According to New Research People Who Sext Are More Satisfied With Their Sex Lives
In a new study by Drexel University’s Women’s Health Psychology Lab, they found that not only do most adults sext, but there is also “a robust relationship between sexting and sexual and relationship satisfaction,” according to Emily Stasko, M.S., M.P.H., the coauthor of the study.
The study surveyed 870 participants from ages 18-82, and found that 82 percent of participants had sexted in the past year, 75 percent had sexted in the context of a committed relationship, and 43 percent had sexted as part of a casual relationship. What does that mean? More people are sexting their partners than someone they are casually dating.
The more sexting the participants are doing, the more satisfied they said they were in their sex lives. Maybe the steamy conversations lead to more sex, or at least hotter sex?
Of the participants that were surveyed, only 12.1 percent said they have sexted in a cheating relationship. Where are these sext crazed conversations happening? “Home was the most frequently reported setting for sexting (76.1 percent), but almost 30 percent of participants reported work or ‘out and about.'” Based on the study, it sounds like the couples that were in committed relationships that didn’t live together were the largest group of sexters.
Can’t say we are surprised. Now you know a way to make your night a little steamier.
