When it comes to school, anything crude or distracting from the educational experience qualifies for this trope, in addition to the above.

Also particularly helpful to parents who are at home - believe it or not, some people on the Internet do have small children and still find time to netsurf. These same people like to have a warning to wait until the children are in another room before clicking a link.

NSFW can be applied to vulgar or violent, as well as pornographic, content. Also applied as a near-synonym for {{Squick}}. It may also be applied if the link requires sound, as not everyone has headphones at work (or should be wearing headphones, depending on the job).

Now it's replaced with a non-sensical parody of viewing recommendations printed in a tiny font.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' Website/DeviantArt fancomic ''Savage Company'' has a page where DaChief reads Nick's search history aloud. It starts off innocuous enough, but then degenerates into NSFW searches.

So called because if you are caught reading a page that is Not Safe For Work...[[CaptainObvious at work]], you can get in a LOT of trouble. For the more graphic [=NSFW=] pages, simply having them in the hard drive or cache of a work computer can get you fired. Even showing up in the server log files could be unhealthy.

Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/Injustice2'', a possible opening battle dialog between Injustice!Batman and Injustice!Harley is that the latter had a NSFW dream with the Joker.
