Sexting: A Study Says It’s Great for Your Relationship

By  | 

Whenever a man has attempted to sext with me, I have felt disgusted. Perhaps it’s because I was just dating most of these guys. Some would even try to sext pre-date. If you want me to get freaky with emojis, you better wine and dine me first!

So, sexting gets a bad rap. Blame the guys online who start up a dialogue with, “Let me get a sexy pic.” Wait for it, buddy. However, if you sext when in a committed relationship, well, it does your love good.

A recent study discovered that sexting can help your relationship and sex life. 870 adults between the ages of 18 and 82 were surveyed and 88 percent of respondents said that they have sexted. Out of those 88 percent, 75 percent sexted their significant other and felt high levels of sexual satisfaction. They were also happier in their relationships overall.

Researchers really don’t know why sexting improves relationships but I can only assume that when we sext our significant other they feel desired. Sexting someone is sort of like saying, ” I was thinking of you naked at this moment,” and who doesn’t want to hear that in the middle of the day? Plus, sexting can also freshen up your sex life.
