As young people move from early to late adolescence, they develop both physically and psychologically, which also includes their sexual development. During this time, teens experience and explore different feelings and behaviours as aspects of their sexual growth. At this time, teenagers receive different information from parents, peers, social media and the internet about sex. How young people approach their sexual development is personal, and so understanding their own sexuality and making informed decisions about their behaviours is essential for healthy sexual development into adulthood Frayser,

A mother who sent photographs and video of her two naked daughters to their dance teacher has told an inquiry that she feared he would destroy their dancing prospects. From February , the woman's two daughters, who were as young as nine at the time, did up to 40 hours of dance classes a week, and Davies and the mother began sending online messages to each other. After her own aspirations to be a dancer never materialised, she said she felt excited for her daughters' futures. The woman wept as she told the hearing she sent the first inappropriate video of her daughter, who was 10 at the time, to Davies in Her eldest daughter was "only in a G-string, mucking around with a feather boa".

The aim of the present study was to a assess the reliability with which indecent images of children IIOC are classified as being of an indecent versus nonindecent nature, and b examine in detail the decision-making process engaged in by law enforcement personnel who undertake the difficult task of identifying and classifying IIOC as per the current legislative offense categories. Interrater reliability analyses revealed both considerable agreement and disagreement across coders, which were followed up with two focus groups involving the four employees. Using thematic analysis, a number of factors apparent within IIOC were revealed to make the determination of youthfulness and indecency significantly more challenging for coders, with most relating to the developmental stage of the victim and the ambiguity of the context of an image. In the United Kingdom, Section of the Criminal Justice Act Home Office, criminalizes the possession of an indecent photograph or pseudophotograph i. These technologies further facilitate the home-based production of IIOC through the use of scanners and digital or web cameras.
