I am posting this partially because it is just funny to read (not that it can’t be a serious issue). I can just imagine the JS ed-board sitting around thinking up intros like this:
You have a boyfriend, and he wants you to prove your love for him by sending him a racy photo. You think about taking a picture.
They seem to want to call sending “racy photos” sexting, I disagree. Deferring to the experts, Urban Dictionary vindicates me:
v: the act of text messaging someone in the hopes of having a sexual encounter with them later; initially casual, transitioning into highly suggestive and even sexually explicit
No mention of photo ops. Seriously though, who is the intended audience here, the underage kids who read Journal Sentinel editorials? Weird.
