More than half of all college students, a recent survey reveals, indulge in sexting.
Assistant professors Sue K. Adams and Tiffani S. Kisler in the Department of Human Development and Family Studies, University of Rhode Island, led the study.
In their survey of 204 college students conducted last spring, they found that 56 percent of the students had received sexually suggestive images, and 78 percent had received sexually suggestive messages.
Two-thirds of the group had sent sexually suggestive messages.
While most of the messages were sent to a relationship partner, 10 percent were sent without consent of the person who originally sent the message.
