Survey: Teens Sharing Nude Images Online, a clip from The Today Show on a survey released by the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy and Cosmogirl.com reports, "22 percent of all teen girls — and 11 percent of teen girls ages 13-16 years old — say they have electronically sent, or posted online, nude or semi-nude images of themselves."
"One-third (33 percent) of teen boys and one-quarter (25 percent) of teen girls say they have had nude/semi-nude images — originally meant to be private — shared with them," the article reports.
Why would girls and boys do this?
I'll do anything for you. Like me. Please like me! This will make him like me! I'll do anything to make him love me back! This will really make him love me.
Does that sound familiar to anyone?
Also, it would be ideal if a human being's sense of consequence developed before age 35. (Maybe that's just me.)
Thank God there was no Facebook, MySpace or the ability to send photos via cell phone when I was a teen or in my 20s.
R.B. if you're out there . . . Please tell me you hit delete when you got married.
