What does TDTM stand for?

Talk dirty to me

TDTM stands for "Talk dirty to me," which is a request made to a person to speak vulgarly for sexual gratification. It is most often seen online or in text messages.

The acronym gained popularity as online chatrooms and instant messaging services became more prominent in the late-1990s and early-2000s. TDTM is commonly used by teenagers and young adults but may be used by older adults, as well. Be careful who you use it with because you may be labelled a "perv."

TDTM may also be used in reference to the "Talk Dirty to Me" rock song by Poison, which was popular in the 1980s. The song was released in 1986 on the "Look What the Cat Dragged In" album.
