Revenge Porn on the Rise – What Can You Do to Protect Yourself?

The following material contains mature subject matter. Viewer discretion is advised.

Revenge porn is a growing epidemic with 1 in 25 people becoming the victim of the vindictive act.

The Doctors weigh in on the estimated 10 million people who have had nude photos or videos posted online by a former partner without consent. A recent study found that 10 percent of spurned lovers threaten to post illicit content online and 60 percent go through with it. Additionally, personal information like your name, your workplace and where you live is often also shared by those exes posting revenge porn.

So how can you avoid becoming a revenge porn statistic? As The Doctors point out, nude pictures and sexy videos you take and share last forever. A good rule of thumb is never send or share a photo or video to someone that you wouldn’t be comfortable sharing with your mother or a close family member.

Another new tactic is a social media prenuptial that you can have signed prior to a marriage or a relationship that makes it illegal for the other party to post any images of you online. Though enforcing this type of prenup might be difficult, ER physician Dr. Travis Stork feels this will discourage people from sharing revenge porn.
