Bradley Hasbro Children’s Research Center Study Finds Teens Who “Sext” Are More Likely to Engage In Other Sexual Behaviors

 Christopher Houck, PhD, a psychologist from the Bradley Hasbro Children’s Research Center recently authored a study linking sexting to an increased likelihood of sexual behaviors in at-risk adolescents. The article, titled “Sexting and Sexual Behavior in At-Risk Adolescents,” has been published online ahead of print in the journal Pediatrics.

The study gathered information from 410 children ages 12 to 14 who were identified as at-risk by school administrators – children who they felt would benefit from additional health education due to behavioral or emotional symptoms. Participants were asked whether they had texted or emailed a sexual picture or message within the last six months, and about their sexual risk behaviors and intentions.
