[digitalspy] A survey has discovered that one in five people in Britain have sent a sex text to the wrong person.
Under-25s are the most likely to make mistakes while 'sexting', as it has become known, with 43% having sent one to the wrong person.
"Text and picture messaging has now become so second nature that people are less cautious, leading to messages frequently going astray," the commissioner of the survey said.
"A key aspect of text messaging is that it allows a more detached method of communication. This was part of its initial popularity and a likely explanation for the large number of people willing to send out explicit content."
