Your Nudes Are Probably Being Shared More Often Than You Think
They don't always stay stay private.
If you’ve ever got caught in the moment during a sexting session and sent a nude or ever so slightly sexy pic, you may be surprised to hear that more than just the intended recipient might have seen it.
SKYN condoms recently conducted a survey, in which they discovered 1 in 3 people have share a sexual photo that they were sent without the sender’s permission.
Over 3,000 men and women between the ages of 18 and 34 were asked by AMP Agency on behalf of LifeStyles and SKYN Condoms, and were all sexually active within the three months prior to the survey which took place in 2016.
It illustrates just how important it is to remember that just because you’re sending it privately, really doesn’t mean it’s going to stay that way.
"Sexting can be seen as the modern day love letter, but when nude photos enter the equation, it can veer from harmless flirting to viral sharing," sex expert Emily Morse said in a press release.
"All millennials should be aware that any pictures they send out could end up in the wrong hands, and this data drives that point home."
And while it isn’t technically a crime to share a nude you’ve been sent, it could be considered one if it’s revenge porn.
