The D is an abbreviated term most commonly referencing to the word “Dick”, a slang term for the male penis. On the internet, the term is often used as an euphemism for requesting intercourse, specifically from a man, in either first or third person narration. This is commonly done in the form of catchphrases such as “I Want The D” or “She Wants The D”.
“The D” first made an appearance on the 2004 single “So Sexy” by American rapper Twista featuring R&B artist R. Kelly. The song was the second single released from Twista’s fourth album, Kamikaze, and became Twista’s third straight top 40 hit from the album, having peaked at 25 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Interlude Lyrics (R. Kelly):
OHH! And this is for them girls that be wantin – the D
And this is for them girls that be lovin – the D
And this is for them girls that be ridin – the D
The ones that like to keep the D up inside ’em now
On December 19th, 2004, Urban Dictionary user QT submitted the earliest known entry for “The D.”
On October 15th, 2005, Urban Dictionary user BigJimDx submitted another article explaining the meaning of “The D,” citing Twista’s 2004 single “So Sexy” as the origin of the term. However, the use of the term gained much of its online notoriety through Tumblr in 2012, following the viral spread of Give Her the Dick, an oddly phrased comment that was originally posted on the adult website Pornhub (shown below) and went onto inspire the abbreviated expression “Give Her the D,” which in turn gave rise to a variety of non-verbal representations and visual puns.
Throughout 2012, the phrase “she wants the D” was mentioned in dozens of dating and relationship advice threads on Yahoo Answers and the Bodybuilding Forums. In late August 2012, two Twitter accounts named “Give Her The D” and “Don’t Give Her The D” were launched. On January 1st, 2013, a Facebook page titled “She Wants the D” was created, racking up more than a million likes in the next 9 months.
