Addicted to Sexting

Synopsis: "ADDICTED TO SEXTING", a compelling (and sometimes humorous) look at the rise and proliferation of this social phenomenon from several varying perspectives and how the lives of those engaged in it are affected. Throughout the course of the film, we examine nearly every aspect of what has become a national and international pastime. A vast range of opinions give their input about this delicate subject and, as such, discussions with notable figures in the entertainment, political and medical fields (among others) are included. The film touches on the many high profile scandals surrounding public officials and the resulting consequences of their actions. In stark contrast, an honest look at the possibility of sexting as a positive development within the framework of healthy relationships is also presented. Sexting exists and is not likely to disappear anytime soon. "ADDICTED TO SEXTING" shows the why, how and what possible purpose it serves.

Some new words out there you probably

need to hurry up and get hip to.

- Okay.

- Uh, sexting.

Sexting is out there now.

You familiar with that?

Explain to those

that may not know...

...what sexting is.

Sexting is when you text sexy.

- You know what I'm saying?

- Like what?

Like, "Boy, what you got on?"

"Ooh, I got on something,

you know?"

It's your favorite big booty,

Alexis Texas,

and I wanna sext

with all of you.

The reason I think

people engage in sexting

is the reason

that people engage in

all sorts of electronic

communication behind the screen.

There's immediacy to it

that's great.

It's like window shopping.

All you do is kind of like,

"Oh, I like that.

I like that." You know.

It's like, "Oh, I'm just gonna

go ahead and try that on."

It gets me through the day.

It makes me feel good about myself.

- It's a form of seduction.

- Exactly! That's what I said.

"I'm thinking of you.

"I want you right now,

but you're not here.

"Can't wait till you get home."

You know, it's not like,

we met in an airplane,

and now we're in the bathroom fucking.

It's all about the build.

There's a sense of safety.

There's a glass screen in front of you,

and you don't see the person

at the other end.

So what you see

is a reflection of you.

It's sexy.

Who doesn't like

hearing or seeing something sexual about

somebody that they're interested in?

The idea of lovers communicating

secret little messages

is as old as writing.

Sexting, first of all, can be

either verbal or visual.

I kinda have a different feeling

about both of them.

From the verbal side,

sometimes I think it's good for

people to be able, behind a screen,

to say things they might not be

able to say to someone's face.

Most of the sexting

that's going on

tends to be healthy,

in my opinion.

I think a lot of people are doing

it to keep their love lives active,

and to let their partners know

that they're interested

and aroused by them.

So I think,

absolutely, it's healthy.

Since I just moved

from Virginia to here,

I don't have the connection

with the person that I was

dealing with at the time.

So we're constantly, always,

sending little things back and forth

to each other every day.

I learned about sexting through

my friends in high school.

It was, like, not really

an adrenaline rush, I guess.

I mean, maybe a little bit,

but more of like an approval, too.

Like, I send a photo,

and they send back,

um, which means

that they're interested.

There's an anticipation

aspect to it.

The back and forth exchange

instead of having everything

so instantaneous.

I think it builds arousal

to have that anticipation.

The idea that men

are more visual

and that women need to be

stimulated through their mind,

is completely a stereotype.

Of course, there are women that prefer

to be stimulated more emotionally,

and there are men that

prefer to see a sexy picture.

But there's also

the opposite situation as well.

It's really a per person

and preference based situation.

I'm not really dating or doing anything,

so it's necessary right now.

'Cause I'd be so lonely

without it.

I haven't been out on a date,

a real date, since 1984.

Do you have any advice

that you can offer me

before I put myself out there?

Sexting is out there now.

You familiar with that?

I've heard of it, yes.

- You've heard of it?

- Yes.

You're gonna

have to participate.

What's interesting is they're not

finding any profile of the "sexter."

It's not particularly

one kind of person.

It seems to cut across

many ages.

It cuts across
