Reddit is a social news and discussion platform where users can submit content, vote on posts and comments, and engage in conversations with other users. The content on Reddit is organized into various communities, called subreddits, which are dedicated to specific topics, such as news, science, entertainment, technology, and more. Users can subscribe to subreddits that interest them and participate in discussions by commenting on posts, upvoting or downvoting content, and sharing their own content. Reddit has a large and active user base, and a large part of the website is dedicated to pornography and “Not Safe For Work” content. Here’s how the NSFW subreddit describes themselves:

Not Safe For Work (For the porn lover in all of us.) An all-encompassing pornography subreddit, from a lone nipple to the hardest of the hardcore. NSFW is typically used to describe Internet content generally inappropriate for the typical workplace, i.e., would not be acceptable in the presence of your boss and colleagues (as opposed to SFW, Safe For Work). However, anything safe for the public will be considered SFW and will be removed.

What kind of content is on /r/NSFW?

The NSFW subreddit is made up of many different kinds of pornography. The most common format is image, though there are many gifs and short videos as well. These are the most common categories to see:

  • Nude Solo Female – A woman pleasuring herself or touching herself in some way. Often masturbation.
  • Selfie – A woman taking a selfie in a sexually suggestive way, usually nude.
  • Professional Model – Professional models posing, usually nude and performing sexually suggestive acts, or looking seductive.
  • Hardcore Porn Gif – Animated GIF of sex and sexual acts.
  • Boob Reveals – A video or GIF that starts with a woman’s breasts covered by a bra or shirt, and are eventually “revealed” and shown to the viewer.
  • OnlyFans advertising – Though advertising OnlyFans (and general self promotion) is against the subreddit rules, users still find creatine ways to promote themselves and their OnlyFans content.
  • BDSM and Fetish – Some content shows bondage, dom/sub dynamics, and other BDSM acts.

What is Not Safe For Work?

“NSFW” stands for “Not Safe For Work.” It is often used as a warning label to indicate that the content being shared is not suitable for a professional or public setting. NSFW content may include explicit language, graphic images or videos, nudity, sexual content, or other materials that may be offensive or inappropriate for some viewers. It is important to respect the NSFW label, depending on what device and network you’re on, and use discretion when sharing or viewing this type of content.

Final Thoughts

Reddit is a great social media platform for browsing nearly every topic you could imagine. Sports, history, news, hobbies, and of course, pornography. The NSFW subreddit is the most general of the porn subreddits, so while it’s a good option for the casual browser, many people will look to more specific pornography subreddits.
