Skip navigation! Story from Sex. Connie Wang. But the reality of the matter is that a sexy selfie that hits the spot — the kind that you keep in a secret album in your phone, upload to a private Instagram account, let your buds see, and save for really deserving textual exchanges — takes a little bit of finesse.

Whether you love them or you hate them, they're constantly flooding our social media feeds. University of New South Wales researcher Khandis Blake says the next time you see a woman adjusting her bikini provocatively with her phone at the ready, don't think of her as vacuous or a victim. The study revealed women tend to sexualise themselves in environments with greater economic inequality, rather than where they might be oppressed because of their gender. The researchers say the findings are consistent across different geographic locations, even after taking into account and controlling for other factors that could influence patterns, like population size, human development and internet access. They say income inequality increases competitiveness and status anxiety among people at all levels of the social hierarchy, making them sensitive to where they sit on the social ladder and wanting them to do better than others. The researchers then found the exact same pattern in real-world spending in other appearance-enhancing areas.
Contrary to popular belief, the selfie is not a modern phenomenon. For decades, people have been doing selfies. Of course, back in the day doing a selfie was a bit awkward, and unless you were using a Polaroid, it was not an instantaneous process. PC and cell phone cameras changed all that, and the selfie has become its own art form, especially sexy selfies.
