NWoTD - Sexting

Today's new word has probably been coined already since its so obvious but I'm publishing it as my own for now. Growing out of a recent story and legal proceedings arising from underage teenagers taking sexually explicit photos of themselves and texting them to their current boyfriends or girlfriends. The possession of these images is illegal as the "models" are under the age of 18. Things get more difficult when the kids break up and the dumpee puts those images on their MySpace page or somewhere online.

But all of that is beyond the original new word of the day.

Sexting - the transmission of sexually oriented text messages including pictures.
