Though you may always have your cell phone on you, you may not always be in the mood to swap XXX messages, so whether you're trying to shut it down or turn it up, these witty responses to sexting are sure to make your date happy, horny, or some combination of both.

Perhaps the second-best feeling to an actual orgasm is someone making you laugh so hard you think you're going to pee. If you've been seeing someone for a while or are just hitting it off with a new cutie, having a similar sense of humor can make everything better — especially sex. While direct communication is the name of the good sex game, the truth is, it can be flippin' intimidating to state your needs and desires. Being able to incorporate humor when talking about sex can take the pressure off, allowing you and your date to connect and say what's on your mind. Just like anything sexy IRL, sending a sexy text means getting clear on consent. Nobody wants to receive a line form 50 Shades Of Grey while they're screen-sharing at work or taking a selfie with their aunt at brunch.

If you're hit with an unpromoted sext, here are 50 witty ways to reply.
