Compared to physical sex, sexting is really safe. There’s no risk of sexually transmitted infections or pregnancy. Don’t like what your partner is saying? You can stop the conversation at any time and block the person from contacting you again.
Of course, if you share nude or erotic photos, there’s always a risk that your partner will share them around without your consent. That’s one of the risks of sexting, but you can avoid this by sticking to words and not sending images. You can also look for a sexting app; there are several out there that are designed to help you maintain any level of privacy you like.
Sexting Is Linked to Higher Sexual Satisfaction
Remember that study I mentioned above? It also discovered that people who sext tend to have better relationships and better sex, especially when the relationship is on the casual side. Although the study didn’t show the same results for people in committed relationships, sexting can still be a great way to be on your lover’s mind anytime, anywhere.
Sexting Can Help Break Your Sexual Routine
So, the physical sex has gotten a little routine. It happens in every relationship. With a little sexting, you can rekindle the sexy flame with your lover. Are they in a meeting? Tell them about the sexy undergarments you’re currently wearing. At a dinner with their parents? Share your fantasies about satisfying them orally under the table.
One thing I love is being able to share sexy thoughts in public places without anyone knowing. I often sext when I'm out for drinks with friends. It helps me remain spontaneous while being considerate of the situation.
As Always, Be Safe
As with everything that has to do with sex, safety should be your first priority. Learn how to protect your privacy if you are sharing images or videos with people you don’t know very well, and learn about the laws that forbid others from using these images without your consent. Use a chatting app for sexting with strangers or near-strangers instead of the native texting app on your phone to protect your phone number.
When done right, sexting is a great way to indulge in your desires and fantasies. Anonymous or committed, sexting is popular because it’s easy, safe and really gets our minds going - and you know what they say about the brain: it’s our biggest erogenous zone.
