“Its generally a good rule of thumb to not sext anyone you havent sexed in real life first.“
You’re always taking a bit of a risk when you send a sext. Now that your statement of sexual intent is out there, it has the potential to blow up in your face. Just ask Brett Favre. Only a few months ago, Favre was accused of sexually harassing at least three employees of the New York Jets, including Jenn Sterger, a Jets sideline reporter. The drama is ongoing. But lawsuits and marital infidelity aside, the aspect of this story getting the most attention is that Favre allegedly sent pictures of his penis to Sterger. Of course, these photos have been leaked to the public along with some pretty pathetic voice mail messages from Favre to Sterger.
Men everywhere can learn from Favre’s misfortunes in this situation. Before you decide to photograph your member and sext it to a girl you’re pursuing, find out what she will think about receiving it. To find out how to avoid your own sexting scandal, AskMen has a breakdown of sexting etiquette for you.
Don’t sext what you wouldn’t say
The ability to text has made us all a little bolder when it comes to our communications, but if you wouldn’t say something out loud to someone, you probably shouldn’t text it. The extra anonymity provided by texting and online interaction makes it more tempting to let loose with your dirtiest talk, but use a little discretion. Remember, a text message or an e-mail leaves a technological footprint that could come back to haunt you. Sometimes, even things you would say in the heat of the moment in bed should never be put in writing. When in doubt, do not sext.
No unsolicited sexting
Just as you would assess a woman’s openness to flirting in person, you should also determine whether or not she’s into receiving your texts on her phone before you pour it on. The fact that she gave you her number is not an invitation to start sexting away at the first opportunity. Start off by flirting casually to see if she responds, then let it build up gradually from there. It’s generally a good rule of thumb to not sext anyone you haven’t sexed in real life first. You would be pretty safe in assuming that she won’t mind getting a steamy text from you when you’ve already gotten busy between the sheets.
