SEXTING is on the rise and will no doubt get more popular as we start to spend more time physically distancing from each other.
Unfortunately, it comes with the risk of someone leaking your personal texts or images but a new app called e-gree is aiming to protect people from this.
You can download e-gree on Apple and Android phones.
It lets you create a binding contract with someone without a lawyer.
A spokesperson for the company told Sex Tech Guide: “If a party asks a Court to enforce the provisions of the Sexting e-greement, the court will be obligated to look for a number of elements to satisfy itself that a valid and enforceable contract exists.
“Like most well-crafted written contracts, the e-gree Sexting agreement expressly sets forth language to satisfy the offer, acceptance and consideration elements.
“The other elements may require a Court to analyze not just the written contract but also the circumstances surrounding the negotiation, creation and execution of the contact as well as conduct of the parties.”
This means that if you sign this contract with someone and then they leak your nudes or sexts, you could take them to court and use the ‘e-greement’ to help your case against them.
E-gree has said that its contracts are legally enforceable in most parts of the world.
Unfortunately, the app does have some drawbacks.
This includes the fact that under 18s can’t use it even though sexting is prolific amongst teenagers.
Last year, a Kinsey Institute report found that 25% of adults who had received a nude or provocative image had shared it with an average of three other people.
It’s always advisable to be wary of who you are sharing personal photos or information with.
What is sexting?
Here’s some sexting facts…
The word sexting entered the Oxford English Dictionary in 2011 and is a combination of the words “sex” and “texting”.
This can take the form of using sexual language in a message or sending a picture of yourself partially-clothed or totally naked via a mobile phone or another electronic device to someone you are flirting with.
Although the practice can be harmless it can also have negative consequences.
A growing number of Revenge Porn cases stems from the popularity of sexting and has triggered the introduction of new laws to protect people from explicit images being maliciously made public.
Police have also warned children are increasingly engaging in sexting, with a number of disturbing cases requiring officers to speak to under-12s who have shared intimate pictures of themselves.
Sexting has left a number of politicians and celebrities with red faces after details of their messages have been made public.
