Sexting — or using your phone to send sexual pictures, videos, or texts — might seem like no big deal. But before you hit send, there are some pretty big consequences to consider. Sexting means using your phone, computer, or camera to take or send sexy messages or images — usually selfies. But sexts can outlast your crush or even your relationship. Sexting can cause serious problems whether you send them or share them.
The pics might get sent around or posted online, where people like your family, teachers, and friends could see them. Does your boyfriend or girlfriend ask for or send you naked pictures? You have the right to say no to any form of sexual behavior, including sexting. You always deserve to feel safe and respected in your relationship. Is it legal? Sending, owning, or taking naked or sexual pictures of someone under 18 called a minor is generally illegal, even if you both said it was ok. Never send, store, or forward a naked picture of a minor. Is it what you want? Will it get shared?
When you like or trust someone enough to send them a sext, you might never imagine that they'd show your private messages to others. But sometimes people do mean things you'd never expect, especially after a fight or a breakup. They may share your sexts as a way to get back at you. There are a of ways sexts can get into the wrong hands on purpose or by accident and cause some damage. So think twice before sending anything to anyone that you wouldn't want the whole world to see.
Honestly — you just can't guarantee that. You might think you're only sharing things with certain people, but anyone can save and send pictures and texts to others even with Snapchat or other hidden photo apps. Once it's out there, you have no control over who can see your picture, and no way of getting it back.
Even if you delete it from your phone,or profile, other people can save or copy the image and spread it around.
Sharing naked pictures is abusive and a major violation of trust. Talk to them about why sexting might not be a good idea. There are lots of others ways they can flirt or let you know how they feel. Delete the sext as soon as possible. If your phone is lost, stolen, or borrowed someone might see it and share it with others. Remember, it's NEVER okay to share or post someone else's private photos or texts, even if you're in a fight or don't like them.
This is a cruel form of bullying and sexual harassment, and it can really hurt people.
