What's The French Word For Sexting? (Yes, There Is One)

The French have got their own word for 'sexting' and it definitely sounds, er, sexier.

Vice's Motherboard site confirmed that the L'Academie Francaise - France's language authority - has recently coined the word 'textopornographie.' yep, we can see how it translates.


It's not the only new word to join the French language, either. Videoagression? That's their phrase for 'happy slapping'. Lovely.

So - if you're ever in France and someone starts talking textopornographie and videoagression - you know what they're on about.
