While sexting usually refers to sending nude photographs, it can also include sending words alone that are meant to be sexually explicit. With the rise in electronic communication, sexting has become more common and can have serious consequences in certain situations. The main defense to any charge involving sexting is consent, especially when it involves a case with two adults. This defense would be stronger if there is written evidence supporting it. For example, if there is a text messaging from the victim that provides permission to the other person to distribute the images, the consent defense can be raised.
