To sext, or not to sext?

opinion

 

 

Nudes have become the cornerstone of modern dating, acting as a means of spicing up existing relationships and a gateway into new ones (read:hookups).

But are they a good idea?

Explicit images do have the potential to leave you vulnerable in cyberspace and are often (problematically) performed to meet certain social expectations. Alternatively nudes can be a means of liberation and empowerment- a way for marginalised groups to reclaim their sexuality.

So is it performance or empowerment? Ian and I found ourselves seriously undressing this question (pun v. much intended).
