Not Safe For Work

Not suitable/safe for work (nsfw) is internet slang or shorthand. typically, the nsfw tag is used in e-mail, videos, and on interactive discussion areas to mark urls or hyperlinks which contain material such as nudity, pornography or profanity, which the viewer may not want to be seen accessing in a public or formal setting such as at work. determining a site to be nsfw is invariably subjective, and poses challenges for academics who study sexuality.
