The following material contains mature subject matter. Viewer discretion is advised.
The Doctors discuss a new study from the Univerity of Alberta that looked at 615 adults who are in relationships and asked about how often they sext. They divided the group into 4 categories: non-sexters, word-only sexters, frequent sexters, and hyper-sexters. The study dubbed participants as hyper-sexters if they were sending one or more racy texts per day.
The hyper-sexters group had the highest levels of sexual satisfaction in their relationship, but the study also found that they were more ambivalent about their relationship, less secure in their relationship, less committed and more likely to cheat.
Clinical psychologist Dr. Judy Ho explains that sexting can mimic the way that your brain responds to drugs by spiking your dopamine levels and can lead some to feel encouraged in an additive way.
She explains that she worries how sexting might affect some relationships, adding, "We've got to find other ways to keep our relationships interesting."
The Doctors note that just because you are sexter does not mean you will cheat.
