Sexting infographic shows funny facts about dirty text trends
We've all heard the word sexting. It's sending dirty texts or photos through text messaging. Many of us have even participated or known those who have. In a recent study of 204 college students, it was found that as many as four out of five students engages in sexting.

Most surveyed felt that it's normal, and is the modern version of cybersex, or phone sex. Critics are afraid the consequences will be that minors who have access to cell phones will become involved, and turn into a potential legal issue.

Best Colleges Online has posted this infographic showing some surprising, and interesting facts about college students and sexting:

In that infographic, why is it always the guy that's doing the unwanted sexting? Chicks are more likely to send naked pics of themselves in a text, but it's usually to a guy she's with and not random people. If I had a fat chick sending me naked pics constantly, I'd be on the phone with homeland security!

204 people is not a big sample size.

The college student? Lol, what, they didn't dare ask high schoolers cuz they were afraid of ridiculuously high percentages (hello, hyopcrisy)? Yeah, actually, that bottom two rows of data are more alarming, I'd say, than the issue itself.

Other than that, what a nice heap of oh-so-typical americanisms. You still can't send photos and such in a TEXT message, in case the name isn't revealing enough - those are multimedia messages, but why should the world be aware, really, when any and all photo editors are "photoshop"s, mobile phone is equal to "iphone", searching on the net is equal to "googling", and so on and so on... Yeah, I'd say it's no big deal and I'm just splittin' hairs, but frankly, the English language is way too pervasive and others around the world are just picking up all these technically wrong, coined expressions. Which is just scary.
