Cell phone users, often teens and "tweens", create provocative and nude, sexual images or videos of themselves using their cell phone's built-in digital camera. Sexting or "sex texting is the sharing and receiving of sexually explicit messages and nude or partially nude images via cellphone. In a recent survey from the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, one out of five teens reported that they have electronically sent or posted online, nude or seminude pictures or videos of themselves.
Tweens and teens are sending and receiving racy messages at increasing ratesa new meta-analysis in JAMA Pediatrics suggests. Rehashing data from 39 high-quality studies, researchers estimate that around 27 percent of youths aged between 12 and 17 receive sext messages on their phones and—to a lesser extent—on their computers. About 15 percent reported sending sensitive videos, pics, and texts. Perhaps the worst-case scenario is that receivers forward sext messages without consent.
Sexting is when you send or receive a text that contains sexually explicit material. Sexually explicit material can include nude photos, videos or explicit language. Anyone under the age of 18 is considered to be a minor child and can get in trouble with the law when they sext.
