A new study about sexting

The research revealed that one in four have received "sexts" and one in seven have sent them. One in 10 teenager admitted to forwarding on "sexts" without consent from the original sender. The team of psychologists and researchers conclude that sexting is nowadays a normal part of the teenage experience.

"The prevalence of sexting has increased in recent years and increases as youth age. Further research focusing on nonconsensual sexting is necessary to appropriately target and inform intervention, education, and policy efforts. An important area of future inquiry will be the identification of variables associated with non-consensual sexting, as well as the evaluation of the effectiveness of educational campaigns and legal policies striving to mitigate non-consensual sexting in youth," the researchers wrote.
