According to a new study involving 2000 teens, those that sexted - sending explicit pics or messages were more likely to engage in sexual activity. This is worrisome especially among children. And then there's the worry of sexually transmitted diseases.
“No one’s actually going to get a sexually transmitted disease because they’re sexting,” Dr. Eric Rice, a researcher from the School of Social Network at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, told Reuters. “What we really wanted to know is, is there a link between sexting and taking risks with your body? And the answer is a pretty resounding ‘yes.’”
The study showed that 15% of teens aged 15-18 who had a handheld device said they sexted while 50% admitted to knowing someone who has or does sext. The majority did not partake in sexting, or so they say.
If you're a concerned parent, it's best to take up the subject and use it as a way to discuss more difficult subjects with teens by explaining to them the inappropriateness of the act. Being educated about safe practices now leads to less worrying troubles later in life.
