A YOUTUBE video where straight men learn about and react to what happens when they use Grindr has attracted 200,000 views after it was posted on Wednesday this week.

Video blogger Neil McNeil underwent an experiment where he handed over his Grindr app and profile to his straight male friends to gauge their reactions, and documented it all.

While the gay community knows all about the app and the controversy it sometimes attracts, in the video the nine men discuss the meanings behind the abbreviations BB, DDF and UC — and their reactions are amusing.

What do your straight friends think of Grindr?
