Study Claims One Out of Four Teens Involved in Sexting

Everybody panic some more!


A new study found that one out of four teens has done "sexting" due to peer pressure. Most of the time, these teens were influenced by their friends or their romantic partners and willingly ignore the possible risks.

Sexting is the sending of sexually explicit images or messages through mobile communication. It is a combined term of "sex" and "texting" which became an official word in the dictionary in 2012. Having it accepted as a word is a clear sign that it is widely used worldwide.
