Sexting has become a major problem with people. Especially young kids with cell phones. All it takes is somebody you have a crush on to ask you to send an inappropriate picture of yourself and then it could go viral. In 2009, 58% of 12-year-olds own a cell phone. I know that i didn’t have a cell phone when i was 12. I think thats why so many kids are having problems with sexting is because they don’t really know what else to do with their phones and they’re at the age where they start to wonder about things of that nature.
One of my best friends sent a video in high school and they guy she sent it to sent it to every single contact in his phone. She is 22 now and people still giver her grief about it. She’ll never live that down and people will aways remember her as the “girl who sent the video.” Sexting is a choice though. All you have to do is say no, and your reputation won’t be put on the line. So next time somebody asks you to sext, think before you send.
