Sexting has been promoted further by several direct messaging applications that are available on smartphones.
Among the most popular applications for this use in 2015 were Kik, Snapchat, and Whats App.
Whether sexting is seen as a positive or negative experience typically rests on the basis of whether or not consent was given to share the images.
Now, throughout history, men practically had a license to cheat with little consequence, and supported by a host of biological and evolutionary theories that justified their need to roam, so the double standard is as old as adultery itself.Young adults use the medium of the text message much more than any other new media to transmit messages of a sexual nature.As a result of sexting being a relatively recent practice, ethics are still being established by both those who engage in it and those who create legislation based on this concept. Is it a hookup, a love story, paid sex, a chat room, a massage with a happy ending? And when we say "infidelity," what exactly do we mean?
