UNH Researchers Find that 'Sexting' by Minors Isn’t Very Common

According to a new study by researchers from UNH's Crimes Against Children Research Center (CCRC), one in 10 children ages 10 to 17 has used a cellphone to send or receive sexually suggestive images, but only 1 in 100 has sent images considered graphic enough to violate child pornography laws. 

“Lots of people may be hearing about these cases discovered by schools and parents because they create a furor, but it still involves a very small minority of youth,” said lead author Kimberly Mitchell, research assistant professor of psychology at the CCRC.
