Sexting has also become common in our generation and with the help of our phones, images can be send out fast and spread like a wildfire. The essay, “Why Kids Sext” by Hanna Rosin discussed about the problems regarding sexting. In my opinion, I don’t think that consensual underage sexting and pressured or coercive sexting should be treated in the same way. Consensual underage sexting is sexting with permission.

In the essay, Orenstein includes a harsh statistic about sexting, which states: “…39 percent of teens had sent or posted sexually suggestive messages (or “sexts”).” (p. 450) I believe that this percentage is so high because sexting has become another way for men to objectify women. During my time in high school, a group of boys decided to release a plethora of naked pictures of girl students to the student body. It only took a few hours for it to spread. People found the picture to be humorous and tried to guess who the picture belonged to; some of them guessed correctly.

Makes them gain lower self-esteem, thinking the way they’re living life or the things they’re doing aren’t enough. “There's a reason that teenagers in particular are prone to the feverish pursuit of valuation via social media. Prinstein says it's because the wide variety of regions in the brain that seek and deliver social rewards, including the part of the striatum called the nucleus accumbens, become supercharged at the adolescent transition. “( ) Social Rewards is common in teens, it’s similar to the feeling of being liked by everyone.
They may go on sites that promote cheating or social media sites like instagram and snapchat where they can send pictures and messages to another person and eventually their partner or significant other will find out that they are cheating and therefore terminates the marriage or relationship. This is a psychological behavior impacted by the internet because to compensate for being in a negative relationship they go on social media sites and they try to make up for what the relationship lacks.
