There’s no getting away from it, we’re a world of over sharers. Whether popping political opinions in a Twitter thread or Instagramming a pain au chocolate, it’s never been easier to let the world know who you are. Technological advances have revolutionised dating experiences and sex lives too. Why do it is what one has to checkout.
Lack of self esteem
Personally, I believe it’s a sign of lack of self-esteem and, as for this particular point, I think it would be impossible to set a general rule, the lack of said self-esteem can stem from multiple reasons, it is a strictly personal matter, but I think it is safe to say these teens might have a lacking in their life, in their personality, and they think they are filling it with likes, comments and followers.
I think. Because it is very hard for me to put myself in their shoes, I really can’t see why they feel the need to be the object of the sexual desire like being in an adult sex chat rooms, of some perfect stranger somewhere in the world, or how this could possibly bring them happiness, I think it may temporarily anaesthetize the problem, until the next time, but it would not fill that gap. I also think that this shameless behaviour is extremely dangerous.
There are different psychological disorders that warrant those types of behaviours. Sexual acting out comes from the need to be wanted, loved, touched either from lack of, during the primary development years in life 0-3 or from inappropriately being shown affection in early years in life. Either way, a need is met when a person has an audience. The need to be seen! The reaction can be negative or positive as long as it happens.
