One Good Thing About Sexting.
Sexting has been constantly given pretty bad knocks for being an accomplice to adultery and responsible for the breakup of many relationships in recent times. But can something good come out of sexting? Can sexting also be a tool to building sexual intimacy between couples?
Technology such as mobile phones and internet has made many couples grow apart, but for some couples it has become a powerful way to enhance their relationship and make them get closer. It all depends on how you choose to use it.
In the increasingly fast paced world we live in, couples spend so much time apart, working, travelling, and pursing other interests that if care isn’t taken they may begin to grow apart. When the relationship starts losing its steam, people are tempted to start seeking excitement outside their relationship, instead of looking for new ways to jumpstart the excitement within the relationship.
Sexting is a playful way of staying connected, a foreplay of sorts that make couples look forward to having a good time together. This could be sending romantic texts, having phone sex, exchanging flirty emails, and playing on Skype.
Dr Golland who talks to couples in resolving marital crisis said, ‘I realized that what many of the couples miss is the “flirting” and “playful” experience sexual intimacy used to provide in their lives. I discuss ways to build a warm, connected anticipation for sex in fun and creative ways. Our sexual appetites evolve and change as we age, just as other parts of ourselves do. Feeling sexually desired by our partner is very important, and wanting our husband sexually can’t be underestimated’
She said when she tell couples to start sexting they often laugh at first, but after doing it they usually had a sexual encounter, which of course was the goal!
If you have never done it before, it’s worth a try. From a simple flirty message to an erotic one that would make your spouse tingle. Start sexting with your spouse and see what happens.
