Virtual environments and virtual social networks have facilitated the emergence of new forms of communication and interaction, leading to phenomena such as sexting. Although the field of sexting research has made great progress over the past decade, some issues still remain unanswered such as differences between sexting behaviors, those involved, its double sexual standard, if sexting should be considered a risk or not, and how it could affect the psychological health of those involved. Furthermore, little is known about problematic forms of sexting, such as nonconsensual forwarding; sexting under pressure; and their associations with other phenomena such as cyberbullying, bullying, grooming, cybergossip, sexual coercion, or intimate partner violence. More research is also needed to focus on concrete evidence-based practices that show how to prevent and intervene in problematic forms of sexting.
This Special Issue aims to contribute to the scientific community generating a better understanding of what sexting is and how it is related to offline and online phenomena. Thus, manuscripts of a different nature are welcome as long as they contribute to further progress on the practices of sexting, the development of its associated factors, and the dissemination of evidence-based practices that provide us with different methods of prevention and intervention, or on sexting’s related impact on psychological health. We encourage and welcome contributions from all geographical areas and from different disciplines.
