According to a new study, every Tuesday at 10 a.m., the gates of carnal desire open up and spew out a torrid stream of sexual text messages for approximately 2 hours. On Tuesdays, whispers everyone on the planet in unison, we send people digital photos of our erogenous zones.

An initially-surprising study by Retina-X Studios, a company that develops tracking tools for computers, tablets, smartphones, et. al., polled 4,8000 people and found that most sexting occurs between 10 a.m. and noon on Tuesdays. Which seems weird at first glance, but โ€” reflecting further on it โ€” Tuesday mornings makes a lot of sense: at nighttime, left to your own devices in the privacy of your own home you can just do actual sex stuff; on Monday morning, you are too numb to the world to enjoy sending sexually-explicit pictures or texts; on Wednesday morning, you've probably already been too crushed by the wheels of industry to bother. Tuesday mornings are an ideal time to sext. Good call, everyone.


The study also found that iPhone users are twice as likely to sext as Android users. This, too, is also unsurprising because, on iPhones, you can use emojis to tastefully depict a handjob.
