The Naked Truth About Sending Nude Photos

Being playful when you’re texting or messaging someone is fun. But, sometimes you might think about sending a nude picture, or maybe your partner will ask for one. Here are a few reasons why you should keep your clothes on and your camera turned off.

You’re Trafficking Child Pornography

Whether the pictures are of you or someone else, if you’re a minor you’re tracking child pornography, which is a very serious charge. Not only can you be charged for trafficking, but your boyfriend can be charged for possessing the pictures.

Other People WILL See Them

Information like pictures and text travel from person to person through Internet or data packets that can get intercepted along the way. Not only that, but business owners and employees have access to anything sent through their systems. For example, Snapchat, Facebook, or even your cell provider could see anything you send if they wanted to.

Don’t think for one second that chat conversations, pictures, and things like that haven’t been subpoenaed from them by the courts before. They have, and they’ve been provided.

They Could Get Shared

Once the picture leaves your phone you no longer have any control over it. From there it follows the lines of cyberspace to whoever you sent it to, and whoever they send it to. Hopefully, the person you sent it to will keep it personal. But they could post it anywhere online, email it to their friends, or even text it out.

They Might Not Have the Desired Effect

Maybe for you it’s all about the tease and sexting to try to keep your partner interested until your relationship progresses. The thing is, you have no way of knowing whether your partner is collecting pictures from other people as well. While you might trust them completely, this is your body and your life we’re talking about.

Sending nudes is never a good idea, even if you’re in a committed relationship. But, if you’re just dating someone or trying to get their attention, keep your fingers off the "send" button!

Break Up Retaliations Happen

Sometimes when people are going through a tough break up they go out of their way to hurt the other person by posting bad things about them all over Facebook, or spreading rumors.

If they had ammunition like naked pictures to hold over your head, they could post them everywhere, or use them to force you to stay in the relationship. Even the nicest person in the world can act out when their feelings are hurt.

Hacking Happens

Even if your partner doesn’t share it, that doesn’t mean your picture will remain private. People hack into things all the time, and your picture could wind up being circulated without you or your partner’s knowledge. Don’t run the risk of becoming a poster child for why you should never send a nude.

A Moment of Fun Can Haunt You for a Lifetime

Once something gets shared on the Internet, it’s there forever. Taking a nude picture of yourself might have seemed like a fun idea at the time, but if your picture gets shared or posted anywhere, you’ll carry that weight on your shoulders for a lifetime.

Employers sometimes Google potential employees and you don’t want the selfies you once thought were private popping up in the search results. Having nude pictures circulating around could affect future job prospects, relationships, and many other aspects of your life.

It’s okay to act playful and flirty, but be smart about it. Flirt all you want through messages or in person. Just hang on to your dignity, keep your clothes on, and keep your camera safely tucked away. Remember, you’re the only you, you’ve got.

Termario.D  - How is it child pornography if its consensual to both parties involved? Also, if i for example send a picture to my partner while we are of the same age, how is it moral for anyone to be charged. To put it nicely.. Your facts are a little farfetched. But thats just my view. - Jun 14 2017 - Like
