How To Sext: Tips For Sexting

Anyone can be good at sexting. With some basic education around sexting etiquette (and a little dash of confidence), you'll be ready to hit send on the spiciest of texts in no time.

1. Ask your partner what they're comfortable with

Above all, before sexting, make sure to ask your partner for consent. Consent is always key. You can do this by simply asking something like: "How do you feel about sexting?" or "Is it okay if I send you something dirty?"

2. Build up your partner's anticipation throughout the day

If you know that sending a sweet sext (or an even dirtier one) is something that excites your partner, it can build up your courage and confidence to send it. "Just like the physical act of sexuality, the build-up is where the fun is," Eros reminds us. "Little comments or texts throughout the day can really build up the excitement leading to the physical touch."

3. Communicate something you love about your partner

Sometimes, the best way to confidently sext is to go back to the basics of what you love sexually about your partner. If you love how their skin feels or you enjoy the way they sound in bed, that will help you with things to say while sexting.

4. Be descriptive

Paint a picture for your lover. "It's all about telling your partner how much of a turn-on it is for you to know that you are turning them on," Eros says. "The best way to show this is not by just saying what you want or plan to do or how you feel, but the 'why' behind it. Getting to the 'why' really helps add so much more sexual detail."

5. Don't take yourself too seriously

Whether you're new to sexting ideas or an old pro at sending hot messages, it's always best to not take yourself too seriously. Use sexting as a time to have fun, turn you and your partner on and enjoy the moment. If you say something embarrassing or funny, it's okay. After all, it's just a sext—it should be fun!
