Nudes are not an invention of the digital era—any art museum is proof of that. But the Internet sure has encouraged us to take the art of sexting to places our parents could have never imagined. AIM introduced the concept of cyber-flirting. Chatroulette gamified it.
Sending nudes used to be such a taboo thing to do—no one talked about it but everyone did it. Set your own boundaries. Want to send him a photo in your bra only? Partially nude photos can actually be way sexier than baring it all anyway. Try a sexy pose in your underwear only or a really cute bathing suit. Leaving more to the imagination sometimes gets guys more excited than the alternative. Be prepared for other people seeing your goodies.
If you've ever sent or received a sext, you're not alone. That number may even be higher now, as the study came out just as Snapchat, then an ephemeral multimedia messaging platform built around disappearing photos and video, was taking off. This is a judgment-free zone. If you want to send a nude and have a willing participant , then send a nude. Human bodies are beautiful!
