Sexting: It isn't sex, but it's the next best thing.
If you’ve never done it before, then initiating a sexting conversation can feel like an art form. But while there’s no one way to transition from a convo about the weather to one about your kinks, there are some sexting convo starters you can use to kick things off. The intensity of the sext all depends on how well you know the recipient and whether they’re likely to be game, but with these sexy openers, you can test the waters.
As Dr. Michelle Drouin, a relationship expert and psychology professor, previously told Elite Daily, your brain reacts to sexts the same way it does to porn. “Some liken or say sexting is the ‘new first base,'" she said. "So people who are in uncommitted sexual relationships — who are just discovering each other — might use sexting as a way to express their passion, express lust, to spur sexual interaction.” Whether you’re dating, have previously hooked up, or are hoping to hook up with the person on the receiving end of your text, a good sexting conversation starter is sure to push the passion to the next level.
Not sure how to start sexting someone? No matter your relationship with the recipient, these sexy text ideas can help get you started.
Remember, the best sexts are the ones that feel authentic to the person writing them, so do what feels right for you (and whatever gets both you and your boo fired up).
