What you need to know if you value your privacy.

If you own a smartphone and are currently dating, you've probably sent at LEAST one sext.

Maybe it wasn't a photo of your breasts (in all their glory), but perhaps a suggestive message about what you planned on doing the next time you got the shirtless hunk of the moment in your clutches? 

I thought so. 

We may all be sexting fiends, but in this day and age we've got to take our privacy seriously, too. 

You never know who is seeing the messages you're sending out. 

That's why so many people rely on sexting apps to help them send their dirtiest sexts. 

There are a myriad (and more) sexting apps available with the mere tap of a screen, but how do you know which one is REALLY the sexting app for you?

Why, with my help of course! 

I've rounded up the 6 best sexting apps to help you keep pictures of your body confidential because it's important to ensure the privacy of your sexy selfies.

1. HouseTab App

If I was single I would use this app every single day of the week.

Well, maybe not on Sundays. 

A girl has gotta take a rest sometime! 

HouseTab shows you the available people hanging out at the same bar as you. 

Too nervous to go chat in person? Send a HouseTab message and get the ball rolling. 

Standout feature: You can actually buy the person you're flirting with a drink in real time. Send a "drink" and all they have to do is head over to the bartender to redeem it. 

2. Snapchat

You know it, you love it, Snapchat

Snapchat started out as a safe way to send your sexy pics without having to worry about them sticking around on the internet forever. 

While the photos still disappear, they're now more well-known as a G-Rated social media experience. 

But we can't ignore their sexting app roots. 

Heck, they practically invented sexting apps! 

Standout feature: Ask me when SnapChat started and I'd say the fact that your sexy pics vanish, but screenshots have kind of ruined that game.

At least SnapChat will tell you if your sexting partner snapped a screenshot, so you can remember to never sext that creep again!

And of course their filters are world-class. Not sexy (unless you're into flower crowns, I don't know your life), but very fun. 

3. KIK 


I really only knew of KIK as the app that the Kardashians were promoting for a while, which probably just says a lot more about me and where my interests lie then it does anything else. 

KIK was once Blackberry's messaging service, but now it's a standalone chat platform that lets you send texts without using a phone number. 

Standout feature: The anonymity is nice, but the fact that you can chat with up to 50 folks in one group makes it ideal for planning your next sex party or orgy. 

4. Tinder 

You can't make a list of go-to apps for sexting and not mention Tinder. 

Tinder uses your location to help you find and meet people in your area, making casual sex a breeze. 

I also really love that Tinder puts YOU in control. Like someone, swipe right. Not into it, left you go. 

It doesn't get easier than that. 

Standout feature: Tinder cuts out any and all baloney. You find someone you like near you, and sex is had. BOOM. Doesn't get more straightforward than that.

And of course you can use it as a dating app if you want a little more than just hot sex.

5. Wickr 

Wickr is kind of like Snapchat minus all of the filters and stories. 

It's sole purpose is to provide a place for you to safely and discreetly share your nude photos with your sweetie.

I mean, you could also just be sharing pictures of cheesecake that you really don't want anyone else to see, but frankly, I don't think that's what you're up. 

Standout feature 

Wickr really does destroy your photos, complete with bomb-exploding graphics to make you feel like James Bond. 

Plus all of their data is mega-encrypted, which basically means there is zero percent chance your boss will ever accidentally see your vagina. 


Wickr was co-founded by a woman. So cool.

6. FaceTime 

When you think "apps designed to help you have sexy sexts" you don't necessarily think FaceTime, right?

Time to change that. 

FaceTime is the new Skype, making it easier than ever to connect with your sweetie for some face to face...time, even when you're both far apart. 

Standout feature

The products designed to use WITH FaceTime. Lovehoney has actually designed a selfie-stick that live streams images from inside your vagina straight to your lover's eyeballs. Sounds pretty scary to me, but hey, whatever floats your boat.
