Almost every day, I run across something in the media - a newspaper article or a blog post or a piece on the news - talking about young people and sexting. The majority of the time, it's framed as a negative, dangerous thing, that must be stopped. It's linked to other "risky" behaviours, and the general vibe is panic. But not a lot of adults, it seems, have actually bothered to ask young people what purpose sexting serves in their lives, or even if you all see "sexting" as something different to flirting, or being sexual with someone.
So: what are your experiences and opinions? Does sexting warrant all this panic and negativity?
"It's not worth doing something unless someone, somewhere, would much rather you weren't doing it." -Terry Pratchett
