DM – Craig Evans must have thought things couldn’t get any worse after he accidentally sent a saucy text message intended for a lover to every contact in his phonebook. How wrong he was! The 24-year-old swimming coach ended up in prison for sex offences after the text also found its way to two young schoolgirls. Evans had typed an intimate invitation to his girlfriend asking her if she would like to engage in sex with him ‘skin on skin’. Excruciatingly, a slip of the fingers on his BlackBerry smartphone resulted in it going out via BlackBerry Messenger to all the numbers on his phone.Among the recipients of the text were two girls aged 13 and 14, which led to Evans, who teaches swimming in a leisure centre, being arrested and charged with causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity.
This is why I’m terrified to sext. Absolutely terrified. Because it would most likely occur when I’m drunk, and when I’m drunk my text game is like the Manning’s commercial game – way too much way too often, and it’s more than likely a swing and a miss. If I tried to add sexting into that chaos I’d inevitably send a detailed, misspelled description of anal sex to my grandmother or something. I just don’t trust myself at all.
That being said, I could definitely come up with something better than “skin on skin” like this guy used. C’mon dude, that’s all you got? Skin on skin? Weak fucking sauce. If anything, this guy should have been locked up for his lack of creativity.
PS – This story might be the nail in the coffin for BlackBerrys. Who wants to use a phone that makes it so easy to send a personal text message to EVERY contact in your phonebook? I don’t think I could do that on my iPhone if I tried.
