    This study aimed to examine the prevalence of sexting behaviors (sexually explicit messages and/or pictures) among an at-risk sample of early adolescents as well as the associations between sexting behaviors and sexual behaviors, risk-related cognitions, and emotional regulation skills. It also aimed to determine whether differences in risk were associated with text-based versus photo-based sexts.Twenty-two percent of the sample reported having sexted in the past 6 months; sexual messages were endorsed by 17%, sexual messages and photos by 5%. Pictures were endorsed significantly more often by females and Latinos. Sexting of any kind was associated with higher rates of engaging in a variety of sexual behaviors, and sending photos was associated with higher rates of sexual activity than sending text messages only. This article concludes that sexting behavior (both photo and text messages) was not uncommon among middle school youth and co-occurred with sexual behavior. The given data suggest that phone behaviors, even flirtatious messages, may be an indicator of risk. Clinicians, parents, and health programs should discuss sexting with early adolescents.
