Sexting is the act of sending or receiving sexually suggestive or explicit messages or images via some form of technology. This short  tip sheet defines sexting, highlights different forms of sexting, and discusses how sexting is relevant to anti-violence agencies, partnerships  and communities.

NNEDV Safety Net Project created this piece to assist agencies, partnerships, and communities (including U.S. Department of Justice Office of Violence Against Women grantees) with understanding sexting issues and considering how they can best help victims of sexting.
