The EU funded SPIRTO Project examined the risks related to young people generating and sharing sexual content (or ‘sexting’) in Sweden, Germany and the UK. It used a mixed method approach which included analysis of anonymised archival data to examine the prevalence of self-taken images in the Child Exploitation Image Database (ICSE-DB). Qualitative interviews (N = 51) were also undertaken exploring the experiences of young people who had sent or posted self-produced images when aged under 18. The final phase involved the development and evaluation of short, animated films based on the results of the project.
