IS THIS SEXTING?

I sent a little love note text to My Harley Stud today. Short and sweet, I said, “I love you.”blackberry-curve

He didn’t respond until many hours later. I was wrapped up in the pile of crap very important work on my desk and had completely forgotten about the message.

He texted back, “Sorry, I didn’t feel the vibration from your text earlier and just noticed your message. I love you too.”

Awwwwwwww. Yeah, we’re cute, huh?

Being the Smart Mouth that I am, I quickly sent my reply: “ I’ll have to jiggle harder next time.”

This time it didn’t take him so long to come back. “Oh YEAH, baby!”

So, is this the SEXTING I keep hearing about in the news? We just might be cool kids now.

(guffaw) Oh, dear girl, you have set me to giggling in my coffee.

(snicker) You two sound SO much like my hubby and me. It is good to laugh sometimes, isn't it?

(grin)

Tessa said...

Dude! (I think that's what they call each other, these members of the sexting generation.) I bet MHS hates you for posting this!

Smart Mouth Broad said...

BethN-We have a lot of fun. But most would think us terrible bores.

Tessa-Shhh, he doesn't know. *wink*

Pearl said...

Don't make me take those phones away from you two!

Fragrant Liar said...

I think it would be sexting if you accompanied your jiggle remark with a lewd picture. Next time, huh? ;)

Blasé said...

Sounds to me like you need to get busy "jiggling"...

The Blue Ridge Gal said...

Ya most men enjoy the jiggling... HA!

Michel said...

Don't you have to jiggle AND twitter for it to be sexting?

I don't know...

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

OH MY God..I'll probably die without even have done any sexting!! Getting old is hell!!

thistle said...

Well, there is a reason some people keep their phone in their pockets ;)

And awwww....you guys are cute...little hi-tech love notes...definitely cool kids.

And i love that Tessa said 'Dude' LOL...

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

You guys are so cute.

I always wonder when I have my phone in my back pocket and don't feel it vibrate...."OMG, is my ass so big that the nerves don't reach the edge???"

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

I just read your comment on the bridal shower and fell on the floor!! Well..almost..I stopped myself because I knew I would never be able to get up! I swear, you are going to cause this old broad to have a heart attack one of these days! :)

Tony Letts said...

Well yes - we would say we were cool kids - but I have a feeling the kids wouldn't agree!

Reader Wil said...

You always make me smile! I should start reading my comments each morning with yours. It makes my day! Thanks for your visit! BTW I keep the doggie in the header for your sake!!

only a movie said...

Too funny. You are one of the cool kids!!
Pseudo - I love your comment - I have had that thought...
Other half and I send texts too. It's a nice way to stay connected.

Jan said...

Yes, you are definitely the cool kids.

I could blatantly proposition Beloved all day long via text and he wouldn't respond. I don't know if that says more about my powers of seduction or my crappy texting abilities...

thyme said...

My opinion is that the flawless grammar, the complete words and the perfect punctuation of YHS' reply to you are extremely sexy. So yes, I think, you have your answer!

Dee-Zigns Handcrafted Jewelry said...

That is too funny! I've heard about sexting, but haven't seen exactly what is texted, so I have no clue. My oldest is only 11, so I hope I never know :).

Linda said...

Awwwwww! You two are so cute! (and by the answers your getting I'm guessing the ELPH & I are cool too)

Gaston Studio said...

Too sweet! Can't imagine the two of you as boring, no way!

Tricia said...

I think you have to include inappropriate photos of yourself for it to be considered real sexting, but you're well on your way.

midlife slices said...

Get a room, you two!!!! gaw....I'm just sayin.

Stepping Thru said...

I'm scared to "sext" Coach for fear I'll accidentally send it to someone else. I have been known to send a text to the wrong person.

Snowbrush said...

Well....I just don't know about all these newfangled things.

Debbie said...

Well...I looked it up on Wikepedia! So here is what it says.... Sexting...is the act of sending sexually explicit messages or photos electronically, primarily between cell phones. So...I guess not.:) You have to take off your clothes next time and be a little more explicit. You guys are too cute! God! I hope my kids don't do this! I do have a great story about a nephew doing it that I will share with you sometime! You two sound like teenagers still with each other...good for you. My hubby and I haven't grown up yet...we do a lot of crazy things and I think it's great!

delaney55 said...

Ain't love grand? It's good when couples can have a good laugh together, keeps us young.

Wunderwoman said...

Bigblock won't text, his loss right?

Oz Girl said...

