There is nothing better than the rush one gets from receiving a text message from your guy of the moment, especially if that text message comes with images for your viewing pleasure. These days we know this form of messaging as ‘sexting’ or a sexy message, but this seemingly spontaneous and playful act provokes a serious issue. Your response!
Since the advent of the camera phone, sending picture messages, including sexy ones, have been a part of our social existence. Sexting is something fun to do with your significant other or it can creep you out, depending on the sender.
There’s always a down side to these things, but the most dangerous of downsides is where these pictures could end up. Your boyfriend most likely will not always be your boyfriend and sending funny and or explicit photos to your friends could be a pitfall as well. Remember, friends come and go.
So, here are the rules for sexting. Rule number one; make sure can you trust this person implicitly. What can clue you in, as to whether or not they can be trusted, you ask? Are they vindictive (when planked by his bros does he feel the need to get back at them two fold)? If yes, think twice about hitting send.
Rule number two; keep it classy. Make it suggestive and not all out there, at least at first. A cute picture message of you with the caption like “can’t wait to see you tonight ” can go a long way.
And rule three; if you want to be a little more provocative, make sure these pictures are not permanent fixtures on his phone’s memory. And doing just that is now easier than ever with the help of technology.
If you are lucky enough to own an iPhone you have the option to utilize the newest and most questionable form of picture taking. The app is called ‘Snapchat’ which it started out innocently enough.
The premise was to send funny pictures to your friends and you can set how long they can see it for. The app is a practical license to snap naughty pictures. The pictures you take through this app can only be seen for a few seconds. And after it is opened the receiver can never see it again and most importantly they cannot save it.
