If you're in Austin, Texas, for South By Southwest this week, make sure to attend "Kids in Cuffs: The Trouble with Teen Sexting Laws," a Reason-hosted panel discussion about why laws criminalizing consensual sexting between underage adults should be abolished.

The event will feature Amy Lawrence, a mother of a teenager who was arrested for exchanging consensual sexts with his girlfriend; Emily Yoffe, a contributing editor at The Atlantic and former "Dear Prudence" columnist for Slate; Emily Horowitz, a professor of sociology at St. Francis College; and me.

The event will be held on Friday, March 9, at 3:30 p.m. in Salon F at the Hilton Austin Downtown.
