'Sexual Intercourse' - 14 News Result(s)
Scientists surveyed nearly 1, high school students, mostly sophomores, in Houston. The results, published in the journal Pediatrics, revealed that 60 percent of the students had been asked to text a nude photo, and 28 percent said they had done it. Boys and girls were equally likely to send photos, but boys were more likely to ask for them. The students were polled again a year later, and those who reported sexting in the first survey — regardless of their sexual activity up to that point — were 32 percent more likely to report having had intercourse the following year, compared to their non-sexting counterparts. Interestingly, actual sex was more common than sexting among the respondents. These rates are higher than the national averages for teen intercourse: 41 percent for sophomores and 54 percent for juniors, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Jeff Temple, associate professor at the University of Texas Medical Branch and lead author of the study, said teens who sexted were not more likely to report risky sexual behavior, like having unprotected intercourse or multiple partners or using drugs or alcohol before sex.

Sexting is sending, receiving, or forwarding sexually explicit messages, photographs, or images, primarily between mobile phones, of oneself to others. It may also include the use of a computer or any digital device. The first published use of the term sexting was in a article in the Australian Sunday Telegraph Magazine. Sexting has become more common with the rise in camera phones and smartphones with Internet access, that can be used to send explicit photographs as well as messages. Young adults use the medium of the text message much more than any other new media to transmit messages of a sexual nature,  and teenagers who have unlimited text messaging plans are more likely to receive sexually explicit texts. As a result of sexting being a relatively recent practice, ethics are still being established by both those who engage in it and those who create legislation based on this concept. Whether sexting is seen as a positive or negative experience typically rests on the basis of whether or not consent was given to share the images. Nevertheless, Australian laws currently view unders as being unable to give consent to sexting, even if they meet the legal age for sexual consent.
