Teen Sexting Now the Norm not Just in Texas

An analysis of Teen Sexting

When SnapChat came out, many were skeptical.  Well, who needs that anymore?  Teens and adults alike share sexual images in texts as common as word texts.  This rapid shift in our culture was first adopted by males, as they are more visual.  Females have been quick to adapt and share their pics as a form of courtship.

As many as 20 percent of adolescents and 44 percent of young adults have
shared nude or semi-nude photos of themselves via cell phone or social
networking sites, a behavior known as sexting. Sexting behavior and what
results people expect may differ depending on a person’s gender,
relationship status, and sexual identity, are explored in a study published
in Cyberpsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking.
