College OTR calls it the "word of the week," based on a story of two Seattle cheerleaders suspended (up to a year) for showing up nude on cell phones around school (they're suing -- in part because of the sexist double standard of male abettors going unpunished).  However, based on these stats, the "sexting" portmanteau is more like a word of the year.  Urban Dictionary defines it:

v: the act of text messaging someone in the hopes of having a sexual encounter with them later

Along with this disaster, the perils of sexting are a popular theme lately.
