Sexting

 

Sexting is when someone sends or receives a sexually explicit text, image or video on their mobile phone, usually in a text message.

 

When people talk about sexting, they usually refer to sending and receiving:

 

•    naked pictures or 'nudes'

•    'underwear shots'

•    sexual or 'dirty pics'

•    rude text messages or videos.

 

They can be sent from a friend, boyfriend, girlfriend or someone you've met online. You might have also sent a sexual photo, video or text to someone else.

 

We understand how easily sexting can happen and how things can go wrong – even when you didn’t mean for them to.
