I know when you're all in the hot, burning flush of new love the first thing you want to do is have your new man whip out his thing -- his camera, people, his camera! Yes, and then take some pics of you all sprawled out in the hot, burning flush of lust on the bed. It seems like such a good idea at the time. You, him, a bottle of Chianti, a tube of love lotion, some lingerie -- and a camera! And now you can always remember how in luuuuurv you were. But too many times these photos end up, oh, somewhere you'd prefer they not be. Like on the Internet. Or maybe even a prostitution site on the Internet. And then the next thing you know, the cops are banging on your door. And suddenly those pics don't seem so fun afterall. Boo.
A 24-year-old Russian immigrant accuses her ex-boyfriend, a Brooklyn dentist twice her age (but of course he is!) for snapping sexy photos of her in her skivs and then allegedly putting up a fake prostitution profile of her on an online "escort" site. She then claims he sent the profile to the immigration agents, told them she was an illegal, and the next thing you know, they were at her door demanding to know if she was a call girl. (For the record, she says she's a student. So there.)
She's now suing her ex for $16 million. The dentist denies it all. But seriously, everyone, how many times do we have to hear these stories about sexytimes photos and videos going public? Holy Hulk Hogan, if he couldn't stop it, neither can you.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: If you simply must gift your man with some awesome shots of your muff, have a professional photographer do them. Present your sweetie with a non-digital portfolio of your privates. That way, if you and your man break up, you can take the portfolio with you. And hope he didn't have it scanned.
I'd heard of people using compromising photos of their ex on Facebook, but setting up a fake hooker account is a new one on me. Remember, once photos are online, it's virtually impossible to get them off. So just don't take it off. Or, if you do, do it without a camera around. Just because no one took pictures of you ready to rumble in your Victoria's Secret wear doesn't mean it didn't happen.
Have you ever let anyone take sexy photos of you?
