TikTokers Have Been Asking Strangers Their Body Count and It's More Than a Little Uncomfortable


The popular app TikTok is probably known best for its weird trends and challenges. Users on the app have come under fire for things like faking seizures to Juice WRLD's "Lucid Dream" (before he actually died of a seizure) and complaining about the friendzone by welcoming people to "Simp nation."

But in new and equally uncomfortable TikTok trends, users are now asking strangers for their body count — and it's just as weird as it sounds. Here's what it actually means.

What does "body count" mean in TikTok terms?

No, we're not referring to how many people one person has killed. "Body count" refers to how many people a person has had sex with.

What people define as "sex" differs from person to person, but it generally refers to sexual intercourse, though some include other sexual acts in their definition, increasing their body count.
