Acronym for Reduced Income Several Kids.
In the 80's and nineties, sociologists identified a subpopulation of the Baby Boom generation consisting of childless couples both engaged in primarily professional occupations. Designated by the acronym DINK ( Double Income No Kids), this group had substantial disposable income and heped drive the luxury markets of the time.

Approximately 20 years later, the DINK has evolved into the RISK ( Reduced Income Several Kids) and from the luxury standpoint is merely indisposed.

A risk is a person who exhibits homo-erotic or excessively cheesy behaviour. This could be a reference to the following:

Effeminate qualities
Excessively gaudy or inappropriate clothing
Cheesy or general tacky behaviour and looks.

This can lead to different uses of the word such as 'risky' when pertaining to someone's aesthetic as opposed to simply embodying a 'risk' in it's true form.

'Check that guy out! Risky bloke!'

'That chick sounds like the biggest risk'
'That guy's the biggest fucking risk ever'

'Is that bloke wearing the riskiest shirt ever or is it just me?!'

'How risky was that chick's head?'
