  • All qualitative, focus group data is with teens 12 to 18.
  • Focus group data – all with 12 to 18 year olds. Because of IRB restrictions, sexting questions were administered silently on open-ended paper surveys to teens during the focus group. Girls narratives here are generally about pressure, regret.
  • All qualitative data is with teens ages 12 to 18. Boys’ narratives from focus group are more about mutuality – not as negative as girls. Girl’s narrative about boys’ sexting is also less negative than girls’ narratives about their own sharing of images. Reproduces patterns we see through out society about boys, girls and adolescent sexuality.

  • 12. Teen Sexting Scenarios
    • Between two romantic partners, as a part of, instead of, or as a prelude to sex – never leaves couple
    • Between two romantic partners – but shared with others
    • Between two people where at least one would like to be in a relationship – shows interest
  • 13.
    • Sexually suggestive images sent to the privacy of the phone have become a form of relationship currency.
    •  
    • “ When I was about 14-15 years old, I received/sent these types of pictures. Boys usually ask for them or start that type of conversation. My boyfriend, or someone I really liked asked for them. And I felt like if I didn’t do it, they wouldn’t continue to talk to me. At the time, it was no big deal. But now looking back it was definitely inappropriate and over the line.” – senior girl
    •  
    • Another older high school girl wrote about the pressure on girls to share such images:
    •  
    • “ I haven’t, but most of the girls who have are usually pressured by a guy that they like or want to like them, or their boyfriends. It’s probably more common than what it seems because most people who get involved in this were probably pressured by someone to do it.” – senior girl
    2010
  • 14.
    • In focus groups, we mostly heard of boys sending sexts within romantic relationships:
    • “ [I’ve sexted] a few times, just between my girlfriend and I. Just my girlfriend sending pictures of herself to me and me sending pictures of myself to her.” – 9 th -10 th grade boy
    • “ Yes, I do. I only do it with my girlfriend b/c we have already been sexually active with each other,” wrote one older high school age boy. “It’s not really a big deal.” 11 th -12 th grade boy
    • Though at least one girl told of boys sending sexts outside a relationship:
    • “ If a guy wants to hookup with you, he’ll send a pictures of his private parts or a naked picture of him[self]. It happens about 10 times a month. It’s mostly the guys I date or just a guy that…really wants to hook up with you. I’m not really that type of person [who sends sexts], but I have friends who have.” – 11 th -12 th grade girl
