ABSTRACT“Sexting” means both sending or receiving messages, pictures or videos with sexually explicit contents via internet or cell phone, either with or without explicit consent of the person involved. These images are spread almost instantly and universally, with undesired consequences most of the time. This article deals with two teenagers seen in a private clinic in México City specialized in adolescent patients; we analyze their evolution and treatment. We review the clinical course and management of this social phenomenon, that appears to be increasing, especially within middle and upper class adolescents. Its consequences are emphasized. Finally, relevant considerations about the preventive role that both family and school can have are presented.
