The danger of Sexting

In the TV3 programme “Planta Baixa”, Marc Masip, director of the Desconect@, has come to explain to us the dangers caused by sexting and, in general, the new technologies and the consequences it can have on teenagers. Sèxting is the sending of erotic or sexual content made by oneself through social networks or whatsapp. It is a very common act among young people and teenagers and 1 out of every 3 children between 13 and 16 years old, practices sèxting.

Marc Masip points out that there is a lack of many subjects to teach in schools, including technology education and sex education. The 13 year olds are not prepared to have mobile or electronic devices, and there is a lack of education on the part of parents and schools.
