Adult sex photos
This suggests a consent issue of people receiving photos without asking for them.
This is enhanced with Snapchat, as the person receiving snapchats will not be aware of the contents until they open it. In a 2011 study, 54% of the sample had sent explicit pictures or videos to their partners at least once, and ⅓ of their sample had engaged in such activities occasionally.
The difference between using these applications and traditional texting is that content is transmitted over the Internet or a data plan, allowing anyone with Internet access to participate.
Snapchat appeals to teens because it allows users to send photos for a maximum of ten seconds before they self-destruct.
Nevertheless, Australian laws currently view under-18s as being unable to give consent to sexting, even if they meet the legal age for sexual consent.
Sexting has been promoted further by several direct messaging applications that are available on smartphones.
In 2013, it was found that sexting is often used to enhance the relationship and sexual satisfaction in a romantic partnership.

Strassberg, Mc Kinnon, et al.Perhaps shedding light on the over-reporting of earlier studies, the researchers found that the figure rose to 9.6% when the definition was broadened from images prosecutable as child pornography to any suggestive image, not necessarily nude ones.
