An Environmental Scan of Online Resources Related to Sexting
Sexting, the sending and receiving of sexual messages through technological devices like cell phones, is on the rise among youth. While there are debates about whether sexting is a normal form of sexual expression or a risky behaviour, education and support around sexting may help reduce negative consequences associated with sexting for youth. This report shares information about current, evidence-based, online resources focused on sexting and its impacts on youth. The information gathered through this environmental scan may be helpful to parents/guardians, youth, and educators seeking materials to educate themselves or the youth in their lives about sexting.
