Law & Society
Consideration of the child protection, crime prevention, and criminal law response to youths’ production and distribution of digital sexual imagery, the limits of the emerging construction of consensual sexting as ‘self-exploitation’ and the relationship of this rhetoric to mounting fears about the so-called ‘sexualization of culture’. Conclusion: criminal law is too blunt a tool to address teenage sexting, consensual or otherwise.
