On Wednesday, an Idaho high school went under lockdown while the police investigated and arrested a 15-year-old boy for threatening to “kill all the girls” because he harassed the cheerleading team for nude photos and nobody, shocker of shockers, wanted to give him any.

Reddit can be a pretty a bleak place for feminists, with upvoted posts like this and this floating around. But redditors—or lurkers like me—who delve beyond the front page know there are corners of this sprawling open platform ruled by badass, empowered women. Take, for example, Reddit’s growing sex work community, where women are making bank selling adult goods and services on subreddits such as /r/pantyselling, /r/CamShow, /r/KikSnaps /r/fetishitems, and /r/Sexsells.

Let me preface this lighthearted article about a funny website by saying we understand that not all straight white boys text like this. We get it.
What almost every girl can bond over is the experience of trying to have a regular conversation with a guy when oh no- they try to make it sexual way too fast. Since when does telling a guy you just ate some celery mean I want a picture of your penis?

Sexting is slowly becoming a less taboo topic, and I’m all for it. As long as you’re two consenting adults OLD ENOUGH TO LEGALLY BE HAVING SEX then cool, I say send pics of your wiggly bits to each other all you want.

Don't be a weiner! Here are some rules about how to send hot texts to your lady friend without disrespecting her or making your wang look wack.
1. Flatter her. A text that says, "I can't stop thinking about your _____" is always welcome. (That is, if you've spent intimate time together. If you haven't, then don't send this.)
