What is SEXTING? It’s an awkward word to say and the idea is even more disturbing. Sexting is the use of text messaging to send pictures of explicit body parts to others for their viewing. Of course, you can guess that they aren’t sending pictures of their hands, their toes, their knees, or their nose. No, they are sending pictures of their genitalia, full frontals, close-ups, and well, just use your imagination. It seems that more than thumbs are becoming swollen as a result of excessive texting. As nude images and videos are being exchanged, I begin to wonder what could happen if these images ended up in the possession of some pedophile or sex offender. This is just one more reason why parents need to closely monitor their kid’s cell phone use. I’d hate to know that I was paying the bill for my son’s sexting habit.
