Sexting can be a great way of staying close to your other half if you find yourselves torn apart by work commitments, a holiday or you just happen to not live together. After all, you can never predict when the urge might creep up (excuse the pun).
But sometimes it can be a rather risky and hazardous pastime. There’s just so much that could go wrong. Get ready to cringe and LOL in equal measure.
1. The Accidental Send
You’ve constructed the perfectly seductive text, complete with metaphors, adjectives and a whole lot of suggestion. You’re getting hot under the collar just reading it back to yourself. You bite your lip. Press send.
Then see that you’ve replied to your Dad’s last message instead of sending it to the object of your affections.
2. Autocorrect Fails
Smartphones seem to have a mind of their own when it comes to spell-checking.
This can turn your perfectly mundane text into a sext with the single swapping of a character (danger words include: duck, tick, loner and sock).
3. Sending A Raunchy Photo To Your Boss By Accident
Not for the faint-hearted, taking saucy snaps can be a dilemma at any time. But always make sure you send them to the right person.
That hasn’t happened to us. Promise.
4. Don’t Drink And Sext
All those kinks and fantasies might just come gushing out.
And you’re also increasing the chances of ALL of the above by approximately 300%.
5. Keep It To Yourself
Don’t, under any circumstances, sext on public transport. You never know who might be looking over your shoulder.
