Sext chat for all ages
Fifteen percent of these teens also claimed to have received sexually explicit photos.This suggests a consent issue of people receiving photos without asking for them.
In 2013, it was found that sexting is often used to enhance the relationship and sexual satisfaction in a romantic partnership.Thus, instead of increasing intimacy in these types of relationships, sexting may act as a buffer for physical intimacy.In a 2008 survey of 1,280 teenagers and young adults of both sexes sponsored by The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, 20% of teens (13–20) and 33% of young adults (20–26) had sent nude or semi-nude photographs of themselves electronically."It raises the question that if someone sends something to you with the presumption that it's private and then you share it with others — which, when it comes to sexting, nearly 1 out of every 4 single Americans are doing, what do we want to consider that type of violation? " While on the surface, sharing sexts with a friend might seem less of a violation than posting revenge porn for the world to see, they both raise the same question of what's a reasonable (and legal) expectation of privacy in the online world." says Justin Garcia, Ruth Halls assistant professor for gender studies and research scientist at the Kinsey Institute, who led the study. "The real risk is not the sending of sexual messages and images per se, but rather the nonconsensual distribution of those materials to other parties," Garcia concludes.
