Sexting: The propagation of amatory messages

This 1906 cartoon was remarkably prescient, as were many similar drawings in the long history of Punch (or the London Charivari) between 1841 and 2002. I grew up with Punch and was an avid reader, although this particular drawing, reproduced in Buzzfeed is just a tad before my time. The artist’s forecasts were spot on, just a hundred years before their time. The English language has also moved on: An amatory message is now a sext.
