A word used by locals of Woodhaven, NY when referring to pornography. Though it may have been used this way by many other people, its popularity had increased after the creation of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, in which the protagonist of the game had to visit a location known as Prawn Island. Incidentally, the number one business on Prawn Island was a Porn Studio. The derivation of the use of the word Prawn, comes from the Internet lingo colloquialism to misspell the word Porn by reversing the center letters and replacing the o with a zero. "Pr0n". Use of the term "Prawn" has lead to the creation of a euphemistic meaning of the word "Shrimping". Shrimping: the act of watching porn while conducting a form of self gratification. Also: the act of surfing the web for new pornographic material.
<While on a crowded New York City J train>

K: Before I left the house I went shrimping for some Prawn and found this really crazy one with Sasha Grey, I sent it to you so you can check it out.

D: Seriously dude? I really didn't want to know that moments before getting on this train with me, you were shrimping.
