I think we all agree that sending anyone racy photos of yourself -- even if you think you're super, duper in love -- is a bad idea. I know you think you're never going to break up and that you're going to be together until the end of time, but listen, you might not. I said might! Relax! Sheesh, someone's sensitive about their relationship.
No, but, on the other hand, if you want to take scantily-clad pics of yourself for, ah, yourself -- why not? It's your camera, your computer, your life. And hey, it might be nice to have some photos of yourself looking hot and sexy when you're old and wrinkly. But then there's always the chance that some yahoo -- IE, an ex -- is going to break into your house, log onto your computer, steal said sexy photos you took, and post them online. The odds are slim, but hey, it happens!
James Aldous, 22, was pissed that his former girlfriend, Cassie Fearnley, had a new boyfriend. So instead of tucking into his local pub and drinking his problems away like a normal person, he opted for breaking into her home, removing topless photos of Cassie from her personal computer, and posting them onto four different networking websites. Classy!
"Revenge posting" seems to be a thing these days -- a thing where jilted lovers post salacious photos of their exes onto websites for all to see. There are even sites in and of themselves dedicated to this entire practice. It's disgusting, unbelievably violating, and super illegal. (Aldous was given an 18-week suspended prison sentence.) Also, it makes you (the poster) look like a complete ass who's still in love with someone who wants nothing to do with them.
So, I don't know, guys. Maybe it's time to hang up the ol' camera? Do away with the tittie pics and thong shots? You may love the way you look -- and it's a damn shame you can't do this in peace -- but, sadly, there are too many dirtbags in the world who are ruining the fun for everyone.
Have you ever taken a sexy photo of yourself on your phone?
