Three focus groups held with year boys around Nudes or sexting in adult speak to find out about attitudes and perceptions around the sending and sharing of Nude images. Following the success of this, we decided to use focus groups to investigate how Year 11 young men felt about nudes and the sharing of intimate images. All up we held three focus groups. One for each year group. Pizza and snacks had been super popular with past participants , so were provided again.
Having us run the group meant the young men could be asked questions that were relevant and feel comfortable to answer in their own words. Each focus group was recorded and transcribed. The young men were really open with their thoughts and experiences and this honesty was really appreciated. The feedback was incredibly positive and a range of good ideas were put forward from the participants especially around Sex Education.
When asked if there things you said to get a girl ready and happy to send a nude rather than simply asking outright, some found this quite disturbing. They did not think it was fair that the focus and a lot of the time blame or shame was placed on young women by their peers or by adults and that often situations could be quite complex. This was further reinforced by two of the groups who shared an example of a Nudes Instagram that had been shared at their school and how most boys had strong emotional responses to how unfair it was. All groups thought it was important to acknowledge that sometimes sending nude images did not cause issues.
All three focus groups shared a range of examples of witnessing groups of young women showing each other nudes of other young women and then sharing these around the school using Social Media. It was interesting that when asked if they were in a relationship and the other person sent a nude image, would they feel comfortable sharing it even with a mate there was total agreement that they would not.
And there were even a couple of participants who questioned why nudes would be sent in a serious relationship. There was also a feeling that some girls especially younger girls in Year 9 or 10 sent nude images to a of different people. All participants identified that girls were more likely to get a negative response for sharing nude images and that slut shaming was definitely an issue for some girls. There was overall agreement that nudes were not as big of an issue as parents or the media believe it is.
All groups felt that when nudes are being asked for or shared it is with younger teens. It also shows a willingness and openess that could be built from to break down some of the stereotypes, misperceptions and negative norms that contribute to problems and issues.
