Why do young people sext?
- Feel like 'everyone else is doing it' even if they are not
- Worry about being seen as 'not sexy' or 'frigid' so go along with it even though they feel uncomfortable
- Feel under pressure to sext as a way of 'proving' their sexuality
- Want someone's approval
- Feel proud of their body and want to share it with others
- Be in love with the person and trust them completely
- Feel harassed, threatened or bullied into sending pictures
