The Practice Of Sexting Now Has A Tutorial

If you’re feeling particularly inept at sexting, some erotic writers and sex educators have the answer for you: a chatbot that tutors users in the “etiquette” of sexting.
As the New York Post reports, the new bot is called the “Slutbot” and was created by the originators of the relationship app "Juicebox.” The app costs $29 a week or $99 a month, but you can text “Slutbot” for free.
Juicebox CEO and founder Brianna Rader, 27, gushed to the Post, “Sex is so much more than a physical act. People want their minds stimulated, and dirty talk is a great way to do that.” Rader said that the app was built to deal with issues of consent and “sextiquette.” She added, “We even talked to a linguist to help us code all of the appropriate words.There are so many different ways you can say ‘yes.’”
Rader told Mashable, "After we got the request repeatedly over several months, it shed light on the fact that, really, what people struggle with in terms of sex and sexuality is communication. People often don't have the language to express their desires. They don't have the skills. And at Juicebox we believe that the best way to learn is to just do it." Mashable notes, “Slutbot lets you pick from six different paths based on gender and sexual orientation, including heterosexual, lesbian, gay, or non-binary configurations.”
Rader added, "The question format is an important way to model consent, and to show how consent is a great way to have dirty talk. It also gives the user a chance to practice. You're not just a passive receiver. We're trying to make the user practice using their own language too."
A company representative echoed, “In short: most people are not as good as they think they are at sexting. While texting has really opened up doors of communication for us, sometimes our message gets lost in translation — especially when you’re trying to get sexy with your partner over iMessage. There is also the element of educating about consent and respect in sexting. Ask most women that you know and they will tell you they have received an unsolicited dick pic at least once in their life. Slutbot is a great way to learn and practice sexting that makes both parties feel comfortable.”
Slutbot instructs users to use the code word “Pineapple” if they would prefer to stop sexting; The Post adds, “The bot also redirects if sexters type derogatory terms like 'bitch' or ‘whore.’ With permission from users who make it to the end of the conversation, the bot will send a ‘special image.’”
The most famous recent usage of sexting, of course, was former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner, who was convicted in 2017 of sexting an underage girl; last Friday a judge ruled he would have to register as a Level 1 sex offender. Federal officials said he had sent the girl “adult pornography” and repeatedly urged her to strip and touch herself while he watched on Skype and Snapchat in February and March 2016. Court papers said he sent a message on an app called Confide asserting “what he would do to her, if she were 18.”
