There is nothing wrong with Sexting. Just don’t be a di*k about it.
Love notes and love letters are the things of the past. These days sexting is the new way of showing affection which comes with a higher risk that might add some thrill into your love life.
There is no denying sexting is exhilarating- it’s convenient, builds excitement and lets you tap into your fantasies with the touch of a button.
But the age of Sex and sexting has been made possible with the advent of technology which repeatedly gets hacked, often turning these private snapshots into public scandals. So how do you participate in what is rapidly becoming an expected part of romantic communication while keeping your privates private?
DKODING gives you some helpful tips and tricks to efficient sexting for spicing your life with caution.
1. Don’t push it
Go with your gut. If your lover or partner (Or one night stand. We don’t judge) is forcing you to send sexually explicit images, videos or anything that turns your stomach upside down in a non-appealing way, then you better not do it. Trust us, sexting should be making you happy, giddy and blush like a beetroot. But if most of the time you are worried about the consequences, then you are not doing it right.
2. Try not including your face
We get your love is deeper than oil wells of the Middle East but you wouldn’t want your racy photos getting viral on the internet either. So no matter how much you love a partner and want to make him/her happy, frame your face in a way that nobody can identify you from it. You can jazz up the romance by draping an arm across the breasts, a topless photo from behind, a side shot, a towel or sheet held in front of your treasure trove.
3. Use apps if you are serious
If the horny minx in you just wanna let go and give it all to your partner then try using phone applications which don’t allow taking screenshots and delete the data as soon as they are seen. ‘Privates’, ‘signal’ and ‘bleep’ are a few of the suggestion we would recommend you to try.
4. Shower them with raw emotions
You don’t need to be Shakespeare while sexting. Wisdom for dirty talk is to keep it as straightforward as you can while maintaining the erotic theme. Tell them what you’re doing, what you’re going to do to them, and what you did. The formula works for pretty much in any sexing situation.
5. Don’t give surprises and do plan it ahead.
Imagine being in a meeting and opening a text message to see a nicely angled dick pic. Or having your phone unlocked and having your friends see your lover’s foxy images over your shoulder. That’s not fun for anyone. Make sure the person you are sending your pics to have gotten a heads up and do the needful (Like putting a phone lock) to avoid anyone else relishing in your romance.
6. Save them properly in your phone
People are born with this bad habit of swiping on photos when you give your phone to them to show them just one. Yes, and you don’t want your mother to swipe on a raunchy picture of your girl eating strawberries. Right!!! So keep your photos in hidden mode or try using apps for this as well. Yay technology.
7. Delete EXIF data from photos
EXIF data embedded in your images can reveal personal data about you. Including your location (Chills). You don’t want a one night stand or a buddy with benefits showing up on your door after a saucy image of yours driving them mad. (Stalker alert) But worry not, it’s fairly easy to remove EXIF data and there are various apps that you can use to do the needful.
8. Don’t rush it if you can’t trust it
It’s easy to go with “Trust me, I won’t show it to anyone” and constant pegging. But unfortunately, the person you trust today can betray you tomorrow. So to be on the better side you must think twice about the recipient of your virtual love.
You must remember there’s never going to be such thing as 100 percent secure sexting, but by following some of the tips listed above, you will help mitigate many of the risks and spice the equation without being too anxious.
