Title The rise of young men sexting: What's normal and what's not Media name/outlet New Zealand Herald Country/Territory Australia Date 9/03/20 Description Sexting is a normalised part of contemporary young lives. Because of this, learning the "skills" of appropriate and respectful sexting is something that should be part of the sex education curriculum in schools.
Rather than trying to tell students to simply abstain from sexting, we should support them to do it in respectful ways.
Translating the findings of this research into tangible strategies in sex education is an important task for educators. By assisting young people to "sext" in appropriate ways, for instance by identifying alternative ways of establishing consent and avoiding "victim-blaming", we can take one step towards destigmatising the practice.
