It's 2017 and that means that people can engage in pillow talk without any pillows at all, how nice huh? Technology is an amazing thing—it connects people near and far, it ensures safety, provides entertainment, offers convenience—I could continue, but you get the point. The unfortunate thing however, is that for every amazing thing that comes with new tech, most specifically smart phones, there's a number of shitty things that follow.

One of those things happens to be texting fails. Between autocorrect and sending things to the wrong contact, it can get a little hairy. This is never more apparent than when the text is classified as a sext and recipient is not who you're expecting. The folks over at Cosmo shared an incredibly funny, albeit horrifying article about the real life dangerous of sexting gone wrong. Here are a few notable ones—

Office Party

"I was at home and my boyfriend was at work. We had been sexting basically all day and up until about an hour until he got home [when] I decided to change things up a bit. I took out one of the vibrators that he had bought me and I recorded a video of me using it. I sent it and was waiting on a response. I didn't get any messages from him for an hour, and by that time, I knew he was off work. When he got home, he informed me that he opened it at his desk at work not thinking and three of his bosses saw my video. So basically every time I go see him at work, I feel totally judged by all the guys there, because that is something that you can't unsee. We also didn't have sex that night because we were both humiliated." —Haley, 20

You Might Want To Shoot The Messenger

"I texted my boyfriend who was mountain biking with his dad, "You still biking or are u ready to ride me?" His dad, who accidentally picked up his phone, replied with 'Sarah this is Colton's dad, I'm using his phone this afternoon, but I'll be sure to pass along the message.'" —Sarah, 21

All In The Family

"One night, I was on the phone with my boyfriend and I was telling him about the pictures I've taken for him but never actually sent to him. I was always too nervous to send them because they were the raunchiest photos I've ever taken. I decided to do it anyway, and I accidentally sent it to his dad! They both have the same name and I sent the picture so quickly that I didn't double-check to make sure it was the right person! I immediately flipped out and made him call his little sister to delete the picture on his phone while he was sleeping (it was 3:30 a.m.). She didn't answer, so I had to call his little brother. Eventually, his sister woke up and they both went to delete the picture. Now both of his siblings have seen this mortifying photo of me, and it's been awkward ever since." —Liv, 22

Just Another Manic Monday

"So, my breasts were looking larger than usual ... obviously I wanted to take a quick picture and send it over to my boyfriend. Trying to make his Monday a little better, I took a sexy pic and proceeded to message it to him. My phone decided to glitch when I pressed 'send.' Meaning, it sent to my work group chat of over 20 people! I'm forever mortified, but I definitely made some other people's Monday!" —Amber, 22
