It was a notification from Snapchat, alerting her that she had received a snap. It was an image from her ex-boyfriend, his abs plastered on her phone's screen. The caption: "Want to play? Robin attempted to explain to her boyfriend that she had no idea why her ex would send her such an explicit photo on Snapchat. But as she later confided to Micthat was a massive lie. Robin and her ex-boyfriend had been exchanging steamy snaps for the past four months, after they broke up over a career move that placed him in a different city. Although Robin suspected she might one day get caught, "there always seemed [to be a level of] deniability," she told Mic.
But even though Robin's boyfriend wasn't happy, she didn't feel like what she was doing counted as cheating — and even if it was, she reasoned, there wouldn't be any evidence of it. Because Snapchat is an ephemeral messaging app, pictures can be sent back and forth snapchat cybersex partners with a timer set, eventually theoretically fading into the ether after an allotted time frame. The app provides people like Robin with the ideal platform to engage in digital flirtation. After all, "we aren't having actual sex. Sexting without strings: With nearly million monthly active usersSnapchat is clearly not exclusively used by women like Robin looking to receive some nude selfies on the side.
Yet because Snapchat is an ephemeral messaging app, it's the perfect vehicle for people who want to derive sexual satisfaction outside their own relationships without getting caught. Another benefit to using Snapchat stems from the allure of "secret" communication with people your partner is not aware of. While social media apps like Instagram and Facebook rely on public interaction, Snapchat operates solely behind snapchat cybersex curtain. For people who use it as a way to get off with other people, they equate it to looking at porn to masturbate.
They're looking, but not touching, and therefore they deem it acceptable. In fact, according to a study published in the journal Cyberpsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking found that while more people snapchat cybersex social networks like Facebook for innocuous reasons like keeping in touch with friends, Snapchat was more often used for flirting and meeting new partners, which often prompted jealousy in romantic relationships. On Reddit, there are numerous thre by users who have recently discovered their partners are talking to former flames or sending sexy pictures via Snapchat. Posters come to Reddit asking if they're paranoid, or if they're losing their minds.
The element of secrecy provided by Snapchat allows their imaginations to run wild. Am I paranoid? Is it cheating, or is it something else? Yet Snapchat is somewhat unique in its ephemerality, as well as the fact that it provides an instant, customizable masturbatory experience for users.
Most of the people Mic spoke with said they sent Snapchat nudes for the same reason they enjoyed watching amateur porn on XTube: because they enjoyed the sense of power and agency from asking for and receiving specific types of NSFW content in real time.
The fact that snapchat cybersex with someone on Snapchat allows you to customize your content is an added bonus. A computer programmer living in Hollywood, Aaron has been sending and receiving risque snaps since the app first came out inregardless of whether or not he's been in a relationship at the time. His sexting partners are primarily mutual friends he's messaged on Facebook and people he used to attend college with.
He said he continued to send snaps to strangers when he started dating his current girlfriend because he is able to compartmentalize his relationship and rubbing one out with an old classmate on Snapchat. You want to see a girl's breasts from a certain angle, so you ask," he told Mic. To me that's hot. Ethan, a year-old gay man living in Hollywood, echoed this sentiment.
I'm getting to see someone get off in real time with me," he told Mic. For both of these men, amateur porn doesn't have the same voyeuristic draw that Snapchat offers them. A harmless form of validation: Although both Ethan and Aaron snapchat cybersex in committed relationships, they don't see an issue with sending photos back and forth to other people. To them, sending nudes on Snapchat is harmless, a way to remind themselves that they're still attractive to other people.
Robin said that when her boyfriend caught her sexting her ex, she explained that he continued snapchat cybersex send her photos because he felt insecure about his body. She told Mic that she sends them back because "sometimes I like to be reminded that he still finds me sexy. But while they might tell themselves it's not a big deal to snap the occasional topless photo to an ex, to a degree, people who use Snapchat in a relationship know that they're crossing the line — which is why they don't tell their partners about it in the first place.
I don't know," Robin told Mic. Aaron agreed, saying that he doesn't consider what he was doing on Snapchat a form of "cheating" — even though he acknowledged he would definitely be in a bad position if his ificant other found out. I could be doing worse. Ethan agreed, saying that Snapchat provided a sexual outlet that helps him stay physically faithful to his partner. The true cost of cheating: For anyone with a wandering eye, or a penchant for flirtation, Snapchat seems like a harmless way to explore.
But like anyone who is flirting with unfaithfulness, Aaron and the rest are adept at rationalizing it. That means that you're doing something that is damaging the trust in the relationship. While that might be true, all of the people Mic spoke with affirmed that they had no plans to actually meet the individuals they were sexting. For them, the appeal was purely carnal, totally separate from their actual, IRL sex lives.
They were able to justify sending sexy pictures to their sexy friends without feeling like they were crossing any boundaries. Like any discourse on infidelity, whether or not sexting on Snapchat counts as cheating is not cut and dry: While some might consider it the ultimate form of betrayal, other partners might not be bothered by it at all. The answer to that question largely varies depending on the couple. That said, it is important to remember that unlike the second photos people send back and forth snapchat cybersex each other, the fallout from a hastily sent snap can potentially last for much longer.
