"I do worry about who is behind the phones of the people I sext with – obviously if you don't know the person in real life there's no guarantee that they are who they say they are. There is also a big risk around the ages of the girls you contact. Of course you can ask, but there's no proof that they're telling the truth.
"I've never pressured anyone into sexting, and when any girl I've been seeing hasn't been interested I've been fine with that. There are some people though who will put pressure on you. I would say that if someone is pressuring you to do or send something you're not comfortable with, the best thing to do is to cut contact with them.
"If you're still worried then let an adult you trust know what's been happening. Don't keep it to yourself – there's always someone who can help.
"Once someone I was sexting said if I didn't send more pictures they would post those I'd already sent on Facebook. I deleted them as a contact and fortunately didn't hear any more about it after that. It was definitely a close call."
