The younger generation is no longer beating around the bush when it comes to sex, according to new research.

Sexting is getting far more direct and to-the-point as dating apps like Tinder rise in popularity, with some twenty-somethings confessing it can takes them less than 10 text messages from the start of a conversation to organise a hook-up.

And we’ve reached the stage where, according to Statistic Brain, more than half of all adults aged 20-26 have sent or received a sext.

“The younger the dater is, I’ve found the shorter the number of messages get exchanged prior to arranging a date or hookup,” clinical psychologist Dr Belisa Vranich told Mashable.

With the holy grail of chat-up lines recently being revealed, is it any surprise?
