Sex Date Personals Explained for Beginners

Setting up a personal ad for sex dates is challenging for the beginner. However, if you have an understanding of how the profiles are set up you’ll have an easier time getting involved. Here are some of the terms that confuse most new people, and what they mean.

Short Ads

Since most personal ads have limited space, most people choose to use acronyms for descriptions. This will let you pack more information in to your sex date personal ad without going over the character limit.

Common Acronyms

FWB is a common term that means ‘friends with benefits’. You may also see this as ‘NSA’ (no strings attached) and ‘DCE’ (discrete casual encounters). These all mean the same basic thing.

ASL is a way to shorten ‘age/sex/location’. You’ll see this when people don’t want to mess around and are requesting that you include this information in your correspondence.

GFE or BFE means girlfriend experience or boyfriend experience. This is someone who wants to be treated in a more intimate way, and not necessarily just sex. If you want someone to take you out before sex, this is what you need to say.

M4T, MFT are ways of saying ‘male for transvestite’. You will see terms like this more often in adult and alternative personals.

IRL means ‘in real life’. This is used when someone doesn’t want an online only experience.

MF4W or MM4F are ways of denoting group sex or threesomes. The acronyms stand for man or woman based on the letter used.

PNP and 420 are codes for drug use. 420 is someone who smokes pot, and PNP generally refers to meth.
