In her analysis of the responses, Johnstonbaugh found that the odds were four times higher for women than men to say that they sent sexually explicit images of themselves in order to prevent the recipient from losing interest or to prevent the recipient from looking at images of others.
This may point to a persistent sexual double standard that could be disempowering for women, Johnstonbaugh said. However, Johnstonbaugh discovered that the odds also were four times higher for women than men to say that they sent sexually explicit images as a way to feel empowered, and women were twice as likely as men to say they sent such images to boost their confidence. It was not uncommon for female respondents to select both empowering and disempowering reasons for sexting, showing just how complex their motivations can be, Johnstonbaugh said.
Further analysis is needed to better understand other possible motivations for sexting, as well as which motivations might be more common for men, Johnstonbaugh said. She said she hopes her findings help provide a more nuanced understanding of sexting for scholars, educators and policymakers interested in reducing harmful sexting practices. She studies sex and gender, sexualities, and digital technologies under associate professor of sociology Louise Roth.
The research Johnstonbaugh presented at the ASA Annual Meeting will contribute to her dissertation on sexting practices among college students.

One writer wrote "Dr. Jekel And Mr. Yours is a "proceed-with-caution-personality that I should never have engaged with, even over a blog site. Not by a long shot. Though I only have your name to go on, I've formed a composit picture in my mind about you.

You likely can "get" any "normal" guy you set your sights on. You did well in school, but your "voice" was drowned out by family members. You should have no trouble attracting friends and be sucessful at life. Two supposedly rational people, who theoretically appreciate the knowledge avaible on this site.
It's like they told me years ago, that there was a genuine difference between the behavior of high school students and College students. I should have known that it makes no difference. Common Sickies. Awakened People. Anywhere you go. A great guru I know, said: "There is no response to hostility and none need be given. Your long history of posting highly irrelevant comments and insistence on discussing high profile murders with sensational detail that are absolutely out of context to whatever article you are responding too, along with your public postings of your supposed virginity and other personal details to include your age, your supposed religious beliefs combined with your recent attempt to extract personal information about me while describing how you picture me physically why is someone born when Eisenhower was president trying to extract personal information when you believe I am in the year age range?
If you can't get figure out by now where hostility might be coming from - then you are a total idiot.
Email him on his private address drdouble yahoo. What about sending pictures to your long-time partner while they are away in sexually active partners? Would that fall under the anxious or avoiding types or is that just for newly romantic couples? I work at a customer service counter where at least 10 lost smartphones get turned in everyday, and most are not password protected.
Sex is best kept in the bedroom or in some sort of private place. Putting it on a smartphone makes it a possible public statement. And yes, I have heard my share of stories from girls and guys who accidentally sexted the wrong person Accidents can occur!!!
Sexting: 'Why I sent semi-naked photo of myself'
There's nothing wrong with having images of using a gun, etc, on the phone and those are instruments of death. We could work toward changing the attitude around sex to one that's a little less taboo and a little more positive. It feels good, it's a natural thing to do, it brings us closer, it's good exercise, etc. The human body is also beautiful. The "keep it in the bedroom" attitude is why we're all so ashamed of it all if you ask me.
Accidental text? Why would it be an issue? It's funny and if it's something we all do anyway then who cares? PG movie can have a tonne of violence but sex? Not so much. That's just messed up.
