XXX in Tech
When you’re on Tinder just looking to score a one night stand, sorting through all the saps in search of true love (or at least a first date) can be a royal pain. How is anyone supposed to get straight to it when everyone’s being ambiguous, trying to chat and whatnot?
Tinder’s X-rated brother, the adult-oriented hookup app Mixxxer, launched last week to help combat this problem and help users find nearby hookups without the hassle.
Crime and Punishment
Excessive texting and teen sex are two of the predominant nightmares haunting parents today.
It’s fitting, then, that these two parental bugbears have been found to correlate: teens who send 100 or more text messages per day are more likely to be sexually active, a recent study found.
Authorities in Virginia are planning to take a bizarre — and utterly despicable — route to convict a teen on child pornography charges: forcing him to get a boner and taking photos of his erect penis.
A 17-year-old Manassas City teen was charged with two child pornography-related felonies after his 15-year-old girlfriend’s mother reported him for sexting, the Washington Post reports. Now, the teen, whose name was withheld by the Post, is facing a search warrant that would allow law enforcement officials to take him to a hospital, give him an erection-inducing needle, and photograph his penis.
App for That
You might have heard by now that people can be finicky when it comes to sexting. Ladies don’t actually love dick pics, for example, and sending one could actually land you in the clink if you’re in Kenya.
Lucky for phallic photo fanatics, you can now hire a robot to stand in for the human mate you scared away with your last drunken booty text. It’s called Sext Adventure, and it costs $5.
Apps > Doctors
For as long as teenagers have been sexting, creating rebellious subreddits, and simply spending all their time glued to devices, parents have been trying to put a stop to the digital madness.
A new app for Android allows parents to set and control restrictions on their children’s phones and tablets from their own devices.
WebMD announced they’d be beefing up patient-doctor interactivity, but there’s one thing they forgot.
First Derm lets users send in pictures of their infected business to a doctor for a painless diagnosis.
Crime and Punishment
Apparently nudies are what this doctor ordered.
A Seattle anesthesiologist was suspended for allegedly putting patients’ safety at risk with his sexting habits, Reuters reported.
Sext and the City Jail
A 30-year-old Florida man was arrested on Sunday morning after sending a slew of lewd selfies to an unsuspecting cop.
The man, Paul Kirleis, first called 9-1-1 to report a suspicious vehicle, Wink News reports. A police officer returned the call on his department-issued cell phone. Mr. Kirleis allegedly followed up by texting the cop six times, and then sending him naked and lingerie-clad selfies.
It’s ridiculous enough that in the U.S., teens can face criminal charges just because of their horny text tendencies.
Now, the Kenyan government has taken slut-shaming to a whole new level. In Kenya, grown-ass men and women can now be thrown in jail for up to three months for sexting.
“Sexting or sending obscene messages could land you in prison,” Kenyan daily newspaper The Star reports on its website. “This is according to Christopher Wambua from the communications authority from Kenya.”
Attention sexters and Tinder addicts alike — the other end of your steamy convo is probably wearing sweatpants and watching Netflix.
At least, that’s according to a study conducted at Indiana University – Purdue University in Fort Wayne. The results, published in Computers and Human Behaviors, showed that almost half the people who have sent sexy texts have lied while doing so.
