AT&T, Google, and Apple allow people to send 'email to SMS/text messages' with sexually explicit information - I believe it is a violation of the data service/product policies. I am currently addressing my concerns to AT&T, Apple and Google as well here because I need a solution.

I use my phone for work and the barrage of sexually explicit 'emails to text' messages is ridiculous. If there was an app that was triggered by 'email to text/SMS' I would use it, but it appears not to be developed. Because Mozilla is proactive on security and privacy issues, I thought I would ask the community here to develop an app. Here is a suggestion, instead of targeting phone numbers for spam calls develop a script to target email addresses for spam texts.
