It's medicinal sexting, officer, I swear it!

Everyone and their mothers (ew) wants to be better at sex, but it's rare that developing those bedroom skills is as easy as pressing a few buttons on your little e-phone, right?

Sometimes, however, it is  that easy. As it turns out, researchers have found that the simple act of sexting can improve one's sex life by as much as 88 percent.

No fancy dick moves or vaginal acrobatics needed; just a few mildly intelligent movements with two opposable thumbs and you're on the road to "sex god" status.

The vital intel comes from a study by Drexel University’s Women’s Health Psychology Lab in Philadelphia, which concludes that couples who sext each other have much higher levels of sexual satisfaction than those who don't.

One small catch: the ability to sext your way to orgasm-world is contingent on who you're sexting.

According to the study, the best person to sext is a significant other. The researchers found that the people who benefited most from the sex-enhancing effects of sexting were those in long term relationships. People with balls and chains actually reported higher levels of sexting as well. The majority of participants, nearly 75 percent, said they sexted in the context of a committed relationship, while 43 percent did as part of a booty call or friends-with-benefits relationship.

Conversely, single participants had “significantly lower levels of sexual satisfaction than individuals who were casually dating or in a relationship.” This suggests that sexting only helps when you're sexting someone who has met your parents and knows about your debilitating fear of pickles.

The researchers didn't offer a possible explanation for why that is, but we're guessing it's because sexting introduces novelty into a relationship, and novelty leads to better sex. When you're single and texting someone new, the whole experience is already novel, so you don't get the same kind of excitement from spicing up your relationship via iPhone that couples do.

All this is great news for your own sex life because sexting is now almost as common as breathing; more than 8 out of 10 people surveyed online by the study's researchers admit to sexting in the past year.

Using our infallible logic, that should mean that the more people sext in their own lives, the better sex you'll have with them when you drag them home at 3 a.m. after a rowdy night of getting rejected by everyone at the bar except them. We're not doctor or anything, so who knows if that's true, but that's what we like to say to ourselves in the mirror every morning before work.

And now, we'll leave you with this: our favorite sext of all time:
