It's true. Most poeple engage in sexting for non-sexual reasons.
According to studyfinds, "the study conducted at Texas Tech University, two-thirds of people typically “sext” their partners for reasons that are not sexual. The authors identified three, equally common reasons:
- Many use sexting as a type of relationship reassurance that their partner still cares for them.
- Some engage in sexting as a favor to their partner — with the important caveat that the favor will be returned later on in a non-sexual way. For example, a person engages in sexting with their significant other, and in return their partner treats them to a dinner date.
- And of course, other people use sexting for its most obvious purpose; sexual pleasure and as foreplay for actual sex later on.
