Because it’s apparently very important to find the scientific reason why today’s whippersnappers just won’t stop sexting each other, Belgian researchers have determined there’s a link between watching music videos and sending sexy messages.

The study, published in the journal Cyberpsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking, set out to determine whether there was a link, amongst adolescents, between sexting and the consumption of sexualized media—specifically music videos and porn. Read More

A 17-year-old Manassas City teen was charged with two child pornography-related felonies after his 15-year-old girlfriend’s mother reported him for sexting, the Washington Post reports. Now, the teen, whose name was withheld by the Post, is facing a search warrant that would allow law enforcement officials to take him to a hospital, give him an erection-inducing needle, and photograph his penis.

You might have heard by now that people can be finicky when it comes to sexting. Ladies don’t actually love dick pics, for example, and sending one could actually land you in the clink if you’re in Kenya.

Lucky for phallic photo fanatics, you can now hire a robot to stand in for the human mate you scared away with your last drunken booty text. It’s called Sext Adventure, and it costs $5. Read More
