Is Sexting Safe?

We've all done it. Or maybe not, but we've probably all been tempted to do it. Sext, that is. Just a bit of harmless fun or something altogether different? Well, according to the latest research, there's a 1-in-4 chance that your sext will end up being seen by someone you never intended should see it!

And it's not just about one-offs with people we hardly know. It seems that even if you are in a relationship, your partner may be just a tempted to share your intimate photos with others. That came a bit of shock to our Leeds Escorts, who assumed that most people sharing sexts would not be in serious relationships.

A study conducted by the Kinsey Institute at Indiana University asked almost 6,000 singletons, between the ages of 21 and 75+ about their sexting habits. Not surprisingly around 75% said that they expected their sexts to remain between them and their significant other. But nearly 23% admitted to sharing sexts with around three friends.

Men were twice as likely as women to share their sexts. Sexting it seems, can have positive and negative outcomes. For some people sexting can increase intimacy with our partner and satisfaction, whilst for others it can lower self-esteem or damage reputations.
