looking to get frisky without getting caught.
CNN published an article yesterday titled “28 Internet Acronyms Every Parent Should Know.” The acronyms, they claim, are used frequently by teens looking to swap nude pictures online or meet up for sex.
Of course, there’s some debate about how often these acronyms are really used, but we’ll get to that later. For now, here’s the list:
1. IWSN - I want sex now
2. GNOC - Get naked on camera
3. NIFOC - Naked in front of computer
4. PIR - Parent in room
5 CU46 - See you for sex
6. 53X - Sex
7. 9 - Parent watching
8. 99 - Parent gone
9. 1174' - Party meeting place
10. THOT - That hoe over there
11. CID - Acid (the drug)
12. Broken - Hungover from alcohol
13. 420 - Marijuana
14. POS - Parent over shoulder
15. SUGARPIC - Suggestive or erotic photo
16. KOTL - Kiss on the lips
17. (L)MIRL - Let's meet in real life
18. PRON - Porn
19. TDTM - Talk dirty to me
20. 8 - Oral sex
21. CD9 - Parents around/Code 9
22. IPN - I'm posting naked
23. LH6 - Let's have sex
24. WTTP - Want to trade pictures?
25. DOC - Drug of choice
26. TWD - Texting while driving
27. GYPO - Get your pants off
28. KPC- Keeping parents clueless
Got it? Now go look at your teenager’s phone and weep. They’re probably having 53X on CID as we speak.
