In some instances, parents will be at risk of Criminal charges if their child’s phone is in their name While the legal risks of sexting have loomed large in media and crime control coverage as well as academic responses to the practice since 2008 11, also present in these warnings are references to the intimate and financial risks that sexting may pose to minors’, and particularly to girls’, reputations and future prospects [10,27].
Further, a person sending a photo or video, even of themselves, can be charged with Distributing Child Pornography.In this article, we argue that these actors have erred in their construction of youths’ risqué imagery as inherently risky and thus governable.We propose that anti-sexting frameworks—which conflate consensual and nonconsensual sexting and which equate both with negative risks that purportedly outweigh the value and benefits of the practice—rely on a calculus that is fundamentally flawed.
