Sext Education
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.
