Athletes and Their Obsession with ‘Sexting’

Brett Favre, Greg Oden, Tony Parker and Tiger Woods have something else in common besides being an athlete….they love to ‘sext.’ For those of you who are not aware of this technology, ‘sexting,’ according to the urban dictionary, is “when a guy and a girl send dirty text messages back and forth to each other. Pictures may also be included, but only if you're lucky.” We can now add another name to the list of ‘sexters’ – Minnesota Viking defensive end Ray Edwards. Pictures of Edwards’ half-naked body were leaked and posted on my favorite entertainment blog site, mediatakeout.com (don’t judge me). Now for me, nothing makes me hotter than seeing a half-naked man with a chiseled chest, six-pack and bulging biceps. But seeing Edwards in his man-panties with rings on his nipples – yes, that’s right, nipple rings – did nothing for me! Some might find nipple rings on a man sexy –to each her/his own – but come on! That is some suspect behavior for a man. Anyways, this issue of athletes sending pictures of their nakedness to women – or men – is getting out of hand. One would think that after the backlash and embarrassment that Favre and Odem face – Favre receiving the most – for sending out pics of their “little ones” that Edwards would have thought twice before texting those pictures. Although he was probably sending them to a girl for her enjoyment, he was obviously thinking with the head below his belt because anybody with some sense would know that 10 times out of 10 those pictures will get leaked. And you’ll see them on mediatakeout.com the next day as the top story. If you forgot Ray, YOU ARE AN ATHLETE!! A famous person! A known figure! The media and blog sites will pay stacks of money to get photos of a naked celebrities and public figures. Clearly the girl you sent them to lied to you if she said she wasn’t going to show those pictures to anyone else. Now the pictures are out and you’re looking like Booboo the Fool. I hope this will be a lesson to other athletes, but I pretty sure it won’t be because I have a feeling that I will be seeing more naked of pics of an athlete probably next week. Hey Ray, I hope you have some extra padding over those nipple rings when you’re on the field.
