High school students who send and receive sexually suggestive or explicit images are more likely to have symptoms of depression, according to a new study from the Education Development Center in Newton, Mass. The preliminary results of the study, announced recently at the American Public Health Association's annual meeting in Washington, D. But the results were especially interesting to Dr. Jill Murray, who runs a private practice in Laguna Niguel, Calif.
Being a teenage girl who has grown up with the internet, social media has been integral to my life, and I am acutely aware of the pressure that exists to engage in sexting — and wanted to share some thoughts on it.
Secondary-school girls report higher levels of both being cyberbullied 22 per cent versus 11 per cent of their male peers and of experiencing cyberbullying happening to people around them. Almost half of teenagers in their final year at school say they have participated in sexting — an activity that increases progressively through each year of second-level education. Sexting is defined as the sharing of sexual text, video, and photographic content nudes using phones, apps, social networks and other technologies. Some 45 per cent of sixth-year pupils have sent a suggestive message and 34 per cent a sext image, while the corresponding figures among first-year pupils are five per cent and four per cent.
