If you sext to someone who is not committed to you, you are risking your privacy and making yourself vulnerable.
In a casual relationship, that person can stop seeing you and forward the text to miscellaneous strangers.
Sexting actually has some amazing benefits for people in ongoing relationships.
If you haven’t made use of it, and you’re in an ongoing relationship with all the strains of how to fit in sex once the thrill of newness has fled, you might want to consider it.
On one level, it's not surprising that sexting is becoming more mainstream."If we look at how technology has been integrated into our society — it's so much part of our daily lives — it makes sense that it would become part of our dating and sexual lives as well," said Emily Stasko, MPH, a doctoral candidate in psychology at Drexel University in Philadelphia and the survey's co-author, along with Pamela Geller, Ph D, associate professor of psychology, ob/gyn and public health at Drexel. The survey found that people who sexted more rated it as more "carefree and fun" and had higher beliefs that sexting was expected in their relationships.(Sexting, for the purposes of the survey, was defined broadly as sending or receiving sexually suggestive or explicit content via text message, mainly using a mobile device, Stasko said.)Of course, this doesn't mean that every grownup out there is under the covers with their phone at night shooting off racy texts.Each Second Life destination has a maturity rating of General, Moderate, or Adult.You can choose to show or hide destinations based on their maturity rating.

Assuming that both people are interested in being sexual (that the sexting won’t be seen as a demand or a guilt trip), a sexy text or a romantic text, is a way to keep sexual thoughts alive.It does not leave Sandra much time to be in her own head or her own body.Sandra and Bill have enough money, but what they don’t have is enough time to connect as a couple. I encouraged her to sext Bill during the day when she was feeling warmly toward him and had some sexual thoughts — especially thoughts about ways she would like to be touched.
