    15 Percent of Teens 'Sext'

    By Ker Than

    posted: 16 December 2009 05:35 pm ET

    What do you get when you give horny, tech-savvy kids cell phones? Something else for parents to worry about.

    About 15 percent of American teenagers have received nude or semi-nude photos of their peers on their cell phones in a practice called "sexting," according to a new Pew Internet and American Life survey.

    The nationally representative phone and written survey of 800 teens (ages 12 to 17, actually) also found that 4 percent of teens are sext message senders.

    Girls are just as likely as boys to sext, and older teens and teens who pay for their own cell phone are most likely of all to engage in the naughty cell phone practice, the survey found.

    Relationship currency

    Teens in the survey said sext messages have become a form of "relationship currency" among their generation, Amanda Lenhart, Pew Senior Research specialist and author of the report, said in a statement.

    "These images are shared as a part of or instead of sexual activity, or as a way of starting or maintaining a relationship with a significant other," she added.

    "And they are also passed along to friends for their entertainment value, as a joke or for fun."

    For some teens, sexting has become a part of the American dating ritual. Gone are the days of sending flowers to your crush. Instead, some guys sext naked pictures of themselves or their "private parts" to girls. "It happens about 10 times a month," one high school girl wrote.

    The survey also confirmed some of parents' worse fears about sexting. Another high school girl wrote: "Sometimes people will get into fights with their exes, and so they will send the nudes as blackmail ..."

    In addition, some teens admitted to feeling pressured to send sexually explicit photos of themselves.

    Attitudes to sexting varied amongst the teens themselves. Some viewed it as a safer alternative to real life sex, while others worried about the legality of the practice and the potential for public release of the images.

    Solutions?

    So what is a parent to do? Marilyn Maxwell, a pediatrician at Saint Louis University who was not involved in the study, said the key thing is for parents to talk to their children.

    "Sometimes parents are afraid to tell their kids what they want from them because they feel hypocritical because of the things they did as a young person," said Maxwell, who is a contributing author of the book "Questions Kids Ask about Sex: Honest Answers for Every Age."

    Maxwell's advice: Get over it. "You have to get over feeling hypocritical because you want the best for your child," she said.

    Parents should also establish ground rules before giving their child a cell phone. "Parents need to let their kids know up front that they have the right to read their text messages, emails, and other electronic communications if they suspect something is wrong," Maxwell said.

    Finally, Maxwell said, parents should not think that they can relax their vigil once their child grows up.

    "You may not need to take [your teen] to the bathroom and wipe their behind, but you need to be there."

    Yes, I've seen people who like to "sext", what a silly term, who like to exchange sexual messages and have SMS sex. Even adult ones.
    Can we get more degeneration than this? What happened to the normal way of doing things?

    I have seriously never gotten the point of "sexting" and have never engaged in the practice. Seriously, what has it come to ... o tempora, o mores!

    If it's sent to your secret crush, it's a low, lazy and degenerate form of trying to woo them. If you actually have a parnter, then you don't need pictures - except perhaps when you go away, and in that instance you should bloody well have the guts to take them yourself. I mean, if you're with a semi-sensible person it's not like they're going to bite.

    I certainly haven't ever taken pictures of my private parts to send them around the world. I don't think much of this "tradition",besides it's a way of making sure that pictures of my genitals don't go around the world. If random people really care to see me naked, they can accompany me to the sauna.

    What's even worse though is if so-called "Nationalists" act all serious and then put naked pictures of themselves up into a secret adult section. But that's another story, the Germans will know what I mean.

    It's natural for teens to be curious and explore their sexuality and bodies. I think sexting is preferable to sexual activity per se, at young ages, when they might not be ready for real sex.

    However I think many teens engage in this practice thanks to peer pressure. When everyone else does it, and you're the "virgin" (in terms of "sextuality" ), it might feel awkward and unpopular especially if others laugh at your prudeness.

    It's amazing how many "nationalists" engage in this vulgar and degenerate behavior. I know some of them use the nationalist boards to date, but then at least send the pictures to the date only, not to the entire crowd. Then again, I also see people with avatars of themselves with pink, bright red or even green hair who call themselves nazis.

    It's alarming that it's happening to children, 12 years old and such. What adults do isn't my concern. But anyway if you'd let people see you naked in the sauna without being prude, it's not that much different from posting your picture on the adult sections. You're in both cases, essentially exposing yourself and your nudity to strangers.

    I don't know if its degenerate behavior, but perhaps it is stupid. Anything you send online or via airwaves can be spied on, reproduced etc. I wouldn't post any pictures of myself online that I wouldn't be comfortable with the world seeing, nor would I send it to anyone.

    To consider additionally, the media is filled with nudity and semi-nudity, the dress style changed, so we have to put ourselves in the shoes of inexperienced teens, who grow up in a different world from the one decades ago, and to whom normality means a totally different thing.

    Indeed. Some of them call themselves "proud and moral NS" but then go around with pictures that'd be rejected by most top-shelf magazines for being too vulgar. It's especially harsh on some forums, some posters of whom you thought highly lose all that renown by the pictures they post.

    One wouldn't complain if it was artistic nudity. Artistic nudity always existed, be it in statues, pictures, paintings or photographs; the artful representation of the nude state of the human physique can be aesthetic, and would not immediately have to rank as degenerate. Artful nudity was not even frowned upon in the Third Reich, the pictures I'm refering to are well known.

    However, some of the pictures they present are so degenerate. Webcam shots of their genitalia, or ones where they pierce their nipple with a Deutscher Mutterorden in a pornographic manner is something any proud Nationalist should clearly be above. Pornography is to 90% a Jewish business founded on Jewish morals, that alone should be enough for any self-conscious Nationalist to not engage in such degenerate practices.

    Except that one is a normal practice, as people are generally naked in the Sauna. One doesn't look at others' bodies in the Sauna, it's not intended to be sexual. It is natural nudity, which isn't any worse than artful nudity.

    Taking pornographic pictures from all thinkable angles and present them in a manner meant to be erotic and arousing and sharing them with the general public is something very different. It's being intrusive upon other people.
