sexting : Gay & Black Glossary
- Electronically sending a nude photo of yourself to another. The catch is, the
images never stay private. If you can’t keep the picture
private, it is pretty silly to expect other people to. It is very hard to withdraw an
image once it has gone public. Often various forms of blackmail use those publicly
available images. Young people are astonished when the cops charge them with
distributing child pornography. This is obviously not what the laws were originally
intended for, but police tend to seek any excuse or means to punish.
