Back up a second, what the hell are dirty snapchats anyway?

We’re sure you all know what Snapchat is by now. But if you’re unfamiliar, we’ll give you the quick lowdown.
Basically, a snap is a picture you send via an app called Snapchat where you can choose the duration in which the other person views the picture. Once the photo has been viewed, they get one reply and it’s gone forever – unless they screenshot it.

Snapchat is generally used to send funny photographs of your dinner or the things you’ve experienced during the day to your friends. It also has some pretty cute filters you can add to your photos and look even better!

But, dirty snaps have become the go-to for sexters the world over. You can send nudes, semi-nudes, or any suggestive snap you want to your beloved and wait for the sparks to fly. And with the right settings, it can vanish from their phone forever.

There’s something super-sexy about giving your lover a sneak peek at what they get to see in person later. It’s great foreplay and can really heighten the anticipation of a fantastic romp in the sheets later. [Read: Sexy and sweet Snapchat ideas you HAVE to try]

1. Be sure your dirty snapchats are going to the right person

It’s possible that you’ve sent a regular snap to the wrong person before. Let’s hope it has never been a dirty snapchat that gets sent to the wrong person!

It goes without saying that you should make sure that you have the correct person selected before hitting that ‘send’ button. You can’t undo sending a snap. Once it’s sent, it’s there for good and the other person WILL see it. [Read: What you need to do when you send a sexy text to the wrong person]

2. Know that they may screenshot your dirty snapchats

Taking a screenshot of a snap is extremely easy for anyone. Although Snapchat does send you a notification if someone does this, you can’t control what they do with that picture once it’s saved to their phone.

So, make sure the other person isn’t the type who will take a screenshot if you’re not comfortable with them keeping it on their phone. Even if they say they’ll only use it for themselves, there’s never a way to know for sure.

It’s probably best to save sending seriously sexy snaps to people you really trust. [Read: 20 sexy text messages to start a naughty conversation]

3. Be wary of any replays they may do

Snapchat has made it possible for a person to have unlimited replays. This means they can reopen as many of your snaps as they want within minutes of looking at them the first time.

So, they could use this to take screenshots, and other times they might be doing this to show their friends who are standing nearby. You really have no way of knowing for sure, so be careful if a person frequently replays them.

4. Make sure you can live with the consequences

Everyone who sends a sexy snapchat should be 100% sure they can handle any consequences that may arise from sending a nude or dirty snap.

They could send the picture out for the world to see, and you have to be sure you can handle living with that. If you can’t, then don’t send them. [Read: How to send sexy nude selfies and not get into trouble]

5. Be wary of the other person’s reputation

Many guys and even girls have a reputation for getting snap sexts sent to them and then showing a lot of people. Everyone knows about it, and yet somehow they’re still sent nudes.

Our point is that you should always be careful of a person’s reputation. Even if nobody has said anything about what they do with dirty snapchats, still be cautious if they have a reputation of being mean to their exes. [Read: How to damage control when your nudes get leaked]

6. It’s best to meet them in person before sending dirty snaps

It’s best not to send a naughty snapchat without the other person having seen you in that same form in person. Why would you send a naked picture when they’ve never seen the real thing?

You also don’t want to give them the impression that you’re easy. Sending really dirty snapchats too early on in a new relationship can give them the idea that you only want something physical. Then, they will respond with wanting the same. You can also work out whether they’re trustworthy if you meet them first. [Read: 18 things you do that’ll make guys think you’re an easy lay]

7. Avoid showing your face

As a precautionary measure, NEVER show your face whenever you send naughty snapchats. Even if you’ve been with them for a couple of months and trust them dearly, you just never know what can happen.

If you never show your face but only send some sexy body parts, they can never use your picture against you since there’s no way to prove that it is you.

For this reason, we also suggest leaving out any tattoos that may indicate that it’s you, if you can. [Read: 6 things to know before you go stripping in front of the webcam]

8. Always choose flattering shots

This is just for your own sake. Pictures seem to resonate in a person’s mind much longer than seeing a glimpse of something unflattering in person.

We suggest sticking to sending pictures that aren’t really close up and detailed, because a zoomed shot of your nipple isn’t going to be cute. But, you want to send something cute, right? [Read: The sexy thirst trap – How to master it without looking slutty]

9. Be careful not to save them to your phone

Snapchat gives you the option of saving pictures to your phone if you choose to. We advise you to be REALLY careful. It’s probably best not to do this.

Whether you hit the save button on purpose or on accident, someone might go through your camera one day and you’ll be embarrassed to see an ass picture just sitting on your phone.

10. Avoid sending dirty snaps when you’re drunk

Drunken snap sexting is a huge mistake no matter who you’re sending it to. There’s an increased risk of sending it to the wrong person, sending an unflattering picture, and not remembering if they take a screenshot or replay it.

Just like you should never drunk text, don’t drunk snap sext either. [Read: Drunk texting – How to avoid the awkward drama of drunk texts]

11. Be mindful of your own insecurities

We know that sending a hot picture of yourself to a potential lover can increase your self-esteem, but it can also have adverse effects on it too.

If you’re someone who suffers from a lot of insecurities, you may want to avoid sending dirty snapchats all together, because doing that could only give you more insecurity.

You’ll sit and wonder if they liked it, if you looked okay, and it’ll ultimately bring you down. It’s supposed to be something fun and something that builds you up. If it’s not for you, that’s fine. [Read: How to take sexy pictures and look great no matter where you are]

12. Make sure you trust the other person fully

Trust is a huge part of sending naughty snap sexts. You have to be able to trust the other person 100% so you know the risks are limited with them.

If you trust them, and you know they’ll never do anything to hurt you with the pictures you’re sending, it can give you a lot more peace of mind and freedom to send some even racier snapchats.
