CMCH Synopsis: Researchers studied what kinds of teen Internet users were being asked to send sexual pictures of themselves over the Internet.

They found that teens who were black, female, and communicating with adults online were more likely to receive requests for these pictures. Researchers suggest that kids and adults be educated about Internet risks, and that educational materials should be targeted towards high-risk groups. Center on Media and Child Health
