Sexting has been promoted further by several direct messaging applications that are available on smartphones.The difference between using these applications and traditional texting is that content is transmitted over the Internet or a data plan, allowing anyone with Internet access to participate.
Fifteen percent of these teens also claimed to have received sexually explicit photos.
A widely cited 2011 study indicated the previously reported prevalence was exaggerated.
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.
In 2013, it was found that sexting is often used to enhance the relationship and sexual satisfaction in a romantic partnership.
Sexting thus can be considered a "behaviour that ties into sexuality and the subsequent level of relationship satisfaction experienced by both partners".
However, while technically accurate, the 2.5% figure is actually rather misleading.
As seen in Table 1 of their publication, Mitchell et al.
Kik and Whats App appeal to teens because of the anonymity of the applications.
Snapchat appeals to teens because it allows users to send photos for a maximum of ten seconds before they self-destruct.
Even though users believe their photos on Snapchat for example will go away in seconds, it is easy to save them through other photo capturing technology, third party applications, or simple screenshots.
These applications claim no responsibility for explicit messages or photos that are saved.
The study had a small sample size, so more research needs to be done surrounding sexting and motivation, but it is clear that sexting is a phenomenon that is not constrained to simply unattached individuals looking for fun; it is used by those in intimate relationships to increase feelings of intimacy and closeness one's partner.
