If you’re a millennial, you’ve probably heard of (or have even used) the phrase “Netflix and chill.” The simple slogan that your parents may think means to binge-watch movies for hours on the streaming service has become known as a euphemism for sexual activity. The viral catchphrase fueled by memes, GIFs, tweets, and more, has translated into the English language as a slang term to mean “hooking up.”

While the popular phrase continues to be used in everyday life (especially via text), more companies have taken a page from Netflix and have launched their own streaming services to compete with the corporation. Disney just launched their digital platform Disney+, and users have already created a new phrase to allude to sexual activities. So, move over “Netflix and chill,” because now the world has been introduced to “Disney Plus and thrust.”
