Sexting is the act of sending sexually suggestive electronic messages, mainly between mobile phones.[1] The term became popular during the early 21st century. The term is a portmanteau of sex and texting.

The term was first used in print in 2005 in Australia.[2] A naked picture that you make of yourself is sometimes called a nelfie, a mix of the words naked and selfie.[3]
