CB Centre for Sexual Health, Executive Director, Cathy Penney
Sexting was all the talk in Cape Breton last week.
Regional police sent out stern letters to area high schools.
They say at least 50 young people have been texting and posting explicit photos.
And they are warning students - - if the photos involve anyone under the age of 18, it's considered child pornography.
Cathy Penney says teaching kids about the dangers of "sexting" needs to be part of a wider community effort.
As a sex educator, she spends a lot of time in schools, talking to kids about sex.
Penney is the executive director of the Cape Breton Centre for Sexual Health.
She spoke with the CBC's Wendy Martin.

Christmas Dinner Theatre
The Christmas Tree Farmers Ball
November 27th - 29th, December 4th - 6th, 11, & 12
You are invited to the annual Christmas tree gala and dinner to hear local Christmas tree farmers discuss the industry. The big box stores offer trees in all shapes, colours, and sizes. But who wants a tree that's aluminum, pink and plays "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer"? Not these proud farmers. They like to get their trees the old fashioned way, getting an axe and a thermos full of cocoa and heading deep into the woods to find that perfect pine! Join us at the savoy theatre for this hilarious show as we set out to prove that nothing beats the smell of a real Christmas tree!
Date(s): Nov 27, 28, 29, Dec 4th - 6th, 11, & 12
Tickets(s): $45 - includes show, dinner, and taxes (not gratuities)
