‘Netflix and Chill’

I love Netflix and I love to chill. I mean, who doesn’t like those odd days where you decide to do nothing other than get comfy and watch films all day. Netflix has ‘everything’ so it’s the perfect thing to have when you want to relax all day and watch films.

Therefore, it is safe to say we all love a bit of Netflix and chill. I know I do for sure!

Until very recently of course…

Well, it has been surfing the Internet that the term ‘Netflix and chill’ isn’t what it’s made out to be. I won’t beat around the bush, but Netflix and chill means putting Netflix on and hooking up (or in whatever other order there is) with no strings attached. I don’t know about anyone else but I find this very absurd.

How, When and Why did Netflix- the Internet-based video service and the term chill get associated with such indecency?

I am not saying anything is wrong with hook ups, but why are the words Netflix  and chill use in replace of the actual word. I can understand why the word chill is used to describe what actually isn’t chilling as people have been using it for a very long time to describe indecency, however, it still doesn’t make it right.

I haven’t done my research about this new term as I don’t want to see what comes up and I don’t want to be reading details. But from what I’ve heard and the memes I’ve seen, I believe I know just enough to make my point.

Adding the fact that so many people have been asking me if I want to ‘Netflix and chill’ now makes me feel irritated when I hear the term.

I do understand it may sound better asking someone if they want Netflix and chill rather than asking something such as “do you want to come mine and hook up”.

It still doesn’t make it right, so get your acts together guys!

  1. I really doubt it started out that way. Maybe people got together to spend time together and watch Netflix and somewhere along the lines they started making out and eventually had sex. Also, there are those who believe if someone of the opposite sex invites you over to ‘watch tv’, it’s never about actually watching TV.

    1. Yes I agree. I found at after what’s it’s all about and just like you said, that’s how it all started
