What Does BJ Mean in a Text?

BJ means "blow job," which is a slang term for the sexual act of fellatio (also known as "giving head" and "sucking off"). It is an oral sex act that is performed on a male's penis using the mouth, lips, and sometimes the throat. BJs are sometimes practiced as a form of foreplay before other sexual activities, as a sexual act in their own right, or as part of an act of mutual oral sex, colloquially referred to as a "69."

Like all sexual activities, BJs can carry risk of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) if not practiced safely. Therefore, it is recommended to use protection and communicate openly with sexual partners about health status and safe sex practices.
