According to research from NC State University, engaging in sexting doesn’t say anything about someone’s other sexual activity. It doesn’t indicate the number of partners someone might have, whether or not they’ll use protection, or even if they’ll have sex at all, the study shows. But while the researchers said sexting doesn’t pose a public health risk, they also noted the results could be the result of poor research to begin with. Profs.
