Our world has become very liberal in the way we function in many relationships as well as what societal norms teach us is okay. 

One of the ways a lot of people keep relationships fun, alive and really exciting is by a term we have com to know as ‘sexting’.

So what is ‘sexting’?

It is when you send your mate, potential mate or someone to just flirt with, a text message that has sexual content attached or within its textual wording.

This can be a way to lure someone into your life or simply keep your relationship or marriage from getting stale. I believe this is a good and easy way to turn your mate on and safely prime them for sexual pleasures with you!

What harm can it be to send sexy pictures of yourself to someone you love?

Well, actually I would err on the side of caution if you are not in a long-term relationship or marriage and fully confident in the person your are messaging.

Play, but with caution…

I am all for this kind of foreplay and sexiness but I strongly encourage you to send these types of messages only to people who you can completely trust.

The downfall of sexting the wrong person is that it can completely destroy your reputation, cost you your career, terminate other friendships and potentially harm your life while countless others judge you if the wrong material get in the wrong hands. Disasterous!

I have heard of people getting fired immediately once risky pictures went viral on social media and some of you may have encountered similar stories.

I also encourage you not to send any type of content to anyone you just meet as they may not be telling the truth of their status and you could end up destroying a perfectly healthy relationship.

Some men and women love to see how far they can go with a new flirt, without actually cheating.sexting effect on relationship_2However, in some people’s minds this is a way of cheating without actually physically touching another human being. To each his/her own when it comes to defining boundaries and what is acceptable and what is not.

Just be cautious and have fun if you feel in your gut you can trust the person you are sexting!

Benefits of sexting

On the bright side of sexting and you being flirtatious, it could certainly enhance your sexuality, creativity and fulfill sexual fantasies.

The person receiving your messages usually gets turned on and you two begin to manifest what your evening, next getaway or meeting entails.

Lots of women use props, lingerie, and pose in certain provocative positions to get a specific reaction from their partners.

So you can remain open to sending and receiving these types of messages, if this is a way to openly communicate with a partner and you both feel comfortable doing it, then keep on sending!

Never push your beliefs of what you like on someone else, unless they are okay with trying something new!

Good luck in creating the type of fun you want to have and be sure to let your significant other know how the experience made you feel. When they receive positive feedback from you, they are more likely to sext you again, soon. Just be yourself and have fun creating!
