Most People Sext for Non-Sexual Reasons?

Apparently if you sext with someone because you're feeling naughty, you're in the minority.

According to a new study out of Texas Tech University, believe it or not, the majority of people sext for non-sexual reasons.


The researchers found there are three equally-common reasons why people say they sext with their partner:



1.  To get reassurance that their partner is still into them.


2.  As a favour to their partner, knowing that they’ll get a non-sexual favour in return eventually.  For example, they sext and in return, their partner takes them out to dinner.


3.  And finally, one-third of people sext for the traditional sexual reasons.



The researchers also didn’t find any differences between people of different ages, genders, or sexual orientations; those three motivations are equally split across every group.
