Educators, public health authorities and legislators are facing a growing number of young people who self-portrait nude, even during sex, and other minorities capturing these images and distributing them via mobile or internet.
Among their arguments for doing so, young teenagers explain for example:
“I was going out with a guy and wanted a nude picture of me and I send him it."
"I had no boyfriend at the time and I was curious about what other people would think seeing my body ... so I took some photos."
The reason for such concern is that these young people are exposed to overtly sexual content ends up in the hands of strangers, breaking their privacy and vulnerability: their chances of suffering, therefore, cyber bullying, grooming (harassment by adults) or extortion (blackmail if it occurs) increases considerably.
