What is sexting?

Sexting is when someone shares sexual, naked or semi-naked images or videos of themselves or others, or sends sexually explicit messages. They can be sent using mobiles, tablets, smartphones, laptops – any device that allows you to share media and messages. Sexting may also be called:
    • trading nudes
    • dirties
    • pic for pic.
It is important to remember a quick snap can have long term consequences. Once a message or image has been shared, the sender has no control about how it’s used. Sexting can leave a child vulnerable to bullying, blackmail, online grooming or abuse. It’s also a criminal offence to create or share explicit images of a child, even if the person doing it is a child. Click here NSPCC Advice on Sexting.
