Sexting, or sexually explicit photo or video sharing among teens, is a practice where teens send sexually explicit photos or videos to each other via messaging apps like Snapchat. Sexting provides teens a means of exploring sexuality or intimacy while it can also be used as an abusive form of harassment against someone. Parents should talk with their kids about safe messaging app usage as well as ways they can detect signs of sexting or bullying behavior.
As soon as Snapchat emerged, there was widespread outrage that its ephemeral messages promoted teenage sexting. Users can capture video or photos using one of many filters before sending to friends – these messages only last a few seconds before vanish from memory; however there are ways around this that allow people to save them for later.
Many underaged teen porn stars use Snapchat to sell nudes. While some are well-known models still underage, others have an insatiable sex drive and love showing off their boobs to horny snapchat followers. Some even go as far as using bondage, spacer bars, hemp rope or ball gags to satisfy their sexual fantasies.
Billerica Police in Massachusetts have issued a warning to parents that someone has been blackmailing middle and high school-age girls on Snapchat by demanding nude photos from them, with threats that if they didn’t comply, lewd images would be posted online or given out to family members.
