What Does ACCOUNTANT Mean in a Text?

ACCOUNTANT means "Sex Worker."

On TikTok, the viral "I'm an accountant" song is played by users who are sex workers and who dodge questions about how they truly earn money by telling people they are accountants.

TikTokers use the song as a tongue-in-cheek way to dodge questions about their true job, because "nobody asks you questions when you say you're an accountant." Originally, Rocky Paterra wrote the song about how he would dodge questions as a struggling actor. The term was then adopted by people working across the sex industry. It has become the meme song of choice for strippers, "sugar babies," and content creators on the subscription platform OnlyFans (OF).
