The Real Risks of Sexting

Sexting is when people send and receive sexual messages or images over some form of technology (cell phone, webcam, app or website). Once you hit “Send”, you lose all control over that image. The image you sent could end up posted on social media or any other public site and be shared with thousands of people in minutes.



If you receive a sexually explicit image and choose to share that image with others you could be charged under the Criminal Code of Canada.
