Sexting may also include the use of a computer or any digital device.
The term was first popularized early in the 21st century and is a portmanteau of sex and texting, where the latter is meant in the wide sense of sending a text possibly with images.
In August 2012, the word sexting was listed for the first time in Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary.
