Sexting

KNOWING THE SCORE

SEXTING IS THE CREATION AND DISTRIBUTION OF EXPLICIT, NUDE OR SEMI-NUDE IMAGES VIA THE INTERNET OR BY MOBILE PHONE

“We know that young people are increasingly using technology not only to stay in touch, but to explore their sexuality and to push the boundaries in what they send and to whom they send it.

It is now so easy to send pictures instantly via emails and texts that we are seeing instances of boys or girls sending sexual images of themselves to others without considering the consequences.

They often find out later that the image has been passed on to many others and as a result they can be the victims of bullying or harassment.”

Peter Davies – Chief Executive of the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre.
