What does sext mean?

Sexually explicit message

A slang word that refers to a sexually explicit message, whether it consists of words or pictures.

Sext combines "sex" and "text." The term can also be used as a verb instead of a noun, similar to how "text" is used. Sexts are commonly sent by teenagers, and adults too, using mobile phones because of privacy. The term may also appear as "sexted," which is the past tense of sext.
