Sexting is when someone sends or receives a sexually explicit text, image or video on their mobile phone, usually in a text message. These can include:
- naked pictures or ‘nudes’
- ‘underwear shots’
- sexual or ‘dirty pics’
- rude text messages or videos
They can be sent from a boyfriend, girlfriend, friend or someone you have met online. You could even receive these types of messages from someone who you do not know. You may have also sent a sexual video, message or picture to someone else.
