Mature and X-Rated Acronyms used on Instant Messaging (IM)


WARNING: If you are offended easily you may well want to skip this section.

OK Now that we have covered the common ones we will list the X rated ones. These abbreviations started on online adult meeting sites and have trickled down to the young adult population.

So what does “m4w “ mean?
The first letter is for the one seeking and the last letter is the one being searched for.
m4w = man for woman / w4m = woman for man

Some variations: if there's a "t" there it's either transsexual, transgender or transvestite. m4t = man 4 transsexual

If there's a plural form (mm4ww, mw4w, w4ww etc.), "m" will always be man, "w" will still be woman. And "t"... well you see where this goes.

The first letter signifies marital status or sexual orientation, the second letter is race and the third is gender.

SAF = Single Asian Female
BiWM = Bisexual White Male
MBM = Married Black Male
GHM = Gay Hispanic Male
DWF = Divorced White Female
SWPM = Single White Professional Male
If there's a "j" in the middle, it stands for "Jewish."
SJPM = Single Jewish Professional Male
If they post only two letters, they don't want to reveal either their marital status or race.
WM = White Male SF = Single Female
