Almost a third of secondary school students have received a sexually explicit picture they didn't ask for.

While over half have been asked to send a naked picture of themselves, according to to a new study.

This study from DCU's National Anti-Bullying Research and Resource Centre gathered data from over 800 15 to 18 year olds from schools all over the country.

Over half of secondary school students have been 'frequently' asked to send sexually explicit images.

While almost a third have received sexually explicit images they didn't ask for.

The study found that over 76% of teenagers said they have never sent an explicit picture with almost 17% saying they had done so frequently.

The study found that adolescents who received sexts showed more emotional problems compared to all other groups.
