It is honest to express that sexting has consistently had a tiny bad rep. In 2012, an academic study concluded that sexting amongst youths was part of several high-risk sexual behaviors, including unprotected sex.
Another study in 2014 followed this, in the Journal of Adolescent Health, that disclosed sharing of sexual images was associated with multiple sexual partners – and drug taking.
Now – thank god – it’s the turn of the sex positive academics using a new study from the US entitled Reframing Sexting as a Positive Relationship Conduct, which concluded that sexting is ‘great for sexual satisfaction.’
Conducted by the Drexel University’s doctoral student Professor and Emily Stasko Pamela Geller (who runs the Women’s Health Psychology Lab) the study surveyed 870 US nationals aged between 18 -82 on the prevalence and their approaches towards it.
