Researchers at the University of New Hampshire surveyed 1,560 children and caregivers, reporting that only 2.5 percent of respondents had sent, received or created sexual pictures distributed via cell phone in the previous year.

Perhaps shedding light on the over-reporting of earlier studies, the researchers found that the figure rose to 9.6% when the definition was broadened from images prosecutable as child pornography to any suggestive image, not necessarily nude ones.

Additionally, 39% of teens and 59% of young adults had sent sexually explicit text messages.

A widely cited 2011 study indicated the previously reported prevalence was exaggerated.

has received wide international media attention for calling into question the findings reported by the University of New Hampshire researchers.

Young adults use the medium of the text message much more than any other new media to transmit messages of a sexual nature.

These applications claim no responsibility for explicit messages or photos that are saved.

Snapchat's privacy policy on sexting has evolved to include sending content over new smartphone applications because of their appealing features such as the anonymity or temporary elements.

Thus, instead of increasing intimacy in these types of relationships, sexting may act as a buffer for physical intimacy.

In a 2008 survey of 1,280 teenagers and young adults of both sexes sponsored by The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, 20% of teens (13-20) and 33% of young adults (20-26) had sent nude or semi-nude photographs of themselves electronically.
