Sex & Technology

We use cell phones and the Internet to communicate with each other on a regular basis.  It is important to remember that what you say, do, text, tweet, post or email to other people tells about the kind of person you are.  That means you need to be careful what you say on do through technology. How you act online and through cell phones is the same as when you talk with someone in person.  Information you share through technology can sometimes turn on you.  Things you think are private can get passed around whether or not you want it to be.  It is important to keep yourself safe from people who might hurt you online.
