It helps you to connect with your partner 

Sex is a binder. When you actually have a conversation around it, it will make you feel more together with your partner. In essence, you'll be exchanging your intimate feelings and fantasies with the most important person. This open form of communication is enough to even build anticipation for when you actually meet. You're able to recreate what you'd talked about with your partner when sexting. It also gives you the fulfillment that your partner is open enough with you to express themselves sexually instead of doing it elsewhere. 

Maintains playfulness in your relationship 

Sexting is filled with lots of steamy messages and also some naughty ones too. All these lead to the release of the oxytocin hormone as you feel good from the playful nature of the sexting. To a great degree, it involves some jokes and really meant to bring you closer. You'll end up realizing that your partner wants you the same way you actually do, which is a plus because it shows you have a great bond between you. 

Sex is demystifyed 

Did you know that there are relationships that even whispering about sex is forbidden? However, conversations around sex should flow and as open as possible. It's important to enjoy sexting with your partner as it assures the benefit of unraveling the mystery of sex. When you communicate with your partner about this fantasy you have, you're actually creating room for your partner to imagine and also contribute to their feelings and expressing their deepest desires. In so doing, sex becomes an easy topic to delve into.

In truth, couples who report on being frequent sexters also report higher levels of satisfaction in their relationship. This is satisfaction generally and also towards sex itself. This is because sexting will ensure your relationship is filled with openness, and nothing is hidden. You also get to be intimate with your partner even when you're not together which is a plus. You're less likely to get attracted by other people flirting with you since your partner ensures that desire in you is quenched.
