Never Send A Nude Picture

Never send a nude picture: With the advent of WhatsApp and Snapchat, it’s pretty easy to share photos and videos over your phone. However, this does not mean you should share your nude photos (regardless of your partner’s desire to see it) over the world wide web. Revenge porn is common these days, and you surely don’t want it to happen to you in case things go sour in the future.

Keep Things Mysterious

Don't give out too much information: Refrain from sending out too much information, as it doesn’t stimulate imagination too much. If you’ve planned something special for your partner, avoid revealing the plan. Instead, say that you have planned something really sexy and exciting, and you can’t wait for them to see it.
