Teens should be educated about safer sexting not just abstinence, report says

The Guardian, Monday 31 October 2016

Teenagers should be educated on how to sext more safely and be respectful of each other rather than be persuaded by educational materials to abstain from sexting, a new report says.

The paper, written by Yfoundations youth health sector support officer Jessie Hunt, is a first in Australian public health policy. It says resources aimed at educating teenagers about sexting are outdated and perpetuate problematic notions surrounding gender.
