Experts say the bottom line is that many adults are sexting to express themselves sexually -- but must be careful in the ways they use it."The act itself is neutral, what matters is how it's used," Allen says. “Generally the hysteria over ‘sexting’ is [because] it’s seen as ilicit or transgressive; as an expression of cheating,” says Esther Perel, a therapist and author of “Mating in Captivity.” “But it can be many other things.” Both Perel and Braverman told The Huffington Post that in their clinical experience, most people sending explicit, flirtatious text messages are doing so sans nude photos.And using words (and images) can be a very powerful medium for building intimacy.The survey, which interviewed 2,252 adults by phone in May 2010, found that 6 percent of adults admitted to sending these type of explicit messages, but 15 percent said they had received them.
People love to blame Tinder for hookup culture, but Becky joined because she was looking for the opposite.The ease with which one can communicate through a smartphone means that some missteps will likely occur."It can be extremely negative," says relationship coach Carol Allen.The survey looked specifically at "sexually suggestive nude or nearly nude images" sent via text message.The resulting statistics -- although limited since they only refer to sexts containing photos -- give us a good jumping off point with which to understand how many adults are taking part in this sort of behavior.
"If you had a few too many [drinks] out with friends, you didn't used to have a way to totally embarrass yourself and ruin your life." Now it seems that for some people the Millennial equivalent of "don't drink and drive" has become "don't drink and text." This ease of smartphones can also create a false sense of intimacy for the parties involved, regardless of whether alcohol enters the picture. It feels like it’s just you and your phone.” And although a sext may seem private, it’s just as easy to forward a sext as it is to send.
