PNP

1. What does PNP stand for?

Party and Play

PnP stands for "party and play," which is when people consume drugs to initiate or enhance sexual activities. It is a dangerous practice since it often leads to drug addiction and a high STD transmission rate.

The majority of PnP participants are homosexual men, but other demographics may take part in PnPing. People looking to PnP often find and coordinate with each other online through chatrooms/forums and dating services.

PnP participants typically use methamphetamine since it provides prolonged euphoria. However, participants may also use cocaine, ecstasy, GHB/GBL anesthetics, and ketamine.

Example

"Wow, that night of PnPing really messed up Peter's life."
"Yeah bro, say no to drugs."
Just say no to PnP and other drugs

2. What does PnP stand for in computing?

Plug and Play

PnP stands for "plug and play," which refers to hardware devices that work as soon as you plug them into a computer. Examples of these devices include most keyboards, monitors, and mice.

With PnP devices, users don't have to manually configure the device, install drivers for the device, or notify the computer a device has been added. Instead, the computer recognizes the PnP device automatically and works with it (computer systems may load new drivers for the device, in some cases).

For example, most keyboards can just be plugged into the USB port on a computer (unless they are wireless). Once they are plugged in, the computer recognizes the keyboard and the user can begin using it.

The biggest advantage of PnP devices is their convenience for users looking to upgrade different components in their computer set-up. This allows novice computer users to more easily customize their computers.

Example

"Just connect your PnP input devices and you should be up-and-running in no time."
