I’m sure you’re all familiar with how to sext. You’ve all probably been on both the receiving end of some hot and steamy sexts and you’ve probably sent out dozen of saucy pictures of your private bits to potential hook-ups and even people you’re in a relationship with.
What is sexting?
If you’ve been living under a rock since text messaging started allowing photos to be sent through as well, then it would make a lot of sense that you have no idea what sexting is – I mean there’s not a whole lot of cell service beneath THAT big of a rock, after all.
So for you stone-aged folk, sexting is a term used to describe sending naughty text messages and pictures to someone. It can really be anyone. As long as it’s raunchy, dirty, and relates to sex, then it’s a sext. [Read: 30 hot, sexting examples to start a naughty marathon]
Now take sexting a step further and only send these types of text messages and pictures to your friends and you have what the media and the entire world has begun calling frexting. AKA: friend sexting. Who knows if that word will ever make it into the Oxford Dictionary, but there it is in all its made-up glory.
Why you should be sexting your friends
Why this trend is just making it big now is news to me because I have been frexting my best friend since I discovered that I could, in fact, send pictures to her – and don’t get me started on how snapchat has made this SO much easier.
I know why I’ve been frexting my friends for years now, but do you know why everyone else – and even you – should be? Here are all the reasons sexting friends has become so popular as of late and why you should jump on this bandwagon, too. [Read: 10 naughty texting games to have fun all night long]
#1 It gives you a killer confidence boost. I don’t know about you, but whenever I show up somewhere that my friends are at, they all make me feel like a million bucks with all the compliments they give me. However, friends aren’t always around when I’m looking for a confidence boost.
If you can relate, then you’ll love frexting because it gives you that confidence boost you’re so desperately needing but don’t want to subject yourself to some creepy stalking from that guy you only had 2 horrible dates with. Sexting a friend will get you that confidence boost you need!
#2 You get an unbiased second opinion. Although using the word “unbiased” may be stretching it a bit, frexting your friends is a great way for them to give you honest feedback on a sexy picture of you. They’ll let you know just why it’s great or why it might be a bit much to send it to that Tinder guy you just met.
You can ask them for their opinion on how a bra looks, if the panties you’re wearing are too tight/not flattering, or even if you’re looking toned and fit. This is great before a big night out where you could potentially get laid, or just if you want to send the same photo to a new beau.

#3 You’ll strengthen your friendship. There’s a bond that is forged between friends who sext that just can’t be made through anything else. There’s just something about sending each other half naked pictures that builds upon your relationship in a great way.
#4 You know you’ll get the reaction you deserve. No, getting a reply of “nice ;)” from a guy is NOT the reaction you deserve for sending that amazingly hot and sexy photo that took you hours to get the right angles and lighting.
You deserve a, “Hell yeah, girl! Get it! Ow ow! Looking sexy!” And that’s exactly what you’ll get from a friend versus some guy – even if he is your boyfriend.
#5 It’s safer than sending to someone you just met. You know that your friend isn’t going to save the photo and file it away in some folder labeled “blackmail” for future uses. They’re your friend! They’ll view the sext, send you the reply you’re looking for, and never look at it again.
There’s a pretty good chance that when you send these to a guy, they could show it to their friends, keep it to use if you ever try to leave them, or do who knows what else with it. You’re safer frexting.
#6 It’s fun! Sometimes, I have absolutely no reason to take off my clothes and send a sext to my friend other than the fact that I think it’s fun and it keeps things interesting during an otherwise boring day. So if you’re bored and don’t know what to do, start frexting!
You never know how much fun you can have sending dirty pictures to your friend unless you’ve done it. It’ll make you laugh, feel great about yourself, and you’ll just enjoy it overall. [Read: 20 crucial girl code rules for a less drama-filled life]
#7 There’s no ulterior motives. You’re not trying to get something out of the sext – other than a nice compliment, maybe – and your friend isn’t looking to get laid the second you come over like the effect sexting a significant other could possibly have.
You know that when you send this sext you’re just having fun and there are no strings attached anywhere. It gives you peace of mind knowing that you can guiltlessly be sexting a friend.
#8 You have someone to share your fitness progress with. This one is a lesser-known reason to sext but it’s still a great reason. I recently have taken it upon my petite self to lift weights and grow myself a hot and bodacious booty.
Who better to share my fitness successes with than a close friend? I throw on some lace panties, pop my booty out, and begin frexting. It’ll not only make you feel sexy and good about yourself, but you’ll also be able to track your progress and it’ll keep you motivated.
#9 It gives you a way to show off your new panties even if you’re single. Otherwise, how else would anyone know that you just spent $100 at Victoria’s Secret on the hottest panties you’ve ever owned? I was single for an entire year recently and had a minor panic attack when I realized that no one would see my adorable underwear.
Luckily, I remembered that frexting is a real thing and began showing off my purchases to some friends. They loved getting to see the cute panties and it even made them want to go out and get some for themselves, too. [Read: How to look much better naked using 15 real-life tips]
#10 It improves your sexting game. Practice makes perfect, right? In the realm of sexting, that is most definitely true. You only get to know the best photo angles and lighting that makes you look amazing when you practice them often by frexting.
You’ll also get feedback from your friends on what works and what doesn’t and that can make you an expert in the sexting field when it comes time to actually send a racy photo to someone you’re crushing on.
