Sexting or Online Text Messaging

The sexting trend, the act of sending sexually explicit messages and nude photographs, primarily between mobile phones, was first mentioned in a 2005 article in the Sunday Telegraph Magazine. Sexting involving teenagers sending nude photographs of themselves to their friends led to a legal gray area in countries that have strict anti-child pornography laws. Some teenagers who have texted nude or suggestive photos of themselves to peers have been prosecuted with possession or distribution of child pornography.
