These survey findings are preliminary, and come with big caveats, Stasko says.
The findings may not be representative: Participants were recruited online and responded to a posting asking them to take a survey about sexting, so the sample could be skewed toward more seasoned sexters.
One of the things committed couples struggle with is how to fit sex in to their busy lives.
"There seems to be a missing discourse about pleasure," Stasko said.
If you often feel awkward AF trying to flirt (WTF does that word even mean, really?
), just remember that the straightforward mainstays of eye contact, volleying genuine conversation, and smiling can usually do the trick.
More than half of the responses came from women; the average age of participants was 35, according to the study authors.
On one level, it's not surprising that sexting is becoming more mainstream."If we look at how technology has been integrated into our society — it's so much part of our daily lives — it makes sense that it would become part of our dating and sexual lives as well," said Emily Stasko, MPH, a doctoral candidate in psychology at Drexel University in Philadelphia and the survey's co-author, along with Pamela Geller, Ph D, associate professor of psychology, ob/gyn and public health at Drexel. The survey found that people who sexted more rated it as more "carefree and fun" and had higher beliefs that sexting was expected in their relationships.(Sexting, for the purposes of the survey, was defined broadly as sending or receiving sexually suggestive or explicit content via text message, mainly using a mobile device, Stasko said.)Of course, this doesn't mean that every grownup out there is under the covers with their phone at night shooting off racy texts.
Also, nearly 75 percent said they sexted in the context of a committed relationship, while 43 percent said they sexted as part of a casual relationship.
