Men and women have different reasons for & # 39; sexting & # 39 ;, where women give a large number of driving factors why they choose to send a nude photo, a study has discovered.

Researchers at Arizona State University looked at the dating phenomenon in young people and discovered that women are four times more likely than men to send a nude photo to prevent the recipient from losing interest.

The findings also show that women sometimes find the process both liberating and empowering.

PhD student Morgan Johnstonbaugh asked more than 1,000 students to explain why they sent sexually explicit material through text.

HOW WAS THE STUDY GUIDED?

More than 1,000 students from seven different American universities describe the last time they sent sexually explicit material through text.

The researchers then asked each participant to explain why they shared the photo.

They had 23 possible reasons, participants could check as much or as little as they wanted.

To get these results, the study participants – from seven different American universities – were asked to describe the last time they sent sexually explicit material through text.

Given 23 multiple-choice answers, they were then asked to describe their motivation.

The results suggest that women are four times more likely to & # 39; have sex & # 39; to maintain a monopoly on the interests of the recipient.

She claims that this may be due to a & # 39; persistent double standard & # 39 ;.

However, this statement does not explain why women described the practice both positively and negatively.

& # 39; Women may find sexting really powerful because you can create a space where you feel safe to express your sexuality and explore your body & # 39 ;, she says.

& # 39; The fact that women often feel both empowered and disempowered – that they select both options when they think of the same event – emphasizes the fact that women have more to gain from a potentially beneficial interaction, but they also have more to lose & # 39 ;, says Johnstonbaugh.

Harmless: in a 2012 study of 3,447 men and women aged 18-24, University of Michigan researchers found that half of all young people - both men and women - send explicit and voluntary and mutual messages

Previous studies have shown that the opposite is true.

In a 2012 study of 3,447 men and women aged 18-24, researchers from the University of Michigan found that half of all young people – both men and women – send explicit messages mutually and mutually.

Their behavior was also completely independent of risky sexual behavior. It also had no connection with depression, anxiety or low self-esteem.

That study was conducted by the Sexuality and Health Lab and the Prevention Research Center of Michigan. It was published in the Journal of Adolescent Health.

Johnstonbaugh presented her research at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association in New York City.

IS THE PERSON YOU LIE AT YOU IN THE SEKST?

According to research from the University of Indiana, almost half of all sexts sent between partners are lies.

Researchers discovered that of the 109 students who had sent sexually explicit texts, almost half (48 percent) had told fibes.

Two-thirds said they had lied about things like lying around in lingerie or touching their bodies in a certain way to serve & # 39; their partner & # 39; but a third said they'd done it for entertainment because they & # 39 bored & # 39 ;.

Moreover, lying during sexting was much more common in women than in men, with 45 percent of women and 24 percent of men making up the truth.

Dr. Michelle Drouin, the lead author of the study, compared the act with lying about orgasms during actual sexual intercourse.

Commenting on the gender discrepancy, she added: & # 39; For obvious reasons, women are more likely to fake orgasm than men, but are also more likely to pretend to be enthusiastic .

& # 39; Women lie to serve other people more than men (do). & # 39;

Based on questions about the relationship attitude, people who were more anxious to cheat or who tried to avoid closeness were more likely to have lied in sexts than those who were safer.
