Police Are Using This Hilarious Guide To Warn Parents About Teens Sexting

Remember that v informative piece of children's literature "Everyone Poops?"

Well, it's 2017, and I would like to petition for a new edition entitled "Everyone Sexts."

The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) recently posted a guide to Facebook featuring "secret texting codes your kids could be using," Metro UK reports.

If you thought "DTF" was bad, just wait until you see what questionable slang today's teens are sending out:

The post reads,

Understand txt alk? Thot u did? Ave a lk at ur kids devices & use this 2 translate! Pls share It's 1drfl when you get to know it! TLK2UL8R

Hmmm, I wonder if they knew what they were saying when they wrote "Thot."

Originally created by the podcast "The Kim Kamando Show," the guide maps out all of the abbreviations teens are using to keep their sexy talk low-key.

The post has reached nearly 4,ooo shares and 1,000 comments. In a follow-up statement on their Facebook page, PSNI said, "Prevention is better than cure, so speak to your kids about their online activity, what they are using and respect the age limits of social media platforms."

Though you may not send nudes on the reg, I can bet you've found yourself curled up in bed (or being super shady at your desk at work) typing out a sentence filled with such tantalizing characters, your mother would crumble to the ground if she saw or read it aloud.

But it's nothing to be ashamed of. Sexting has become such a regular part of our culture (especially with younger generations) as a way to initiate a sexual encounter with someone who may not be in walking distance.

The amount of effort now used to cloak sexting is admittedly a little mind boggling. Phrases like "Where are your right now?" or "I'm coming over" that hint at the desire of something sexual have progressed to abbreviated codes to disguise any hint of all things XXX.

If you want to get a little raunchy, do you actually think sending "TDTM" — which means "talk dirty to me" — is the way to go? Sending "MOS" — aka "mom over shoulder" — probably means you've yet to make it to second base.

Kids these days need to slow it down, or just do what a normal person would do and send a tasteful nude that can speak for itself.

Also, this guide says "Q2C" — which means "quick to cum" — is a popular sext the teens are sending. Whatever you do, never send that code.

That's not a turn on — you should probably see someone about it.
