There's an unsettlingly small amount of dick in pop culture. Turn on HBO at any time of day, and what can you find? Breasts aplenty, and even the occasional female crotch shot.
One of the greatest realizations I have had as an adult is that straight men don't care about sex. We're told they do—tons! I'm not saying they don't like the idea of it.
Why do people sext? Why do they send racy or naked photos or videos and sexually loaded texts? For a short-term hookup, sexting might seem like a direct way to get what you want—or at least try to.
