Sexting:

v: the act of text messaging someone in the hopes of having a sexual encounter with them later; initially casual, transitioning into highly suggestive and even sexually explicit...



From the Urban Dictionary, yesterday.

I read "v. the art of text messaging..."

Honest.

Robin Hunt said...

of course it may well be an art, though the examples in the Urban Dictionary are not so art-ful.

Yeah, and the artfulness it's not only linguistic or literary, but in the ability to "sext" without being caught or raising suspicions...
