TEEN VOGUE: "How to Sext: The Best Tips and Tricks" for Sexting Nude Teen Photos & Videos

Per Wikipedia: "Teen Vogue is a former US print magazine and current online publication launched in 2003 as a sister publication to Vogue, targeted at teenage girls."

And per Condé Nast - Teen Vogue's publisher: "Teen Vogue is the young person’s guide to saving the world. We aim to educate, enlighten and empower our [teen] audience to create a more inclusive environment (both on-and offline) by amplifying the voices of the unheard, telling stories that normally go untold, and providing resources for [female] teens looking to make a tangible impact in their communities."

Thus, Teen Vogue is targeted at and is a resource for nymphets. And one resource Teen Vogue provides for nymphets is how to properly sext, which Oxford defines as: "A sexually explicit photograph or message sent via mobile phone."

Interestingly, we came upon Lily Puckett's article "How to Sext: The Best Tips and Tricks" (APRIL 13, 2017) on Teen Vogue's Snapchat channel. Puckett relates "7 things you might not have known about sexting, directly from the experts at Sexting AF":

1. Sexting isn’t sexting if it’s not consensual: "Sending unsolicited pictures or graphic descriptions of your most private parts is exactly like sharing those parts in real life: don’t do it unless you've been explicitly invited to do it."

2. Sexting pictures might be new, but sexting isn't: "It’s an ancient art to engage in, passed down through generations and generations of noble, dignified, and significantly aroused individuals."

3. A sext sent to you is only meant for you: "According to a study released last year, one in four Americans share sexts they receive without permission from the original [often teen] sender."

4. Send nudes the right way (or don’t): "[...] protect yourself always by keeping your face — the most identifiable part of your body — out of the picture."

5. If you're sexting someone new, don't assume what worked with your last partner will work now: Social influencer Daniel Saynt points out that molding sexts to a specific partner is important [...] everyone deserves your A-game when it comes to sexting, whatever that means to you."

6. A lot of people are sexting for no reason: "[...] sexting is probably a lot more fun if both you and your partner are at a point in your day when you can really get into it [...]"

7. Sexting should make you feel good: "Sending someone details about what you want to do to them and getting back even more details about what they want to do to you should be fun, easy, and ultimately joyful." 

After a Google search, we found Brittney McNamara's Teen Vogue article "Sexting Not a Health Risk, Study Shows: "Don't panic." (MAY 24, 2017). McNamara shared: "According to research from North Carolina State University, engaging in sexting [...] does NOT pose a public health risk [...]" McNamara went on to write: "If you're aware of the risks and send intimate messages to someone you trust, that's completely your choice."

Nona Willis Aronowitz was asked the following question in her Teen Vogue article "When Is It Safe to Send a Partner Nude Photos?" (MAY 2, 2019):

Q: I want to send my partner nudes, but I'm nervous they might get into the wrong hands. I don't want to be embarrassed by a private picture getting out, but I'm into the idea of sharing sexy pics. What should I do?

Aronowitz began answering the question by sharing: "When I was 19, I took a picture of my breasts in the privacy of my college dorm room." However, Aronowitz didn't share the "masturbatory" photo until a year later. Aronowitz went on to relate that: "In 2014, Cosmopolitan found that that 89% of their survey respondents [admitted to sexting]." Consequently, Aronowitz advised nymphets: "Get very familiar with yourself. Pose in the mirror, caress your silhouette, know your naked angles." Aronowitz ended the article by exclaiming: "Happy sexting!"

Lastly, Emily Lindin opined in her Teen Vogue article "Sexting: What You Need to Know About Sending NudesJULY 15, 2016: "That’s because, like physical sex, there’s nothing inherently wrong with exchanging nudes. Feeling good about your body, documenting it in a photo, and inviting someone to participate in that by sharing the photo with them is not morally abhorrent."

Teen Vogue condones teen sexting (i.e., teens texting nude photos and/or videos); however, the unwritten view is that teen sexting is only (openly) condoned when it's done between teens and not between nymphets and nympholepts. But people who are against teens sexting men are missing the point. It's not the age of the sexter that matters, it's sexting that matters. And Orthodox Jews and Muslims may agree that sexting should only be done between married couples - of any age.
