Adolescent women feel intense pressure to send sexual images to men, but they lack the tools to cope with their concerns and the potential consequences, according to new research. Sexting, or sending nude or semi-nude sexually suggestive images or messages to others, is a reality for an estimated 15 to 25 percent of teens growing up today. Though some research points to sexting as a potentially low-risk way to explore sexuality, it also is associated with increased risk of ostracism, depression, and suicide.

Sexting or "sex texting" is sending or getting sexually explicit or suggestive images, messages, or video on a smartphone or through the Internet. Most teens have various ways to get online, Smartphones, tablets, and laptops all can be used in private. It's very easy for teens to create and share personal photos and videos of themselves without their parents knowing about it. Girls may sext as a joke, as a way of getting attention, or because of peer pressure or pressure from guys. Guys sometimes blame "pressure from friends. And teens get some backup for that when lewd celebrity pictures and videos go mainstream. Instead of ruined careers or humiliation, the consequences are often greater fame and reality TV shows. Teens should understand that messages, pictures, or videos sent via the Internet or smartphones are never truly private or anonymous.

I know kids and a house will make our time together challenging, but for as long as I have known him his family is the most important thing and he makes sure to keep a strong relationships between them. He sealed my husband and I on our wedding day. Drives me a bit crazy. But marriages don't last if you have to hold back ugly, sarcastic comments when your partner attends religious services or defends religious beliefs. Marriage is simply not an option to me there. I hate to say it, but if you are serious, go explore her world. It would be foolish to acquiesce a Mormon girl to drink coffee. It won't be easy with the lower salary but it will be better than the alternative. The independent work is just as important as the work we do as a couple. You might start drinking to ease the pain.
