A year into the pandemic, it would be no surprise that if, in addition to being a pro at bingeing the latest show to drop on Netflix and meeting with your therapist via FaceTime, your sexting game is on fire. After all, it's a safe, socially distanced way to connect with someone sexually. There is some anonymity to texting conversations that can allow us to be our bravest selves. Fine points out that sexting also offers ample room to explore your desires. Think you might be into bondage play, but feel a little shy about actually getting out the handcuffs?

Before diving in, be sure you've given some thought to how well you know and can trust your sexting partner.

Voice any concerns. If you have any particular worries or want to point out topics you'd prefer to avoid, you can call those out at this stage as well. Whether you're just getting started sexting with a new partner or a veteran sexter who has been with their S.
Set up a sexy movie date. Before diving into watching something X-rated together, you can fire up Netflix and try something like Elite or the famous train sex scene in Risky Business. Share a favorite erotic story. If you're not prepared to share your own words, you can try someone else's, advises Fine. Ask questions. A combination of vulnerability and curiosity can open up the lines of hot communication.

Familiarize yourself with the language your partner uses to talk about their own body — and share what you like too.
