Sexting addiction is exponentially on the rise with the growth of mobile devices!
In August 2012, the word sexting was listed for the first time in Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary.
It defines sexting as: the sending of sexually explicit messages or images by cell phone.
Sexting generally includes the use of a digital device to send, receive, or forward sexually explicit messages, photographs, or images, primarily between mobile phones, of oneself to others.
Even underage school children are victims of the sexting phenomena. An example is 14 year old sofia, who was persuaded by a boy to send a naked photo of herself.
She said in a documentary titled Porn Whats the Harm, “He asked me basically for a naked image of myself…because he was so consistent with asking, I eventually gave in…He showed his friends…they send it to their friends…so forth and so forth…by Wednesday all the local schools had it (the naked image)…I felt completely stripped of my value…I felt like I was completely accessible…Its like people were having intimate relationships with me and I wasn’t even engaged with them because they seen me in that (naked image)…They called me a slut, camera whore…”
Why has sexting taken the world by storm?
Sexting is a multi billion dollar industry. In 2016, Google reportedly offered Snap $30 billion for acquisition, which Snap turned down! Snap’s 2018 revenue was a whooping US$1.18 billion. So there is no doubt that behind the rise of the 21st century sexting phenomena, there is are powerful multi billion dollar industry. Besides Snapchat, there are several sexting apps on the market like Tinder, Plenty of Fish, Kaboom, Confide, Dust, Match, Zoosk, etc.
Sexting is driving Internet sex addiction; i.e A sexual addiction characterized by virtual Internet sexual activity that causes serious negative consequences to one’s physical, mental, social, and/or financial well-being.
Have you been sexting? Are you addicted to sexting? Me too. I was addicted to porn and sexting, fornication, adultery and all manner of wickedness, but the LORD JESUS SAVED me and JESUS wants to SAVE YOU too, if only you REPENT.
It is written:
“The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him.
But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.
At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?”
“No one, sir,” she said.
“Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”
