Before we even dive into the subject, let's set one thing straight right away. When it comes to sexting—or any sexual act, for that matter—consent is key. Before you even think about sending a dick pic, make sure that the recipient is well aware of your intentions, and is complicit! Now that that's cleared up...

If you've never sexted before and aren't sure how to get started, don't worry. There are no rules when it comes to sexting. The most important thing is to be yourself. It can be funny, romantic, detailed, a bit naughty. At worst, it doesn't work and you'll have a good story to tell.

Sexting can be an excellent way to rekindle the flame in a relationship, to keep a long-distance relationship going, or it can be a very good way to get to know your partner. You can find out what the person likes and dislikes and confide in them about your preferences. And we guarantee you'll get a rush every time you see their name on your phone.

How to sext?

First of all, you shouldn't say something bold out of the blue, especially if you don't know the person you're talking to. If you say something dirty just after a ‘hello,’ the person you’re talking to probably won’t be into it. The best thing is to take the temperature and start slow.

I want to be close to you.
I can't wait to hold you in my arms.

It's a slow start and if the recipient isn't receptive, you'll know right away, or if not, just ask if the person is open to this kind of exchange. Remember, consent is key!

If you ever start sending messages with more details, make sure you trust the person you are sending them to. This will make you feel more comfortable and you never know where your messages might end up. You can also set rules with the other person and decide that you will delete the messages afterwards. Finally, as for the content, let yourself be carried away by the mood of the moment. Descriptions, suggestions, fantasies... let yourself go!

Gifs and emojis to spice up the conversation

If you ever want to add a little something extra, we recommend emojis. And don't just stick to the eggplant and peach, you can do better. And don't forget the unsuspected power of gifs. Sometimes that's all it takes to set the world on fire.

Sexting is a game of seduction like any other. Just be yourself and let your imagination run wild. Always with respect for the other person of course, otherwise it won’t work!
