I am fascinated by emojis! Allowing people to have little universal pictures in digital communication allows for users to amplify, direct and give tone to written material. IRL human expression relies on all types of factors, other than the words being spoken, to influence how we encode and decode through conversations. Facial and eye expressions, hand movement, tone of voice, and body language all affect how someone reads you. With texting, we don’t get the benefit of having exterior influences to guide conversations to correct assumptions.
With the rise of emoji use though, we have the opportunity to add a whole facial expression and even accompanying objects and hands to get across the meanings of our words. They can change conversations drastically; “We need to talk later.” and “We need to talk later. 😈” have completely different tones with only one emoji impacting their interpretations. They really do have an impact on how we text, especially with new people who aren’t used to our texting habits and styles. Emojis can be subverted by different means too, or show up differently based on what OS your phone has (a rant for a different day, but look at emojipedia for an example). There are so many possibilities!
As I’m so passionate about emojis, I figured I should share which ones are my favourite to use while flirting and sexting. Hopefully, I can encourage you to step outside the box that is your “frequently used” section of the emoji keyboard, because there are some stellar and unexpected options beyond the classic 🍆 & 🍑.
Face Blowing a Kiss 😘
The kissy face is such a common emoji for me! Every time someone says something cute, they get a kissy emoji. Every time they make me smile, they get a kissy emoji. I just can’t stop sending them!! I mainly use the kissy face when I’m feel flirty and smiley, but I’m also known to use it during sexting, kind of like a way to mimic giving a partner a kiss in between a blowjob.
Smiling Face With Heart-Eyes 😍
“Oh wow!”,”Gosh”,”Help”, “Thank you.” are all exclamations that have accompanied the ever wonderful heart-eyed emoji in my texting. I use the 😍 when I have a visceral reaction to a phrase or visual that has been sent my way. My eyes light up, heart starts beating faster and my cheeks turn crimson: that’s what the heart-eyed emoji represents to me.
Face Savoring Food 😋
I’m not savoring food when I send this, but I am savouring cute conversations with babes! I use this face when I’m feeling giggly and a little bratty; choosing it from my keyboard usually accompanies a sassy comment.
Person Shrugging 🤷
The person shrugging emoji is one I use when I’m feeling a little coy. If I’m texting with someone who is also trying to be coy with me, I go “What do you mean?? 🤷” The person’s little face has a surprised open mouth on my phone, so to me during flirting scenarios, it implies a pretend questioning. I use it to make my partners admit the naughty things that were on their mind.
Grinning Face With Sweat 😅
Or as I like to dub it ‘Grinning Face With Cum’! Just kidding, but not really. This emoji, to me, has a couple different uses: a giggly nervous look for flirting, or a come on/around my face during sexting. Obviously, it’s going to depend on the context it’s used in but Grinning Face With Sweat is such a cute face to throw in when you’re flirting with a crush that makes you sweat.
See-No-Evil Monkey 🙈
This little monkey with their eyes covered is probably one of my most frequents in all types of texts. I typically use them when I’m getting wet, feeling a little embarrassed or feeling shy. It works for so many emotions!! I never actually cover my eyes with my hands… actually wait now that I think about it sometimes I do. Anyway, I love being able to convey to my partners that I’m getting all blushy.
Smiling Cat Face With Heart-Eyes 😻
I didn’t think I was one for pet-play but after a partner told me I reminded him of a little kitten while we were curled up at his hotel during a very sexy evening, I just can’t help feeling turned on by it! It usually represents the same feels from the normal heart-eyed emoji, but much more submissue and vulnerable. I’ve only used it with a select few people. If I’m complaining about something with said people and am pouting, I use the Crying Cat Face 😿.
Baby Angel 👼
I’m just an innocent baby angel, y’all!! Or at least that’s what I like to think when I choose this emoji to send during flirty texting. It’s basically the equivalent of the little smiling face I do where I bring my hand to my face and look up adorably. I ‘baby angel’ when I’m feeling cute, sly, or pretending to be innocent. A big part of my submissiveness is that I enjoy pretending to be an innocent girl, when in reality I’m naughty but still with a sweet twist. The baby angel represents this fully, so it comes up a lot when I text cuties
The Princess emoji is peak brat for me. It’s when I get a little demanding, but in a way that’s telling my partner I need to be put treated like royalty but also put in my place at the same time. I pull this out for both flirty and sexy texts.
Face Screaming in Fear 😱
The reaction I have when I see a really nice dick, vulva, booty or boobs tbh.
