Nerve Dating poll: How sexy would you let your texts get?

Pin it

You're feeling tipsy. You kind of like that person you've been hanging out with. To sext, or not to sext? That is the question, and it just may be the divisive social issue of our time. Which is why we asked Nerve Dating members: how sexy would you ever let your messages get?

39% of you answered that you'd only go so far as to send something coyly flirtatious. You devil you. "Double entendres are always fun, but getting too explicit is almost always in poor taste," one Nerve Dating member advised. 

32% of you wouldn't even want to imply salaciousness, answering, "Anything you get from me will not be by phone." You have your reasons. "I have a political career to think of," one member commented. Another voter rejected our whole premise, saying simply, "Texting is stupid. What happened to a concise phone call?" (Remember the good old days, when people asked you if you were wearing panties with their actual voices? Manners, people.)

But not all of you were anti-sext. 7% of you said you'd date to send explicit text. "I mean, what are they going to do, go to the police?" one member asked. Not sure that's the point, but hey, this is a free country. And a bold 22% of you were down with sending naked pictures via text. Go forth bravely, sexters. And while you're at it, head to Nerve Dating to meet someone you can send provocative double entendres to.
