Women are more likely to engage in sexting than men.

Sexting, sending sexually explicit messages via mobile phones, is popular with both the sexes. But it is women who are more likely to have ‘sexted’ than men, according to a new study.

Researchers studying sex and cheating in cyberspace questioned 5,187 men and women who belonged to a website where married people look for extra-marital flings. They found that women were far more likely than men to engage in a bit of sexting, the Daily Mail reported.

Two-thirds of them had cheated online, while threequarters admitted having an affair having had an affair in real life.

Researcher Diane Kholos Wysocki, from the University of Nebraska and Cheryl Childers, from Washburn University in Kansas, highlighted how the Internet has made it much easier for people to cheat on their partners. However, they concluded that despite the popularity of ‘sexting’ , most people do not view the Internet as a substitute for real-life physical contact.
