Do you send it without even thinking twice, or do you hesitate a bit? A lot of girls are faced with that decision, and they don’t always give it the thought it truly deserves. Don’t get us wrong. Sexting can be fun — as long as you’re smart about it. But sometimes the excitement of a new relationship and a person that we can’t stop thinking about gets the better of us, and causes us to do reckless things.
We want to know what you girls think about sending sexy texts and naked pictures to your sweetie. Read some of our readers’ opinions and then tell us how you feel.
leylaxx said: Technology is easily corrupted and not everything you send via text or email or Skype is secure. More likely than not, if anything causes you issues it will be technology. So, answer this — is it really worth it on your behalf for a small, grainy picture of your boobs to go through all this stress and anxiety?
hero_of_the_day replied, saying: I agree with you. Sending nudes is a risk, whether it’s to your husband of 10 years or the guy you met at the bar. Just like having sex is a risk (for pregnancy), even if you use condoms. Pics can get out by accident, even if you trust the guy. All it takes is a dropped phone or stolen computer or e-mail sent to the wrong person.
hem replied, saying: i give my boyfriend naked pics. he lives 200 miles away, i don’t see him very often, and i trust him completely. it doesn’t have to be drama as long as you’re not sending them to an a-hole.
These ladies definitely have a point. While sending naked pictures can form a bond between you and your sweetie, there are serious risks that accompany it. Hacking happens! Just have a chat with Miley Cyrus, Vanessa Hudgens, and Scarlett Johannson.
Ask yourself this: would you be able to deal with the consequences if that photo of you ever got out? If you think it could potentially ruin your life if your friends, family and strangers saw you in a sexually compromising position, don’t do it.
That doesn’t mean that you can’t flirt with your hun via technology though. (We’re not against all flirty fun! Sheesh!) What we’re saying is that sexy doesn’t have to mean naked. Go ahead and flirt with your sweetie on text or Skype. Tell him just how excited you are to see him next or send her a picture of your dream date with a “wish we could do this together” message. Just use your best judgement. Smart sexting = happy sexting.
Who do you agree with? Do you think it’s no big deal to send naked pictures to your sweetie, or is it something you would never do? Tell us in the comments.
