The New York Post reports that Google Docs are fast replacing "sexts" as the medium of choice among lusty literary lovers. "Partners are using the internet giant’s cloud-based word-processing service to send flirtatious notes and suggestive images," the outlet says. "Lovers typically share a single document and exchange messages both in the main body of text and using the in-line comment function." Simone Ver Eecke tells the outlet she and her boyfriend started a flirty Google Doc titled "Bedtime Stories" in January when they were dating long-distance and that it's since grown to a whopping 27 pages. “I kind of think of it as the modern love letter,” the 32-year-old says. “It’s very fun and fantasy-filled. Sometimes we just link to erotica we like." She adds, "Google Docs gets you into those Google Sheets.”
