LOUISA COUNTY, VA – Parents constantly warn their teens: send a “sext” and it’ll follow you forever. But a researcher at Harvard is telling parents to chill out; that sexting is not only a part of sexual development. It’s healthy?!

What’s that? The noise of millions of teenage boys picking up their phones? Guys, pay attention!

Okay. We know this dude’s from Harvard; but tell that to parents who catch their darling daughters baring it all for their boyfriends over Snapchat.

In Virginia this month, more than 1,000 photos were discovered by cops on Instagram and the photos were not from Coachella. Surprisingly, the police didn’t think it was so healthy: more than 100 teenagers now face sex offender charges.
