Revenge Porn

What is Revenge Porn?

Revenge Porn refers to the sharing of explicit or sexual, images or videos, without the consent of the person in the image. This is an issue among people of all ages from children to adults. However, the most commonly reported incidents have come from teenagers to adults in their mid-twenties. This is down to a breakdown in education and information that informs individuals of the serious consequences that could happen from sharing these images with anybody even friends.

When did this become an issue?

Reported cases of revenge porn have increased significantly in 2015 and 2016. With mobile phones becoming more and more intelligent and cameras being included as a standard feature on most models, sharing images has never been so quick and easy. This has led to an increase in people sharing intimate images with their partners via social media, text and other instant messaging services.
