1 in 10 adults in UK has been caught 'sexting'

By Mamatha

London, July 15 (ANI): One in ten adults in the UK has been caught red-handed sending racy text messages - and got into trouble with their partners as a result, according to a survey.

A survey of 1,097 mobile phone users revealed that people under-25 are the most active 'sexters' and at least 60 percent have been caught red handed doing so.

According to the consumer poll by SellMyMobile.com, both men and women were equally guilty, reports The Sun.

"Text and picture messaging has now become so second nature that people are less cautious, leading to messages frequently going astray," said Keir McConomy, managing director of SellMyMobile.com.

"A key aspect of text messaging is that it allows a more detached method of communication. This was part of its initial popularity and a likely explanation for the large number of people willing to send out explicit content," McConomy added (ANI)
