‘Women sext more than men’

London: Women are more likely to send nude photographs or sexually explicit text messages than men, a new study has revealed.

In fact, two-thirds of the women surveyed in the study, ``Let My Fingers Do the Talking: Sexting and Infidelity in Cyberspace,`` said that they sexted while only half of the men did.

The respondents were gathered from AshleyMadison.com - the ``most recognized name in infidelity.``

“Cheating is alive and well, and sexting is on the rise,” the Daily Mail quoted Diane Wysocki, who wrote the study with Cheryl D. Childers, as telling the New York Times.

One possible explanation of why women sext more is it allows the flirtation without the guilt or actually crossing a line.

For bored women, sexting provides an interesting diversion, a distraction from the mundane. An affair - that next step - might not be necessary.

The sexting study, however, is - without a doubt - flawed.
The selection was biased: likely to be less inhibited, ``richer and wrinklier`` than the general population, said Chris Matyszczyk who analysed the study.
