You’ve heard about sexting… but what about senior sexting? It’s not just for the young – seniors are getting in on the trend to spice up their relationships.
Most people don’t associate sexting with seniors, but the truth is that senior sexting is more common than you probably think. No longer is sexting something that only teens and young adults do; instead, single and married seniors regularly send steamy text messages and sexy pics to their significant others.
Spicing Things Up
The great thing about sexting, at any age, is the fact that it’s private, and you can have a bit of fun with your significant other, whether you are newly dating or you have been married for many years and you want to spice things up again. Your smartphone is always with you, after all, so is it any wonder that seniors are taking the opportunity to send sexy text messages to the ones they love?
Remember: your sexual desire doesn’t have to decrease as you get older. Seniors want to remain sexually active, and they still find flirting fun. Sexting is a way to bring out your flirtatious side, while also letting go of your inhibitions. It’s done in secret with someone you can comfortably open up to. And it can help you feel young again as you explore a new way to express yourself sexually.
Busy seniors also consider sexting a great way to keep things hot even when they can’t be with their partners. Couples who spend a lot of time traveling for work, for example, could remain connected no matter where they are in the world. Sexting keeps that flame of desire lit and keeps the excitement going until these couples are reunited and can take what they’ve expressed via text into the bedroom.
Before You Sext…
Although sexting is meant to be a fun way to keep the passion strong in your relationship, there are some things that you should think about before you grab your cell phone and start sending raunchy messages to your partner.
- Always—and we mean always—make sure that you are texting the right person. You can probably imagine how mortified you’d be if you accidentally sent a tantalizing text or revealing pic to the wrong person! So double-check that you’re in the right text thread before clicking “send.” Remember, sexting is supposed to be your little secret.
- Don’t overdo it, especially early on in a new relationship. If you’re dating someone new, you want to get to know them better before you start sexting and potentially sending them the wrong kinds of messages that will turn them off rather than turn them on.
- Something else to think about: not everyone likes sexting or receiving racy photos on their smartphone. For example, they might feel embarrassed by your photo, or they might even be in a public place where others could glance over and see your photo in full display on the screen. Now that’s just embarrassing for everyone involved!
Give It a Try, If You Want
Senior sexting is alive and well, and it’s worth trying if you want to reignite the passion in your marriage or you’re dating and you want to flirt a little throughout the day to build up the excitement. Just be sure to keep it private and respect each other’s boundaries.
