People sharing intimate or rude pictures as a way of flirting with their partner (or potential partners) is nothing new – However, what’s changed is the speed and ease with which they can be shared. Most of the time, these intimate pictures are shared between consenting partners – it can be fun, exciting and feel a bit naughty. People wouldn’t do it if it wasn’t a bit of a turn on and let’s be honest, you wouldn’t send them if you didn’t trust the other person now, would you? Indeed, there are many images shared which never leave the intended recipient.
The trouble is, once you press send that photo or film clip is completely out of your control.
