Sexting

Sexting is the sending or forwarding of nude, sexually suggestive or explicit pictures or messages on your cell phone or online. Real problems can emerge when those involved are under 18 years old, are pressured into sexting, or when sexts go viral. Laws about sexting are still growing and changing, but it definitely leads to trouble, not only in your social life, but potentially with the law! Sending sexual images of or to someone under the age of 18 is child pornography. A new “revenge porn” law criminalizes the sending of explicit photos and videos, allowing victims of these harmful and degrading crimes to take legal action. These images and acts can have impact on your future employment opportunities, college acceptance, military recruitment and your reputation.
