You love it when she sends them to you, and it turns out she enjoys it just as much: a new study of 2,000 men and women from 61 per cent of people who send daily sexts report feeling ‘very satisfied’ with their sex life.found
But if every day seems like a lot, there’s good news – 42 per cent of study participants who sent sexts weekly also reported feeling pleased with their sex life.
Even 33 per cent of people who sent sexts only a few times a month reported being satisfied.
What does this tell us? Anything you do to build arousal (even something as simple as sexting her) will get her mind thinking about the real thing. And when she finally gets her hands on you – look out.

“It’s an incredibly sensual process that focuses our minds to optimise our sexual pleasure.”
This isn’t a license for you to go and send naked photos of yourself to unsuspecting girls, however.
Sixty per cent of women said they’d be comfortable sending nudes only to their partner, 40 per cent admitted to having received unwanted sexual pictures, and 7 per cent reported having a nude photo shared online without their consent.
