She says the photo might have been an invitation of sorts, but that she found it weird and "kind of creepy. Although there are no known Canadian statistics, a recent Pew Research Center study suggests 15 per cent of U. Other studies have put the figures much higher. In a of high-profile U. One year-old in Florida, for example, is now a registered sex offender after getting into an argument with his year-old girlfriend and sending a naked picture of her to dozens of her friends and family members. Even if they aren't being charged for it, some Canadian teens do seem to be sexting: Sarah Hobbs, canadian nude teens director of Planned Parenthood Toronto, says they are asking questions about what to do when they receive a sext; Lyba Spring, a sexual health promoter for Toronto Public Health, says the subject is raised regularly in teen workshops and classes.

Technically, some sexting cases could fall within Canada's child pornography provisions, says Jane Bailey, a professor in the faculty of law at the University of Ottawa. But she says Canadian crown attorneys are taking a more reserved approach than some in the U. Inan year-old in Alberta was charged with distribution and possession of child pornography after showing other people some naked pictures ed to him by a year-old girl, but he pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of corrupting morals. As far as Bailey knows, that's the only Canadian case of something that could be considered sexting — although in the term itself probably didn't exist.

On both sides of the border, however, sexy texts have sparked fierce discussion about teenage sexuality and the law in this technological age. Should sexting be treated as criminal behaviour or just innocent self-exploration, the modern-day equivalent of Spin the Bottle? Or should we just be worried that our porn-laden culture is putting young people in precarious positions? Reputation is a key issue. Like many teens, Green and her friend Atika Irvine, also 17, say it isn't really a big deal if a guy and girl in a relationship send each other sexy photos.

But when teens send sexy photos of themselves to people they are not dating as a kind of overture or invitation, people talk. Alexander McKay, research coordinator at the Sex Information and Education Council of Canada, says young people need to realize that there could be social or even legal implications to texting. York University professor Peter Cumming would not disagree with that, but he does believe the act of sexting itself isn't as egregious as everyone makes to out to be. He says sending naked canadian nude teens nearly naked photos as a flirtation or a joke can be as innocent as the sexy child's play of the s, when games such as Spin the Bottle or playing "doctor" were popular.

A spring presentation Cumming gave on the subject at a Carleton University conference made it onto Fox News, where Bill O'Reilly labelled him a "nut" and "the enemy. Cumming says his words were taken out of context, canadian nude teens still holds his ground. He says the act itself is relatively benign, even it the outcome might not be. Some are worried about the gender politics behind sexting, like Shannon Boodram, a local year-old who recently published her first book, Laid. She says it's usually young women who send sexts, not men — except, perhaps, as encouragement.

Last summer, a guy she was chatting with online wanted her to send him naked photos of herself, and tried to persuade her with some sexy photos of his own. He was so persistent.

If you ask Boodram, sexting is a pornographic way for girls to give their power away. Bailey is also more concerned about women than men when it comes to sexting.
