Let's talk about sex(ting), baby! Specifically, this post will address sexting, or sending nude photos over text and social media like Snapchat. People often sext because they're in a long distance relationship or because they find it fun and exciting - plus, there's no risk of spreading STIs or accidental pregnancy. However, that doesn't mean sexting should be taken lightly. Like any other sexual activity, if you decide to try sexting it's important to know how to do it safely, responsibly, and respectfully. Keep in mind that sexting is NEVER 100% safe - once you send out photos, you can't get them back. Planned Parenthood has a great article on some of the risks of sending and receiving nude photos.
