Smart Phone Sex

People use their smart phones for everything these days. With the plethora of apps, the ability to be online constantly, the access to texting and video chatting gives us all so many options to connect with one another. And that’s especially true when it comes to sex.

Come on…you know most of us have used our phones to either hook up for sex or simply to get off via mobile porn. Gone are the days where you have to sneak into a restroom and use your imagination to get off. With a little dexterity you can use one hand to surf for your mobile porn and one hand to rub one out.

I know there are a lot of wives out there who find their husband’s smart phone a little suspect. At the very least they’ve bumped into a search history with the word “porn” entered into it or even worse, a porn video begins randomly playing while trying to dial their kid’s soccer coach. Oye.  Please use your smart phone for sex wisely people. Close everything out and clear your history and cache. Do I need to say this? Yes, because it happens and especially so if your kids are handling your phone.

Speaking of kids, one British study showed that teens who had constant access to the internet via their phones had more sex, were more likely to have sex with someone they met on online and 17% had been clearly approached for sex through their smart phone. I don’t feel like this is shocking data. More sobering as we know the social landscape has changed a lot since you and I were dating as teenagers. It’s just the way things are now. It is a small word after all thanks to the internet and wanting to hook up.

Smart phones are just another tool to access sex. Sex and technology have always gone hand in hand. As soon as there was photography, people were shooting nude pictures. The second moving pictures made their appearance, erotic films showed up and yes, computers were used early on to transmit and connect people to sexual content. The smart phone is just the next dimension. Sex is a powerful thing and technology will continue to make sure you have access to it whether you are in the comfort of your own home or in the bathroom of a transcontinental flight.
