Forget about passing notes in study hall. Central Ohio school officials say teens are now using their cell phones to send nude pictures of themselves.

Mark Raiff, a principal at Columbus' Olentangy Liberty High School says the situations have left him speechless. He says the teens don't see anything wrong with sharing pictures or video of themselves by cell phones.

Detective Brian Marvin of the FBI Cyber Crime Task Force says he has seen everything from a strip tease to explicit sex sent by cell phone. He says the content sometimes makes its way to Internet Web sites for others to see.

Experts say teens often don't understand the dangers. They suggest parents pay attention to their kids' phones.
