Up in Smoke: The Science of Sexting:

There’s a new suspect in the sexting scandal that has been sweeping Hollywood as of late, and the answer may surprise you. Clinical psychologist Marta Meana, the president of the Society for Sexy Therapy and Research believes that all of these urges can be traced back to science. ‘An increasing body of data is indicating that the way women feel about themselves may be very important to their experience of sexual desire and subjective arousal, possibly even outweighing the impact of their partners’ view of them.’ States Meana’s study and it’s not the only research that has been conducted on this issue.

Science has shown that more than half of women’s sexual fantasies are the desire to be sexually desirable to men. In one study, 47% of the women who took part fantasize about working in seducing jobs like a stripper, harem girl amongst other jobs that encourage showing skin and sexualizing their bodies. “Being desired is very arousing to women,” claims Meana, “(and) the little data we have indicate that eroticism just will not be told what to do.” Whatever the case, we’re happy that women enjoy celebrating their bodies, and flaunting their stuff to others. If it wasn’t for that, we’re not sure what we would do!
