Another question, this is kinda a run over from my other post "what if you caught your teen having sex?".

co worker told me later that evening after he kicked the boy out of daughters bedroom. He found boyfriends phone laying on table in house. He must have dropped it in his big hurry to get out of the house. That evening Co worker and Wife couldnt help themselves so they had a look at his phone. Sure enough naked pictures of their daughter, and naked pictures of boyfriend, and naked pictures of them together were on the phone.

Is this becomming a norm among teens now? admitedly all this new technology makes it so easy these days.

I think so. Not every teen couple is doing it, but I would guess 70% of the teen population is. I think as you hear more stories about "teen boy being charged for child pornograhy through sexting" or "teenage girl commits suicide over embarrassment over nude pics" that will discourage it a lot more. It has for me at least. As far as sexting as in like phone sex, except in text, I don't know if that's exactly a crime when under 18. To answer your question though, yes, I do think it is becoming more the norm and with technology like you said it really is simple. Surprisingly most parents don't check their kids' phones. You hear parents keeping up on their facebooks but not often the "I want to check your phone" action.

It is definitely more common - maybe not pictures of them having sex, but certainly random naked pictures that they send to others. In our community it seems to be a 7th - 10th grade thing. I think as the kids get into their later teen years they start to appreciate the impact that something so impulsive has on their life.

Yes because technology is getting cheaper and cameras are becoming better it is normal. My little niece says that and web camming for each other is also quasi normal.
