The world of teenage dating is a strange one in this high tech day and age of sex-charged electronic communications. “Digital courtship” is the new way teens are hooking up via smartphone.
The Typical Routine Guys Have To Engage In Virtual Sex With Girls
1. Meet a girl out at a club or bar.
a. Sleep with her that night, or
b. Get her number.
2. “Friends” girl on Facebook; Adds her to his contact list on Snapchat (A great app to send “disposable” erotic pictures for the purpose of virtual sex.
3. Attempt to gain nude pics via social media/texts.
Interesting quotes from real teens about this process:
“I actually don’t try [for actual sex] that much. I try more to get nude pics. I’ll be at home feeling pretty horny and I’ll try to get all the nudes I can while I’m doing it [masturbating],”
“I stop texting [the girl] the second I finish. I know it’s a really dickhead thing to do.”
The trend of sexting (virtual sex via mobile phone with SMS capabilities) has grown significantly in recent years and maybe that’s not such a bad thing. Sexting is safe in a sense that STDs and unplanned pregnancies are prevented. With a plethora of online dating tools (Tindr, Snapchat, etc.) many people end up engaging in sexting before they even knew there existed a term for the practice.
In an era of online dating it is no surprise that teens are the new pioneers in the next way young people are getting it on, even if they don’t physically meet.
