Sexting has been all over the news lately for some freakish reason - well, not really freakish, but child pornography reasons, which I'll address in another blog. Like with sex tapes, sexting can get unwanted results such as your boyfriend dumping you and passing your pictures to all his friends to show off how much of a slut you are, or you girlfriend pissed off because you cheated on you and dedicates a website to your microscopic penis.

I don't mind sexting so much that as long as it is done between two consenting adults who know the consequences of the act. Since the moment we could take pictures, man wanted nothing more to photograph the nude body - even paintings were done and some of them are rather pornographic. However, technology has grown to a point where it can turn a simple perv to an expert peeper - you name it, micro cameras, nanny cams, and the most recently attacked, camera phones, which allow you to take a more discrete photo of a person unwillingly. This, of course, is against the law. And I have no problem with that.

What I do have a problem is charging a consenting adult who agreed to have his/her photo taken and then the jack ass who took it distributing it any which way. Unless you know for sure, and you can't, that that was the model's intention. That's returning to the bedroom, and what goes on in the bedroom between consenting adults so be kept out of the rule books. Period!
