Technology places significant opportunities to get caught up. Sending obscene photos of your body is not only disrespecting yourself it is giving someone who you think you can always trust dirt on you in the future. If you think about how many times you have sent an inappropriate photo or thought about it, how many of you think of the consequences after the screen reads message sent? Everyone knows that a picture is worth a thousand words. Do you really think sending a provocative picture to someone who you are sexually involved with or a significant other is going to make them want you even more than before? If so maybe you should re evaluate who you have chosen to be intimate with in any way.
Sexting can also be portrayed through words not just pictures. You can talk sexually to someone over the phone or in a text, but how do you know its only between the two of you. Ya boy or ya girl could be right over their shoulder reading every word, and you wonder why word and rumors travel so quickly. This could all be prevented if you don't let your actions or words speak over your common sense.
If you don't fully trust who you are trusting so much of yourself that is the first sign of it being a bad idea. Even if you trust the person multiply things could take place: you might get into a fight and revenge comes into play, someone could get a hold of their phone, or your so called friends could put out your business, and next thing you know you go from being the hero to a villain. Be cautious of your decisions because cyber bullying especially involving sexting can become an outbreak.
