Safe work and NSFW

What is NSFW tag's as seen in openclipart.org, while uploading clipart file:

wikipedia says :Not suitable/safe for work (NSFW), not work-suitable/safe (NWS), or not school-suitable (NSS) is Internet slang or shorthand. Typically, the NSFW tag is used in E-mail, movies (such as on Youtube) and on interactive discussion areas (such as internet forums, blogs and community websites) to mark URLs or hyperlinks  which may be sexually explicit or include audio containing profanity, helping the reader avoid potentially objectionable content. For example, one may tag a URL as unsafe:

http://www.example.com/sextape.html (NSFW)

Or one could warn the user by altering the actual URL (Notice the xx in hxxp):

hxxp://www.example.com/sextape.html
