The puppy eyes and begging expression of this emoji have been associated with begging for sex or sexual favors for many social media users for some time. The fact is that this emoji is used by subscribers of female streamers – conversational, educational, and, of course, explicit – to beg for attention. These people usually send donations to the girls, order special actions from them, and are very happy when they receive greetings.

Over time, the emoji was used to troll those subscribers, and popular accounts who were suspected of being sycophantic in order to get romantic attention or without such a purpose.

As you can see, even such a seemingly obvious emoji can have some extremely diametric meanings, so be careful with its use.


As with many other emoji, the Pleading Emoji is quite a versatile emoji, as in today’s culture even the most naive and primitive things can take on a deeper or ironic meaning. Of course, in most cases, the Pleading Emoji still means a plea for help or forgiveness, but we should not forget about the other side of the issue – seduction and a request for attention.
