If you've ever sent or received a sext, you're not alone. That number may even be higher now, as the study came out just as Snapchat, then an ephemeral multimedia messaging platform built around disappearing photos and video, was taking off. This is a judgment-free zone. If you want to send a nude and have a willing participant , then send a nude. Human bodies are beautiful! But it's also totally normal to want to maintain control of the way your nudes are seen and distributed.
Maybe it wasn't a photo of your body, but perhaps a suggestive message in a private chat. We may all be fiends on messaging apps, but we've got to take our privacy seriously. Keeping your personal information private, as well as staying safe , is essential when using dating apps. There are a myriad sexting apps available with the mere tap of a screen, but how do you know which one is best for you?
The misfortune of sexting pics to your parents is not something you want to do in any way, shape, or form. But cringingly that's exactly what's happened to these unfortunate women, who have learnt the hard way the dangers of our interconnected, instant messaging times. Because lets face it, if you are going to send sexting pics to the wrong person, your parents will be the last people on earth you would choose to be the recipient. Alas, accidents happen and sending a text to your parents by mistake is something many of us have done. But it's fine when that text was to your significant other just asking if they could wash the dishes.
Earlier this year, my boyfriend started a new job after years of working freelance. One day I was feeling kind of frisky, so I sent him a sexy photo via Facebook Messenger. Namely, the fact that he was in an open office. With other people.
