I was interviewed by a producer from Univision Network this past Wednesday on the topic of “sexting” between teenagers. Sexting is the act of sending sexually explicit messages or photographs, primarily between mobile phones. According to the producer from Univision, the interview will air on the nationally televised Univision show “Aqui y Ahora”, and possibly ABC.
