University of Michigan researchers looked at the sexting behavior of 3,447 men and women ages 18-24 in the first study to connect sexting with a behavioural outcome.

Previous studies on sexting have focused on demographics - in other words, who is doing the sexting, not how sexting impacts the health of the participants.

The researchers found that nearly half of the study respondents participated in sexting.

Most people who reported receiving sexts also reported sending them, which suggests that sexting is reciprocal and likely happens between romantic partners.

The researchers asked study participants about the number of sexual partners with whom they have had unprotected sex.
The participants who sexted did not report riskier sexual behavior than those who didn't. Nor did they report more depression, anxiety or low self-esteem, said study co-author Jose Bauermeister.

The negative perception of sexting is mostly drawn from stories involving pre-teens and teenagers, but the University of Michigan study group was considerably older, said co-author Debbie Gordon-Messer.

'For younger age groups, legality is an issue,' she said. 'They are also in a very different place in their sexual development.'

Professor Bauermeister said the sexting research is a very important piece of understanding how technology impacts sexuality and health.

'We have to keep paying attention to how technology influences our lives, including our sexuality and our sexual behaviour,' he said.

The paper will appear in an upcoming edition of the Journal of Adolescent Health.
