    Default Texting Dirty Messages to Girlfriend

    Hey i was wondering if it is legal for me a 14 year old child residing in washington state to text a 13 year old dirt messages with explicit information if she has no problems with the messages. There has been no dirty pictures sent and in the messages we talk about having sex. Please do not judge me. I was just wondering about the legality of this i havnt actually sent any dirty text but i want to and i dont want to get in trouble.

    Thank you very much,

    lawboy

    According to this website
    http://www.geocities.com/ninure/age_of_consent_usa.html
    the age of consent in WA is 16. Stay away from the sexting!

    ya but unless sex actually occurs i think it is still legal. Am i corrct on that? They cant prove sex took place just because we say we want to have sex via text.

    Cut and pasted from
    http://www.ageofconsent.com/washingt...ral%20purposes.

    RCW 9.68A.090 (This is the revised law)
    Communication with minor for immoral purposes.

    A person who communicates with a minor for immoral purposes is guilty of a gross misdemeanor,
    unless that person has previously been convicted under this section or of a felony sexual offense
    under chapter 9.68A, 9A.44, or 9A.64 RCW or of any other felony sexual offense in this or any
    other state, in which case the person is guilty of a class C felony punishable under chapter 9A.20
    RCW.

    [1989 c 32 7; 1986 c 319 2; 1984 c 262 8.]


    In other words - You are too young to be sexting!!!

    Note that the section does not indicate an "adult" but, instead, "a person". As a 14-year-old human, you are "a person". The section does not seem to indicate it's okay if the sender is also a minor.

    Oh, and if you were to do that, you better hope that she does not have a father in her life or parents that read or receive copies of her texts ... oh, you know they can do that on many services, right?

    14!?!?!?!?!?! What?!?!?!?!? Don't even think about sex at that age. Stay in school, study hard, get a good job, find a good woman, then have sex and raise a healthy, happy family. That's it. No sex for you. Sorry to be so upfront, but at 14, sex should NOT be on your mind.

    i know i am to young to be sexting but i am just wondering if it is illegal or not. Yes? No? I know it is illegal to text dirty pictures or video of an underage minor but i was wondering if it is illegal to just text dirty words about sex to a minor. Keep in mind that i am also a minor. For example my girlfriend texted me and said "I wanna **** you so hard". would that text be considered illegal.

    I thought the law was clear - it is illegal. Do not do it.

    Not only that, but you would then likely be registered as a sex offender. Try getting a job or a place to live with that hanging over your head.
