Now you can download porn  directly to your iPhone. Anyone can watch porn any where, any place, and any time and you (or your kids) can be subjected to watching it if you happen to be trapped next to a viewer – like on an airplane.  According to a recent article, one in five iPhone users in the UK have used their devices to download porn.

Is your teen sexting?

According to this msnbc article many teens are sexting on their cell phones and on-line.  Sexting means sending any kind of sexually explicit photos or videos of oneself or another or sexual chatting either on-line or via cell phone. It seems that teens have a sense of invincibility when it comes to the dangers of risk-taking because the reward center of their brains have formed, but the prefrontal areas that manage good judgment have not.

Many states have serious consequences for sending or receiving sexual photos.  Supervising your teens and talking to them directly about the consequences of these behaviors is important to help them stay safe.  For more information on sexting and to read the msnbc article go to:
