Sexual Cyber Violence : Sexting and Revenge Porn [1/2]

Abstract : The term ‘sexting’ was popularized in the early 2000s to refer to the act of sending a sexually explicit text message via cell phone. But it also now refers to the act of sending an erotically or sexually explicit photograph in order to charm one’s partner, or to the act of making a sex tape with him/her. According to the French columnist Maia Mazaurette, ‘‘sexting combines sex and text… but, ironically, the term is no more appropriate. Firstly, because text messages have long been overtaken by instant messaging services such as Facebook’s, but mainly because sexting is no longer a matter of text. We massively sext each other by sending photos”.
