As Charles also mentioned, there's been discussion of this on the  
mailing list before. The short story is this: everyone's work is  
different (I've actually had work were I *had* to look at at stuff  
which would be NSFW for most), so it wouldn't be very useful to try an  
encode a single standard.

If you still want to capture the semantic of "I think this is NSFW"  
you could use xFolk or hReview and tag the link as 'nsfw'.
