It could also be that he took them without her knowledge. That's what my ex would do. He sent then to his 70 year old bootleg cab driver for free rides. His excuse when I found out was "I didn't think you would mind." It's disgusting and disrespectful and I hope OP broke it off with him but not before deleting every photo of herself from every phone, camera, tablet, computer, etc. he might have.
there is no privacy when it comes to sending anything, especially nudes! A basic rule of thumb is, if you dont want your father looking at it, don't take the photo! A boyfriend is as changeable as your bed sheets, domt trust him with something so private. I gotta go a little bit ydi, but I still feel for ya.
@99 @101 You realize that though a nude photograph can be taken in seconds, it can take a lifetime to live down, can destroy a public reputation, potentially ruin any career opportunity, not to mention the danger of having your intimate parts exposed to all of the world's creepers, and the fact that someone you trusted betrayed you.
@109 so it's acceptable when it's a guy getting back at his girlfriend for his computer, but not when its a girl for her boyfriend giving other people nude pictures of her? What is different about this scenario to you? I agree that guy was partially justified, but at least it's not something that has the potential to hurt him for the rest of his life.
@130 so getting back every single possible copy of the photos is easily done within seconds? You seem not to have an idea of the vast size of the WORLD WIDE web plus don't forget the deep web as well. Once something is made public, it has the possibility of replicating and spreading faster than you could imagine.
That's not true. If she took the photos herself she can actually sue him for violating copyright law (because for some insane reason leaking someone else's nude photos isn't a specific crime in itself in some states). Moreover, if the photos are posted for the public and she is told to pay money to take them down, that's a form of extortion. The guy who ran one of the largest websites of revenge porn thankfully just went in for 12 years for this.
Much as I hate people suggesting sueing for everything there probably is some sort of case she would have. Certainly in the UK distributing porn without the permission of the people in them is illegal - it's called revenge porn. Even if it is not specifically illegal in the US there would almost certainly be some sort of sexual harassment case to be made. Also in a lot of cases verbal contracts can be taken as binding and she could argue that the relationship was some sort of contract which involved trust which in turn involves not sharing porn of each other. I'm not saying she should absolutely take him to court but if it is serious enough and she feels he deserves to be punished for this then I would think a good lawyer could successfully argue her case. People have won with far more sketchier cases.
I also want to know how the other person knew he had the pictures? It sounds like it's the first thing he thought to offer up for an exchange and that he's the one that mentioned it. And as someone else mentioned, he could've taken a naked picture off the internet and sent that instead. There's just so many things wrong about this situation and what the boyfriend did!
Trade his computer for something nice
You should be the only rare piece he needs
