Electronic surveys were administered via an audio—computer-assisted self-interview ge sext laptop computers. Sexts were also frequently shared with unintended recipients. Black males and females reported similar prevalence estimates for sexting behaviors. However, they were more likely than Hispanic males to participate in some sexting behaviors. The of this study indicate that sexting is prevalent among ethnic minority youth.
However, more research is needed to understand the specific context and circumstances around which sexting occurs in this population. There may be legal consequences for youth who send or receive nude or semi-nude pictures or videos, but the condition under which arrest occurs varies. Aside from the potential legal consequences of sexting, more studies are needed to determine if sexting impacts other behaviors and health outcomes among youth and adults and, if so, what is the direction of the impact.
Some researchers have speculated that forwarding sexual media to unintended recipients could have an adverse psychosocial impact on the individual shown in the picture or video, 7 which is supported by a recent cross-sectional report linking sexting with suicidal ideation. Because Temple et al. In a study of predominantly Hispanic young women, however, Ferguson 11 found no association between sexting and most high-risk sexual behaviors.
Although more research is needed to determine the effects of sexting, the first step in any public health inquiry is to understand the scope and prevalence of a potential health problem. Some data exist on the prevalence of sexting among youth in general. However, prevalence data for ethnic minority youth specifically are scarce.
In this study, we specifically examined the prevalence and patterns of sexting among a sample of black and Hispanic high school students from a large, urban school district in southeast Texas. Data were collected from tenth graders who participated in the final follow-up assessment of an HIV, STD, and pregnancy prevention randomized controlled trial during fall and spring Research staff recruited seventh graders from classes in which the majority of students were enrolled either physical education or homeroom.
Student assent was obtained from all participants. Surveys were administered via an audio—computer-assisted self-interview on laptop computers by trained data collectors. All statistical analyses were conducted with SAS 9. Descriptive statistics were obtained. Prevalence estimates of the proportion of students involved in different combinations of sexting behaviors were also calculated. Alpha level was set at 0. Thus, 1, students were included in the analyses. The mean age was There were no other ificant differences in Internet or cell phone use among the sub-groups.
Table 1. Fewer students reported posting sexts online. Across almost all sexting behaviors, black males and females had similar participation rates. Black males and females, however, were more likely than Hispanic males to participate in some sexting behaviors. Table 2. Note: Statistical ificance is read within each ge sext column. Estimates ge sext the same superscripts or those in which one estimate has a superscript and the other one does not are not statistically different. Fifty percent of sexting youth ge sext sending or receiving nude or semi-nude pictures or videos and sexually suggestive text-only messages.
Table 3. For example, other studies limited their sample to predominantly households with landline phones 5 or to youth with cell phones. Fewer studies have examined the prevalence of this behavior. It is possible that these unplanned exchanges could have emotional consequences for the original sender, 7 especially if that individual subsequently felt bullied. A similar pattern for sending sexual media was observed for Hispanic and black youth in a study. Additionally, black males and females were more likely to post and send, respectively, sexual media than Hispanic males.
These could potentially be explained by the findings from another study of ethnic minority youth in which the inverse association between unfavorable expectancies i. Our findings could also be explained by the fact that black youth enter puberty earlier 28 and are more likely to report first sex before age 13 compared with Hispanic youth. Finally, half of sexting youth had sent and received sexually suggestive text-only messages and nude or semi-nude pictures or videos.
To our knowledge, this overlap in sexting behavior has not been ly reported. Furthermore, similar to another study, 24 many sexting youth reported sending and receiving sexts. For example, Collins et al. This study has some limitations, which include the use of general screening questions about sexting and none about intent e.
Additionally, although the school district from which students were sampled was representative of other large, urban school districts, care should be taken in generalizing these. Future studies should use ethnically diverse samples to make such comparisons. This response rate, however, is typical of other school-based studies with low-income 30 or minority youth. Lastly, it is possible that differences in the prevalence of cell phone and Internet use between Hispanic ge sext and black females could have contributed to the higher estimates of some sexting behaviors among black females.
Future analyses should control for Internet and cell phone use in their analyses this was beyond the scope of the current study, which was to determine overall prevalence estimates. It should be noted, however, that Hispanic females, who reported the lowest prevalence of sexting behaviors, actually reported higher cell phone use than Hispanic males. This study indicates that sexting is prevalent among ethnic minority youth, and is one of only a few studies to present sexting prevalence data in this understudied population.
Additional studies are needed to determine the context and circumstances around which sexting occurs in this population. Furthermore, prospective analyses are needed to determine the association between sexting, sociodemographic factors, and behavioral and health outcomes.
