Teens & Sexting

Post by BassMaster on Wed Aug 19, 2015 8:15 am


SEXTING = Sending sexually explicit messages, primarily between mobile phones

I want to pose a question here to all of you, about something that I know is a huge problem.
Like most issue's going on, I really do not pay much attention to them unless they affect me. Last night, someone I have been friends with for about 5 years sent me a nude selfie on my cell phone. I was shocked. I never asked for this, I never had a sexually related conversation with this person,  totally blew my mind to get this picture.
I thought okay, maybe it was intended for someone else, so I texted this person back, and she said "no, it was for you Hunter, I thought you might like it and return the favor and send me one".
She is 15, and I am 16, and I explained to her the trouble she could get into sending this to people, and the trouble I could get into having it on my phone.  What amazed me was she thought it was no big deal. I did tell her I do not want any more of these sent to my phone.
Now don't get me wrong, this girl is way hot, but I would rather not see her on a cell phone picture naked.

So, my question is, have you ever received one of these and did not know it was coming, and how did you handle it with that person when you got it.

I have had this happen once but it was on skype. I told the guy (he is about 16) not to send me one again. Yeah, we might be in a long distance relationship but I don't need that stuff on my computer not to mention the legal consequences. Ever since then though, he hasn't done it since.

It has not happened to me, but I know a couple kids in 8th grade that do it all the time.

I have gotten 4 in the past year, Two sent tome by mistake from people I did not know, meant for the person that had this number before I did. The other two were from girls I met that did not live near me, but met them at Camps I attended. Neither time did I ask for these and told them that a girl that did this was not the type of girl I was interested in hanging out with.

I'm 110% against sexting. Not only is it weird but I find it rude. Even in relationships, online or physical, like no. But then again I always let my friends use my phone so there's another reason.

I have never had that happen to me, and if I did, I would be pretty upset about it.

I agree with Amanda, it would really piss me off to get a nude photo on my phone. Needless to say, that person and I would no longer have a friendship.

Never would I ever consider doing that myself. Those pictures can come back and haunt you years from now, if you ever decide to run for a political office, or become a teacher or some career like that.

I have never received one, most people that know me are aware that I would not be acceptable to something like that.

People that send nude pics of themselves lack any sense of decency. As much as the testosterone and hormones affect us, common sense and thinking about the legal trouble you can face, should prevail.

I would never do that or let anyone else send me that. It does not matter if I knew it or not, if it was found on my phone, I would lose my phone, Ipad, laptop and be grounded for a very long time. I think it is just wrong to do that.
