Under Tennessee law, if you are not more than four years older than her and she freely consents, yes you can legally engage in sexual relations. I do not know the answer under Mississippi law.

As for sending pictures of "body parts," (and I am going to assume you mean pictures of "areas normally covered by a swim suit") other than that being a really stupid idea, the answer is "NO" under Tennessee law. Worst, since the transmission would probably be across a state line and therefore involve "interstate communications" you run the risk of serious federal charges.
