10 Sexting Fails That Will Make You Realize You're Probably Not So Bad At It After All

How’s your sexting prowess? Does sexy-talk-via-text bring out the animal in you? Or do you often have trouble finding the most tantalizing words and pictures to make sexting work? Does sharing your innermost sensual thoughts with another person thrill you into the wee hours of the morning? Or are your attempts to sext more often cut-off before they even begin?The fact is, some people just don’t know how to sext properly. Most of us could use a refresher on how to sext. That goes for both the sender and the recipient.

Essentially, one person’s goal to titillate can sometimes be intentionally or inadvertently kiboshed by the other. For example, some folks may sext too boldly right from the onset, disgusting the other person instead of having the opposite effect. And then there are those who are completely clueless they’re even in the midst of an attempted sexting conversation (these are the ones who remain oblivious to questions about the color of their panties).

And it doesn’t even matter who we communicate with, because bad sexts can happen with anyone: complete strangers, long-term partners, and friends with benefits. So without further ado, here are 10 of the most hilarious sexting fails we could find online. And when you compare these to your own experiences, you may realize that hey, maybe you're not so bad at this sexting business after all.

1. When one of you is a major over-sharer.

2. When you have emoticon/language barrier issues.

3. When you don't share the same life plans (or taste in opening lines).

4. When one of you is clearly distracted.

5. When you're talking about two completely different things.

6. When "accidents" happen.

7. When one of you would just prefer to be left alone.

8. When the conversation starts going down the toilet.

9. When one of you is too blunt from the get-go.

10. And finally, when you both give up waaaaay too quickly.