Since my hubby and I have just been married a year, I have to be careful with the "sexting" or he'll think it means more than it really means, if you know what I mean. LOL. I just don't want to get his expectations up too high, too often... ;-) But your post did give me a laugh!

Do parents realize that sexting can be the next step toward having sex? Both of my daughters received naked pics from boyfriends as a way of testing them to get a reaction. If they sent one back of themselves, sex was closer at hand. If they reject it, the boys seemed to move on. Sexting can be innocent, yes, but it is also what predators do to test for future advancement of grooming the next victim. Teens say that it's innocent fun, okay, but the one sending it ALWAYS has ulterior motives, and sex is at the top of the list (or why send it naked)!!!

Teens are pulling quite the con to get parents to think it's just a hobby or fad, try convincing a prosecutor of that. Sending teen porn is illegal and they should get a record for doing it (unless stealing, robbing banks, and shoplifting is now legal for teens). Would you allow another teen to keep waving a bottle full of wine at your teen and expect it NOT to go to the next level sooner or later; drinking it.

Parents and prosecutors must realize that sexting is sending porn and illegal at the state and federal level, and must be enforced - or the rapes, molestings, and bad happenings are going to multiply so fast that they won't have enough counselors and jails for it all.

Both of my daughters are in their 20's now, and say they have been trading naked pics for ten years on camera phones, laughing at adults (and me) that parents are so naive. Plus, it does no good to check your child's phone, as files can now be encrypted so that you never find them, let alone get them open!

SEXTING IS A CRIME AND GROOMING FOR PREDATORS, and if you don't think that that lovable boyfriend is not looking for sex - I got a bridge to sell you! There are ten of thousands of men and women in prisons in the U.S. for making porn, what makes a teen think they can make it legally? There are hundreds of thousands of men and women in U.S. prisons for sending and/or receiving teen porn. Why should teens be able to send it with impunity?! It should be legal for all - or illegal for all. PERIOD!



SEXTING: BIGGEST CON JOB EVER PULLED ON AMERICAN ADULTS.
We are not talking about sending dirty messages, (that is true sexting), we are talking about sending naked pictures of teens - PORNOGRAPHY. Hundreds of thousands of adults are in prisons for doing exactly that, so welcome aboard teens! Teens cannot act dumb and say they didn't know. Most teens are smarter technically than adults in this area. They have been sending porn for as long as cameras have been in cell phones, 10 years. Society cannot throw away an adult for innocently looking at porn on their home computer screen, then say 'silly teen' to a minor and let them go free for exactly the same act on a cell phone. Many of the naked teen pictures that adults are going to prison for now where created by willing teens sending them! They get caught…and suddenly it’s called sexting.

Very few adults that look at porn at home go out and commit a crime, in fact, it's more likely that a teen looking at a naked picture on a cell phone or home computer will commit a sex crime because they do not have the restraints that an adult does (hopefully).

Teens have been doing this for ten years (at least), and sending them to all U.S. states and around the world - catch on, they are breaking the law, no excuses, or make it legal for all to do. And what if a child in another state where it’s legal sends one to a child in Texas? All states should be legal, or none. Home computers have been sending porn (to and from minors) for 20 years, the cell phone just got cameras 10 years ago, now they send porn on cell phones - no difference, they just changed the name out of denial.

If I rob a bank in a VW, or rob a bank in a Chevy, is there a difference? I robbed the bank! I sent porn! A modem in a cell phone and a modem in a home computer are the EXACT same vehicle of transmission. ALL use Interstate phone lines, so the federal government should say 'no' to sexting, period. Or any parent can simply say it's their child's phone. You know that families swap phones to go shopping, on a trip, etc. The parents will be in possession of the phone with naked pics in the memory, or hidden in a file, but they are in possession of child porn and should be charged as well. Legal for all, or legal for none.

And if u think it's an innocent act, why don't they send a picture with clothes on? They are trying to get the other person excited and groomed for a future sexual situation. Grow up America, ALL naked picture-senders get a “record”, or none; selective prosecution is unconstitutional.... If you want to see that sending porn is legal for teens, then you MUST let the hundreds of thousands go in prisons for the exact same thing! It's all sexual in nature, period. Just changing the name to sexting doesn't make it moral (or a lot of bars will quickly be re-named churches), and I can rob a bank and simply change the words to 'early withdrawal' and it's legal - NOT!

