Teens who sext are likely to be sexually active: USC

Teens who sext are likely to be sexually active: USCSexting does seem to prompt more sexual action, at any rate for children, which is troubling.

USC this week uncovered a study that discovered center school scholars who had reported getting a sext were six times more inclined to be sexually inclined.

That, as well as tweens who sent more than 100 writings for every day, paying little heed to whether the messages were sexual in nature, were more prone to be sexually active also:

Scientists at the USC School of Social Work looked at more than 1,300 L. A. center school scholars ages 10 to 15 who tuned in the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's Youth Risk Behavior Survey. The aftereffects of their work was distributed in the July issue of the journal Pediatrics.

They found that "adolescent youngsters" were four times more prone to be sexually included in the event that they had reported sending writings.

LGBT scholars were nine times more inclined to sext, USC said.

One in five scholars with cellphones said they had accepted a sext and five percent said they had sent one, as per the study.
