Twitter poll says more students sending nude pics

DN Twitter poll shows half of respondents have shared nude photos

Sex has always been a common part of society. But with the increasing amount of technology, it’s increasingly easier to sext — but it can have consequences.

Richard Petts, an associate professor of sociology, said sexting is a social issue that is not surprising among teens and young adults.

“Essentially, this is something that people get swept up and participate in without considering the consequences,” he said.

That’s what happened recently at a high school in Cañon, Colorado. In early November, hundreds of nude photographs were found in the possession of students.

About half of the Colorado high school was involved in the production and sharing of the nude photographs. Similarly, a Twitter poll the Daily News conducted of its followers showed roughly half of those who answered have sent or shared nude photos.
