Sexting. Everyone has heard about it, but we must be fair and say not necessarily everyone has done it. Known as a different type of foreplay, sexting has escalated to a whole other level with the rise in technology.

There are many forms of sexting, some forms being way more intense than others. The act of sexting usually either involves the sending of sexually suggestive words or photographs. Sexting is usually done to heighten the sexual tension between two people.

The most important thing about sending a sext, is to remember the rules. Think sexting etiquette; just look at this as a chance to learn the classy way to sext. A couple simple rules will not only keep you out of trouble but will also teach you the ways to successfully sext.

It’s important to trust the person you are sexting. Whether or not you are together as a couple, you need to be sure the personal information shared between the two of you stays between the two of you.

In the sexting world, privacy is the key. If you’re the type of person that doesn’t care if people think you are trashy, then by all means send it to everyone in your phone. Hey, even send it to your mom. On the other hand, if you are trying to adapt a classy way to sext then just remember privacy. A lock on your phone or simply deleting the messages will make all the difference; it’s really not a hard task.

This leads to sexting under the influence. Being under the influence of alcohol and engaging in the act of sexting can be dangerous. If you have learned the hard way, then you are probably used to waking up and wanting to take back everything you did the night before. Just stick with the rule of don’t drink and sext.

Let’s talk about the dreaded “mass sext.” A harmless sext to either your significant other or future significant other shouldn’t be a problem, but under no circumstance should you get caught up in sexting numerous people.

Being careful is the key component when sexting. It can be fun, dangerous and a bit risky but stick to the rules. Sexting can add that extra bit of spice into your relationship, but it can also cause a lot of trouble if done carelessly. So be safe and happy sexting.
