What Does Seggs Mean?

"Seggs" means "sex." It is an example of algospeak (the abbreviation, deliberate misspelling, or substitution of words in order to bypass automated content moderation systems). It is widely used on TikTok and other social media platforms, as well as in text messaging. It also represents a playful approach to discussing or referring to sex, using alternative spellings to inject humor into conversations. For example:

  • My post with the word sex got deleted by the moderator, so I'm spelling it "seggs" instead. Let's see if it gets flagged.
  • Lets have a chat about seggs, to make sure we're on the same page.
Besides "seggs," alternative spellings and euphemisms like "secks" and "sexx" are similarly used to navigate the constraints of social media content policies or simply to add a layer of levity to the discourse. These alternative expressions help content remain accessible in spaces where explicit terms might be flagged or removed, as well as allowing users to discuss topics that might be sensitive or taboo in a more light-hearted manner.
