So at my church they are always tell us (teens) to save our selves till marriage. And ever sine there was a story on CNN about sexting, they thingk every teenager does it. But I’m like uhhh no one does that… So heres an article that proves mt point.
“A small fraction of teens have engaged in sexting, according to the Pew Internet and American Life Project, which spoke to 800 teens around the country.
Sexting is jargon for the practice of sending nude or sexually suggestive text messages.
From all the numbers, it doesn’t seem that sexting is spiraling upwards in frequency. As the Pew study notes, 83 percent of teens have cell phones now. I think there has to be a limit for this kind of activity.
What’s happening here, according to the Pew study, is that some teens engage in sexting because of a relationship. In some cases, it’s a substitute or prelude to actual sexual activity. In other cases, it’s a way to experiment without being physical. The third major scenario, identified by Pew, is sexting among teens who are already romantically involved.
The big problem is that sometimes these messages get forwarded along to other people, sometimes as a way of gossip, and other times as revenge when a relationship goes sour.”
