Sexting and flirting are really hard, and sexting and flirting with emoji, the language of the Millennial generation, can be even trickier. Oftentimes, when we think of sexting with emoji, our minds immediately go to the eggplant emoji because of its imposing, phallic nature. But, contrary to popular belief, there are more ways to sext your bae than just sending over the eggplant emoji with a question mark — because, you know, not all of us want or need "eggplants" in our sexual encounters, if you know what I mean.
Some of my favorite previous emoji sexting advice has included a combination with the kissy face, wine glass, saxophone, and sunset for a romantic kind of sext and the eyeballs emoji paired with the bikini emoji to imply a more playfully sexy kind of sext. Of course, sexting has the potential to get really dirty (which is, quite frankly, how I prefer it), but sexting with emojis can also be more benign and represent things like foreplay, second base or third base, or even just kissing.
In case you're sick of the eggplant emoji and don't want to keep things benign, here are 10 different sex positions or acts you can ask for with emoji. Who knew you could sext with these otherwise unassuming images?
This emoji can also be used for the sext "Lets have the kind of lesbian sex that some queer women do certainly have but is mostly intended to appeal to the straight, male gaze!!"
2. A Blowjob
Unless the penis or penis-shaped toy you're putting in your mouth is not cylindrical, this is generally a pretty accurate blow-job face.
"Please lick my lips."
4. Some Light Fingering
For those who prefer one finger.
5. Some Heavy-Duty Fingering
For those who prefer two or more fingers. The more the merrier, I say.
6. Some Handjob Action
To completion, of course.
7. Anal Action
But there don't always need to be "bananas" involved!
8. A Request for Lingerie
I have a bit of a lingerie fetish, so I've definitely requested my ladies to throw some on and come over.
9. "Draw me like one of your French girls"
Because who doesn't want to relive Titanic? Except for the part where Jack and countless other people die, obviously.
10. "Are you a candle? Because I'm going to blow you"
Maybe I'm pushing it here...
