20%

Percentage of teens surveyed at a private high school in the southwest U.S. who said they had ever sent a sexually explicit image of themselves on a cell phone. Nearly twice as many said they’d received a sexually explicit photo; of those receiving a “sext,” more than 25% had forwarded the image to others. A third of teens who sexted did so despite the fact that they knew there could be serious legal or other consequences if they got caught sending or receiving nude images of minors.
