Sexting 101

When it comes to “sexting,” there is a fine line between fun and filthy, phone-play and phone porn. Done right, however, sexting between two consenting adults can be great foreplay. A press of a button or a stroke of a touchpad and you get instant sexual tension (which will hopefully lead to other kinds of touching later on).

It “can definitely spice up your sex life,” says “Texpert” Shawn Marie Edginton, author of Read Between the Lines: A Humorous Guide to Texting with Simplicity and Style. “A good sext is worth a thousand words… without all the talking.”

Just use common sense (especially if running for political office) and let the fun begin!

Only sext those with whom you share a committed, trusting, adult relationship.
“Otherwise bad breakups can leave your ‘personals’ exposed for everyone to see on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, etc…,” warns Edginton. “Inappropriate correspondence between the two parties seems to always make its way into the wrong hands.”

In other words, it may seem like harmless fun but do not sext your boss, a one-night stand, a guy with a wife or girlfriend or anyone who isn’t really yours or available to you.
