Sexting is Good

A press release starts with the usual negative tone:

"The practice of sexting may be more common than generally thought among adults. More than eight out of 10 people surveyed online admitted to sexting in the prior year, according to research presented at the American Psychological Association’s 123rd Annual Convention."

I mean how often is the word "admitted" used in relation to good things, or even neutral ones?  But then the actual results of the research are described:

"...the researchers found that greater levels of sexting were associated with greater sexual satisfaction, especially for those in a relationship ... The researchers also found that greater levels of sexting were associated with relationship satisfaction for all but those who identified their relationship as “very committed." 

So, sexting people are more committed to their partners and more happy with their sex life.
