Sexting does not pose health threat: study

Sexting does not pose health threat: study
- They removed studies that did not look at the relationship between sexting and behaviour, as well as any studies that did not include clearly defined quantitative measures of sexting or sexual behaviour.
This process left them with only 15 studies that looked at whether there was any link between sexting and sexual activity, unprotected sex, or the number of sexual partners.
Researchers found that there was a weak relationship between sexting and all of those categories. However, it was not possible to tell if sexting actually influenced behaviour at all.
In fact, there’s not even an agreed-upon definition for sexting, researchers said.
“There are two take-home messages here,” said Andrew Binder, an associate professor at NC State.
“First is that sexting does not appear to pose a public health threat to America’s youth,” said Binder.
