Though sexting is mulled over by a majority of the population as a criminal act or as a sexually prompting behaviour. a team of researchers from the University of Michigan has been claiming the same is risk-free, despite being very common amidst today's generation.
Jose Bauermeister, from the UM School of Public Health, has told that such behaviour of sending sexually overt pictures to each other is not linked in any way to any one's health or offensive behaviours. Even children as small as ten years in age are found involved in sexting.
While the act is not related to any impact on their sexual development, the same is simply unaccepted in case of younger age groups, because of the legality issue.
Enrolling some 3,447 men and women of ages 18 to 24 years in the study, the researchers have found that a teen group was equally out of any risks of sexual acts or even psychological problems as pre-teens or adults. Though, previous studies only focused to look at which age group is tending to do sexting. The latest study has tried and found the act as free of any impact on people's deeds.
However, Jose Bauermeister says, "We have to keep paying attention to how technology influences our lives, including our sexuality and our sexual behavior".
