What is sexting?

Sexting is the exchange or forwarding of sexually explicit messages, photos or videos to others, mostly between smartphones. Sexting can also involve the use of a computer or any digital device. Mostly messengers are used. The term was first popularized in the early 21st century and is a compound of the words “sex” and “texting,” where the latter is meant in a broad sense – texting, possibly with images.

There are sites (services) for finding partners for this kind of messaging. Here people are looking for online flirting, virtual communication, sometimes anonymous.

Sexting is a role-playing game

One of the participants can be the narrator and the other can be the director. The roles differ in that the director sets the communication vector and comes up with the actions, while the narrator describes his feelings and emotions from what happens due to the realization of the director’s idea. Don’t worry if you feel more comfortable in any role. But don’t rule out experimentation either – you can always switch it up.

Rules for sexting

There are “unspoken” rules that can help during sexting and keep users safe from unwanted consequences of digital sex:

Use only an app you trust.

Try to understand if your partner is really interested in such communication.

Take sexting slowly. Don’t rush things or put pressure on your partner.

Think of sexting as the first step toward intimacy with your partner. Think of the messages as a way to express your feelings and desires.

Treat what’s happening as improvisation – you don’t have to come up with scenarios.

Don’t judge your actions – try to be open to how you feel.

Don’t ask for intimate photos and videos if you’re not ready to send them.

Take time for yourself after sexting. This practice often has an impact on your psychological state. Be sensitive to yourself and your body. Don’t become a critic of your actions, words and emotions – just analyze your feelings and reactions.
