Texting intimate photos

Is it ok to want my wife to text me private pictures while I'm at work? I would be extra extra careful to keep them only to my viewing. Here's hoping...

Our Answer:

Sure, it's okay for her to send you explicit photos to your cell phone and it's okay for you to want her to... But don't make her do it if she's uncomfortable doing so.

...While you're at work? That's okay too, if you're looking at them on your breaktime! Don't get yourself too distracted or your boss may wonder what's going on! ;-)

That being said...there are a few important considerations to keep in mind:

  1. Have you both taken every precaution to prevent anyone else from seeing those photos? For example, you'd hate to show someone photos on your camera phone forgetting about those explicit ones your wife sent you!

  2. What if you lost your phone and someone else opened it up? Or one of your kids got curious about what's on your phone? Here are a couple of suggestions:
    • set your phone to lock automatically when it's closed or not used after a minute or two AND then set it to require a password to unlock
    • make sure photos never include you or your wife's faces

If there would be a guarantee of privacy I would go along with this, but we know from harsh experience that no telephone company can keep its text servers private from hackers and the government. Illegal hacking would be bad enough, but do we really want the amoral federal government in our Christian sex lives?

Imagine if all the curtains and blinds in your home were operated from the outside and you will get a good idea the level of trust you should place in phone text messaging.