This opens the door to making/selling/using drugs by 15 year olds and saying the exact same excuse (just a silly teen, let them go)! Stealing a car! Shooting a gun! Robbing someone! So let all porn makers/senders/lookers go or start building larger juvenile jails - because they are criminals. There is NO WAY that parents can control their own children on this, or most subjects any more.

Parents are pressuring the prosecutors to let their children go because of sexting, fine, silly teen, slap on the wrist, but how about the adults that simply looked at teen porn free on their home computers with no ill-will in mind? They lose a spouse, house, job, career, families, friends, savings - it's all the same thing, pornography, and parents are in denial if they defend it.

And do you really expect a teen to legally send porn for years, then they hit 18 and cannot do it any more?! That would be like telling teens that they can drink all they want in public for free, then at 18 they are criminals if they do it. MOST Homo sapiens will become addicted to a thrilling thing if they are allowed to do it unrestrained, and America's teens are no different. The prisons are full of people that simply looked at porn and their lives were ruined (they didn’t make it, they didn’t buy it), now an entirely new generation will be legally aloud to create, send, and receive naked pictures of minors.

One news article in Vermont said that sexting was simply a fad.... We are dealing with hormonal teens that now have a way to make, send or receive anything they want, period. Wait until they grow up, you WILL NOT believe what type of society we have then! And well over 50% of children are molested by their own siblings or friends, wait until those pictures get out.... The Gennie is out of the bottle. Don't believe me? Try taking a cell phone away from a teen....

Debra said...

Love it! Hell you are married and funny as all get out, have fun with it. A married couple can do whatever the heck they want to do with each other. I think you two are awesome!

Smart Mouth Broad said...

Pearl-Awwww, mom!

Liar-I knew I was forgetting something.

Blase-Is that like gettin jiggy?

Di-That they do.

Michel-I think it would be a bad idea to tweet sext. Would that be twext?

Mona-Just do it. You're blogging and tweeting. Go ahead and sext too. LOL

Thistle-Tessa is one of the cool kids.

Pseudo-If that's the case, my thighs are in the same category. I've had my phone sitting right on my lap and didn't feel the vibration. *sigh*

Mona- :-)

Tony-You're right about that.

Wil-Thank you. Your comments always cheer me as does your blog.

Movie-I agree, it's a great way to stay connected during times apart.

Jan-Are you sure? That surprises me for some reason.

thyme-This leaves me to wonder what kind of impression of MHS I've given you? LOL

DZ-For future reference, please see very long comment below. (which I'm pretty sure must be spam because he clearly didn't read this post)

Linda-Have you been sexting? You naughty girl. LOL

Gaston-You would be surprised.

Tricia-There's always next time. In my case, I think it's better without tho.

MLS-Aww, come on, we were just funnin'.

ST-I once sent my boss a text asking if she wanted to go to a movie that night but it was meant for MHS. It could have been worse for sure. I didn't know about sexting then. *wink*

Snowbrush-You're probably better off for it.

Debbie-I ROFL that you looked it up. I can't wait to hear your nephew's story.

Delaney-Love's what makes the world go round.

WW-He just doesn't know what he's missing.

OG-You crack me up.

Debra-Thanks. We're just two people who've been together for a very long time, love each other and show it. We really are dull. Just ask our daughters.

Smart Mouth Broad said...

RandyBoise-While I respect your opinion and completely agree that it is not something I would want my children doing, I am classifying your comment as spam because I can't imagine that you read this post. If you had you would know that it was done tongue in cheek, that I'm 48 years old and have been married to the man that I'm "sexting" for almost 29 years.

I acknowledge this is a problem with our young people but this blog is not the forum for your rant. The readers here know me and know the spirit in which this post was written. No one here, reader or writer, is promoting true sexting.

Auntie, aka Dog Girl said...

Hey Girl,
Sexting between two consentig OLD FARTS is totally cool.
LOL

Twenty Four At Heart said...

Can't you get your phones taken away for that? ; )

Midlife Jobhunter said...

Not sure what it is, but sounds like fun. As it should be.

Am replying here, also in the initial post. Thank you for the lovely award. I am a tad behind, on everything. I promise to catch up soon.

Midlife Mama said...

Isn't it amazing how a little sex in your post generates all the comment chatter?? I've had the same experience. Not sure what that says about our society, but say the word "sex" and they come out of the woodwork. So to speak. Not that I'd talk about "wood" during a comment about sex or anything.... I'm just sayin'. LOL

And yeah, you an MHS make me want to puke. Because I am very jealous. :)

Jason, as himself said...

Uh, no. This is so vanilla. These sexters get super duper graphic. Believe me, I know.
