Yes, technically it is illegal for minors, it falls under child pornography; although if it is between two teens the same age, they are not going to send you to prison, probably a slap on the hand. You only have to worry if her / his parents see, and if they are up tight enough to call the cops. My suggestion is to make sure you phone, and her / his phone is locked, you should be okay.

people have been arrested for it actually, because if your caught and someone gets the cops involved you can be charged with distribution of child porn, and if you have it on your phone you can be charged with having child porn

I might be being naive but is sexting sending sexual photos of each other

If so then if a person takes a photo then sends it then they have consented and the only way it be illegal if he/her was underage

Yes, it is illegal, and whoever sent someone a picture of themselves can be charged with distribution of child pornography. Yeah, it's ridiculous.

I don't think you need to worry about that, unless the cops are monitoring your phone or something.

Well like many other questions of legality it probably depends where you live. There have been cases brought agains minors on child porn laws in the USA.

It's definitely something that is being enforced more; however, I don't know how true that is -although I'm not doubting it- The cases in the media have been on a much bigger scale of the after effects of a girl -although it DOESN'T have to be female- picture was spread through school, causing the victim to take further actions upon herself. This is just one case and I'm sure there's A LOT more. Cases are difficult to prove and parents want justice but it's very hard. Around here, it's mainly just an agreement that the picture is removed so it's easier for law enforcement and such. There was a huge write up in the paper last year and that's pretty much how it works around here. It may become a problem if a victim is threatened or does do something more extensive where officials feel that an example is needed and pursue the source. Just be aware that is illegal, being underage and COULD result in a felony. The law is tricky and always being bent and skewed.

You should not do it because it is very illegal and a person at my school actually got arrested for doing. It was not a major charge I think he spent a night in jail and got fined like $1000, but nevertheless you should not be doing it.

"Life is like a book, every stage of your life is a chapter, with each ending stage a chapter ends, and with each new start, a chapter begins." I guess what I am trying to get across is write your own book, with the events in your life that you want to live, and not what everyone else is living. Also never hang onto things forever(I can claim this to be very true) because they drag on the chapter and nobody likes to read a very long chapter.

I think he got away easy, distribution of child porn is a felony and will get you landed on the sex offender list FOR LIFE.

America has the worst legal system.

I have not done it, but I feel that if two people want to do it then they should be able to as long as it does not get out to other people.
