Many people may wonder what it is about sexting that is so arousing when you aren’t physically involved in a sexual act. Millions of people around the world choose to sext partners, rather than meet up to actually have sex because they find chat interactions just as satisfying. In this blog post, we look into the logic behind sexting and why so many people find it arousing.
IT FEELS LIKE A THRILL
There is no denying that there is a certain thrill that comes from sexting another person, this, after all, is the main appeal. Sending and receiving explicit messages helps to make you feel aroused in the same way it would if someone were saying the things to you in real life. In some ways, this is amplified in the sense that you can sext at any time of the day, anywhere in the world. This means you can sext a partner at work, or out shopping, which makes the whole experience feel naughtier and therefore more of a thrill.
It allows you to use your imagination
Sexting involves no physical contact, which means the power of your imagination goes into overdrive. In physical situations, we rely so much on the other person to turn us on and keep us aroused. However, with sexting, it all comes down to you and the explicit stories you create with the other person. This could lead you to discover new fantasies or kinks you didn’t even realise you had. You and the other person may also choose to exchange explicit photos if there is a level of trust built, which only helps to fuel your sexual imagination.
It’s less pressure
Many people feel aroused when sexting because there is less pressure and worry than in a real-life sexual experience. When sending sexual messages, you may feel more confident to be yourself or discuss your desires, without feeling judged. This allows for a better experience overall and may turn you on more in the process.
It can bring partners closer together
It’s not only single people who sext casually to fulfil their desires and sexual needs, it’s extremely common for people in committed relationships as well. Regular sexting can be very arousing and intimate for a couple, and also help them to try out or discuss new desires in a less pressured environment. This sexting can help to improve and spice up their physical sex life, leading to a better and more trusting relationship overall. Those in a relationship may also be more aroused when sexting as they can more vividly picture their partner's body and sexual scenarios with them.
It’s clear that sexting can be arousing and fulfilling, hence why millions across the globe turn to it to meet sexual desires. In the end, it comes down to the freedom and thrill that the methods of sexting provide, which in some cases can match or even exceed sex in real life.
