Just put the phone away and go to sleep. You've had a few too many and it isn't worth it.
Don't do it.
Don't click send.
Oh, what's the worst that can happen?
It's gone through many heads from time to time, but for some reason most can't hold back.
It's the epidemic that is hitting the cell phone world and, most recently, the sporting world.
Leave whispering sweet nothings for the ears, sexting is showing the eyes sweet everythings.
Let's take a look at those athletes whose thumbs "slipped."
And the research for this was hilarious, but not enjoyable in more ways than one obviously. You can do your own dirty work for pics because I'm not posting them.
Sports journalism at it's best.
Our most recent example of alleged sexting comes in the form of the one and only Brett Favre.
You may have heard of him.
Not only scoring off the field, according to Deadspin.com, allegedly Favre has sent some interesting pictures to former Florida State cheerleader, turned Playboy Pinup, turned Daily Line co-host, Jenn Sterger.
The two started off as friends in 2008, but the 26-year-old Sterger told Deadspin things got a tad different when Favre started leaving dirty voicemails and sending dirty pictures of himself, including a picture of him just wearing Crocs and showing off his grip, except with no football.
At least his feet were comfortable.
Sterger told Deadspin, "I don't roll that way. That way meaning old...or married."
Oh, Tiger. When will you learn?
One of the best moments of the Woods scandal was reading the following messages Woods sent to one Jaimee Grubbs.
“I will wear you out...when was the last time you got (bleeped)?” one message read. Another one from Tiger read, “Send me something very naughty…Go to the bathroom and take (a picture).”
He then sent her a message saying his wife may have gone through his phone and may be calling her.
Grubbs was a cocktail waitress in San Diego in 2007 when she met Woods in a Las Vegas nightclub.
If you're going to send nude pictures, make sure your name isn't Sizemore.
So many jokes.
Sizemore sent pictures to former Playboy Playmate Brittany Binger including ones of him just holding a teacup in front of him.
Yes, we've all heard the baseball cup jokes already too.
Do Playboy Playmates sext or do they just tell you what page?
Why is Greg Oden holding an anaconda?...oh.
Oden was out for the year with a knee injury, but apparently other parts of his body were able to stand (ZING).
He sent the fully nude pictures to a "lady friend," according to Oden. No one has confirmed who that lady friend actually was.
Yeah, this one is not by a famous athlete and is actually incredibly disturbing.
A high school baseball coach named Bartholomew McInerney was on trial earlier this year for inappropriate conduct with his players.
A coach on the Jersey Shore (I'd go for the Situation jokes if this weren't so bad), McInerney, referred to as Coach Bart, allegedly likes to talk to his players about their masturbation habits.
Since he can't be everywhere at once he made sure his players were to text him after they masturbate, even after they had gone off to college.
Here are quotes from the trial:
"Like several other victims, victim No. 9 also admitted he carried on with the text messages after going off to college as a way to "make more money." Other alleged victims have testified that McInerney offered them up to $5 for each text message.
Earlier this morning, victims 3 and 11 admitted they too continued to text McInerney after going off to college.
Victim No. 11 told jurors how McInerney initiated conversations with him about masturbation and introduced a code for texting him about masturbating. The code included a number for the duration of the act and a one-word description of how it felt "from bad to good to excellent."
I hear Hell is warm this time of year.
Good old Sean Salisbury.
Where did you run of to with your idiotic views on football?
Apparently Salisbury was employed at a Dallas radio station before getting the boot for some sexting.
According to someone close to the station Salisbury "freaked out a station promo girl after sexting her."
Apparently at one point on air, Salisbury asked a girl to go to Cowboys camp with him and while off air he got her number only to intelligently brag about getting it back on the air, even posting a picture of the girl on the website to prove how "hot" she was. Whether this is the same girl or not, no one knows.
What a class act.
I'm pretty sure I can't post the conversation Beckham had with Dutch model and singer Rebecca Loos.
So here's the link.
Yes, Evan Schlongoria has already been used.
Apparently an alleged picture of Evan Longoria's penis has surfaced on the internet.
No proof can be made as apparently the photo does not show a face.
According to the author of this blog post, Jenna, Longoria found her on Facebook and started talking to her, eventually sending the picture along with a note that read, "Like that, babe?"
See, Grady Sizemore, this is the name you want to have before sexting.
Jason Robinson, a 32-year-old high school football coach at Mandarin High School in Jacksonville, was fired thanks to emailing a 19-year-old UCF student three messages, one of which was him pleasuring himself for 33 seconds and the other two were pictures of him in his underwear.
Robinson knew the UCF student because she attended Mandarin High School in 2008 before he had divorced his then wife, who was a teacher and coach at Mandarin as well.
Ah, the Diesel.
Shaquille O'Neil's wife, Shaunie, used a private investigator to hunt down sexting transcripts between O'Neil and then girlfriend Vanessa Lopez, which led to her filing for divorce.
Here is some of the transcript. No pictures have surfaced because a couple cell phones were required to see the full pictures.
Lopez: “I hope you had a wonderful day! I wish you were here papi “
Lopez: “I will make sure I put on something very sexy for you “
Big Aristotle, not so much.
And finally a touch of class...
Shaq: “Hey baby I’m still wit da babies. I’m sorry I’m a c u when I get bak”
