The AARP Monthly magazine recently updated , advising tech-competent seniors to try sexting as a way to spice up the over-50 love life--complete with a “Sexting 101” section. Most sexting is, by itself, consensual, and intended to be innocuous.For example, individuals who are dating might send each other nude pictures.They can talk about what might happen and talking to them is confidential.
This could be your mum, dad, carer or a school teacher.
Because, however, the pictures involved in sexting are digital, it is easy for recipients to distribute them in ways that the original sender never intended or imagined.
Far too common is the case where jilted former lovers have sent nude pictures of their exes after a bad break-up to classmates, friends, coworkers, and relatives.
Your school will have ways of dealing with these sorts of problems and can confiscate mobiles if they believe they have sexual images on them.
Reporting an image or video If you’re under 18 and an indecent or nude pic of you is posted online, that's illegal. You can contact the website directly yourself or make a report about what’s happened to the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF), who will speak to the website to try and remove it. Making a report can be scary, but our counsellors are here to support you.
