Intimate Acts Can Have Dire Consequences by Miss Know It All

There are certain intimate acts that should never come to light. They should be for you and your mate’s eyes only.  But what happens when your most private videos or pictures are suddenly exposed for the whole world to see? It can wreck havoc on your personal, family and business life for years to come. Once a loving relationship is over, sometimes anger and retribution can rear its ugly head.

Don’t ever assume that explicit photos or videos taken by your lover will remain locked in a vault, never to be seen by anyone. With the height of the digital age, it seems to be a free for all when it comes to uploading explicit images by jilted lovers. Even if the relationship ended on a good note, there is no guarantee that your image will not show up on some sleazy site.

This trend is known as Revenge Porn. People will upload images taken either recently or eons ago on sites, which are promoting and profiting from this type of conduct at the victim’s expense. Women are primarily marred by this act, especially younger females since they are more likely to be knowledgeable and involved with the workings of modern technology, posting pictures of themselves on social networks to either gratify their boyfriends or just for the fun of it.

Protecting yourself against future humiliation is extremely important. No matter how much you adore your mate, avoid recording sexual acts or taking photos while engaging in sex or in any other intimate situations. Today you are madly in love, but tomorrow you might be mad at each other. There is no way to know if a person will use your image for lewd purposes.

Presently, New Jersey is the only state that has a law against uploading an image on the Internet without the other person’s consent.

Never e-mail or upload sexually explicit photos to online dating sites, social networks or chat rooms. Someone can easily forward those images, which can land into the wrong hands or possibly into your employer’s inbox.

Recording sex acts secretly and without the other party’s permission is illegal. If you suspect that an individual has videotaped you without your consent, you can call the police and have law enforcement go to his or her place and confiscate that tape.

If someone has uploaded your image without your authorization, consult a lawyer; he or she can write a cease and desist letter to the offender and to the site profiting from your picture, demanding that the image be removed or legal actions will follow.   

Be careful what you upload on the Internet. Remember, once your image is in cyberspace, it is there forever.
