By Best Life Editors July 18, Whether you're a week, a month, or a decade into a relationship, there are always ways to make things a little bit spicier with you and your partner. Perhaps the easiest way to inject a little heat into your coupling is the quickest, as well: the sext. The art of sexting, while once considered somewhat taboo—or at least something best left to teenagers—is becoming increasingly standard pre-game fare for the majority of adults. In fact, a recent study from Drexel University revealed that, out of adults polled, 80 percent admitted to sexting in the past year. Better yet, sexting may actually be good for you: according to a study published in the journal Computers in Human Behaviorhalf the study's volunteers who regularly sent sexts reported feeling that their sexting yielded positive outcomes, whether emotionally or sexually. However, in a world where virtually every flavor of porn is available at the touch of a button, it's going to take more than a run-of-the-mill message to get your partner or that cute Tinder match eager to race home and ravage you.
According to a survey by MTV-AP , 1 in 3 young people allow engaged in some form of sexting, either sending or receiving nude photos, with another person. The internet is forever and there are real-life consequences for the things you share online. So before you press send, at this juncture are 6 things to consider. Is Your Partner Being Manipulative about it?
