Feed Science Daily: One In 25 Online Youth Asked To Send Sexual Pictures Of Themselves (sciencedaily.com)

One in 25 youth who use the Internet got a request to transmit a sexual picture of themselves during the course of the year, according to a new study. This development represents a new peril for young people created by the fusion of digital photography and the Internet, say the authors of the study. According to the study, very few of those surveyed actually complied with the requests, but given the millions of youth online, thousands of children may potentially be sending such pictures.
