The pandemic has completely flipped our lives upside down, and let’s be real, meeting people frequently during this time, is not something a lot of us are comfortable with. For some of you, intimacy may not be possible in person, if you aren’t already living with your partner. Needless to say, the pandemic has taken a toll on our sex lives. At a time when everything is going digital, this might be the perfect opportunity and time to figure out how to sext. Whether you are in a long distance relationship or are unable to meet your partner, sexting is a great way to keep the spark alive!

You may or may not have resorted to sexting in the past, but for all those who haven’t, fret not! We’ve got you covered. It is an art you learn over time, and once you get comfortable, you’ll realize it’s the most fun and flirty way to keep in touch with your partner until you can meet them in person. Below are a few sexting ideas and tips to keep in mind when you start a sexting sesh with your bae.

Build Up A Mood

Just like you would IRL, build up the mood and anticipation, and begin slowly. Don’t skip the foreplay even while sexting, as it makes things much more interesting. Firstly, it’s important to test the waters and figure out if your partner is also in the mood. Next step would be to gradually ease into the sexting dialogue by recalling a hot moment from the past, or expressing how you wish they were next to you.  

Use Sexy GIFs For Visual Aid

Sending naughty GIFs may just provide enough visual stimulation and add that little extra oomph in your conversation. Not only will they spice up your sexts, but will also convey clearly what you wish to do with your partner if they were with you at that moment. The GIFs can be an addition to what you’ve already written, and will amp up the sexual tension!

Use them wisely though, you don’t want to be sending them continuously in one go, and end up looking disinterested in the conversation. Pro Tip: Always maintain an element of surprise, GIF bombing doesn’t have that same effect if your partner is expecting them. It’s perfect for those who feel like they aren’t great with words.

Play Out Your Fantasy In Detail

Don’t skip out the details, paint a picture for your partner with your words and leave it to their imagination to do the rest. Details hold the key to an immersive sexting experience like no other. If there’s a fantasy you have in mind that you would want to try out with your partner, let them know while sexting. Play it out in detail, but stop at a certain point and invite your partner to add to the script and explore more possibilities as you go.

Take Inspiration From Your Personal Experience

Sexting can be a bit intimidating at first for those who haven’t done this before. You may want to initiate a sexting sesh, but are at a loss of ideas about where to start. To begin with, you can simply draw some inspiration from a memory, and translate that into text. Perhaps mentioning a sexy moment that you really enjoyed when you were with your partner the last time! Begin with that, and then you could maybe transition into what you would like to do the next time you are together.

Know Your Comfort Zones

If you have been dating for a long time, there’s a certain level of comfort between you and your partner. Even so, it’s important to set boundaries, and discuss what you feel comfortable with, and what you don’t. Likewise, it’s also important to know your partner’s boundaries, and have clarity about the same.

ALWAYS Give A Heads Up Before Sending NSFW Content!

Firstly, before you start sexting, make sure your partner is alone, and that there aren’t people around. Even after confirming, just make sure you give your partner a heads up before sending a picture that you don’t accidentally want anyone else seeing. And most importantly, only send NSFW pictures if you feel like, and completely trust your partner.

Now that you are well-versed with these sexting tips, go ahead and try it out! But keep in mind, you don’t have to do anything you or your partner aren’t comfortable with!
