10 Teen sexting codes all parents need to know

If you have teens, they're probably on their cell phones ALL.THE.TIME. But not because they're speaking to somebody, but rather because they're texting their lives away as if the world is coming to an end. Most probably, though, if you try to read what the heck they're so furiously texting you won't understand a word. And that's because kids today don't really use normal words to communicate, they use acronyms, symbols and abbreviations so they can text faster--and so you can't understand what they're saying. Well, you might be surprised to find out that many of these codes can get pretty sexual in nature.

For example, do you know what your daughter means if she texts the number 8 to her boyfriend?


Simple. The number 8 means oral sex.

Here's a list of the top 10 texting codes you SHOULD know:

  1. Banana=Penis
  2. ASLP=Age/Sex/Location/Picture
  3. DUM=Do You Masturbate?
  4. DUSL=Do You Scream Loud?
  5. GNOC=Get Naked On Cam
  6. FMLTWIA=F*** Me Like The Whore I Am
  7. IWSN=I Want Sex Now
  8. kitty=vagina
  9. IMEZRU=I Am Easy, Are You?
  10. GYPO=Get Your Pants Off

And check out this codes all of which are meant as warnings that you are around: CD9 and P911, PAL (Parents Are Listening), PAW (Parents Are Watching), PIR (Parents In Room), POS (Parent Over Shoulder), and MOS (Mom Over Shoulder).
