Why You Should Definitely Not Send Naked Pics to Your Boyfriend

Because it's always better to be safe than sorry and naked on the internet.

Let me start by saying I completely understand, sexting is a way to keep your relationship exciting and steamy and sometimes you just can't help yourself. However, there is a big difference between sending a dirty text and sending a naked selfie and in the end, the naked selfie is going to end up causing you a lot more stress and trouble than a sexy text. Even if you're sure your current beau is "the one" and would never use these pictures against you, you can never be sure! 

Once you click send, your nudie is out in the Universe forever

Whether sent by text, app or email, pictures like this tend to come back to haunt you. There is no "I take back my bad decision" button on your phone, although now that I think about it, that's definitely a million dollar idea.

You current boyfriend may not turn out to be your future husband

And now they have naked pictures of you and usually with a breakup involved, those pictures can (and will) be used against you. 

Naked pictures are never, ever "for your eyes only"

Regardless of what he says or what you think, your guy's friends will see these pictures. Even the nicest, sweetest boyfriends are damn proud of a girl who is willing to send him a nudie and will just as proudly show them off to anyone who wants to look. And don't even get me started on what happens if and when you guys break up (please see above).

People don't tend to look at just the one picture they're being shown

People usually swipe through a bunch of pictures, regardless of the phone owner's intent. "Ooh your puppy is so cute, I wanna see more..." Your nudie is one right swipe away from being seen by your boyfriend's mom, just sayin'.

There is always a chance, however small, that your dad will find out

If it can happen to JLaw, an Oscar-winning actress and America's Sweetheart, it can happen to regular, old you. 

Last but not least, have you seen the movie Sex Tape

"Nobody understands the cloud!" Once your nudie goes up into the all powerful cloud, it will be visible from every device, you have ever owned, forever. According to the movie, your only recourse is to go collect all your old devices from family, friends, your friend's kids, exes, pawn shops... Good luck with that!

Take the advice! Trust me, it's always better to be safe than to be naked on the internet.
