Okay class; let’s recap what we’ve learned so far.
- Don’t send naked pictures of yourself to anyone who seems to struggle with technology. It’s like laughing in the face of fate yelling, “I dare you to post pictures of my naked self on the internet.” It may have been an accident that your boobs/dick/vag/ass wound up on Facebook but now they’re there and not everyone has an understanding ex who’ll take them down, restoring peace and serenity to the world of cybersex.
- Don’t, no matter how hot you know you are, send identifiable pictures of yourself to anyone unless you are trying to make some money. If you think your body is that amazing and don’t give a shit who sees it, you should be making some money off of your hotness.
- Don’t keep naked pictures of yourself on your phone. Take a picture, send it then delete it. It isn’t that difficult to take more. Keeping a stash of nudie pics of yourself on your phone makes you seem conceited, kind of slutty (that goes for men and women) and/or lazy.
- Personal pet peeve: Put your dirty pictures in a folder that is easily accessible to you but not interspersed with pictures of your children. That is just gross and weird and GROSS!
Now that we’ve got the common sense portion of the class out of the way, I want to share a little bit of insight. I’ve learned some things not necessarily related to the dangers of sexting. Here’s what I’ve learned from gaining access to a guy’s cell phone pictures.
What I’ve learned from this Experience
- You know how a man will tell you your body is amazing and he doesn’t care what it looks like… Based on what I saw, that is absolutely 100% true. A naked woman is a naked woman. Men truly don’t give a shit. If they are attracted to you or want to sleep with you then how you feel about your body is moot. They want it.
- Getting pissed off or insulted because you know you are hotter than the chick your ex is dating now is a waste of time. Why? Refer to the above lesson.
- Think twice before sending a picture of yourself to someone you aren’t in a relationship with and even then think about what that person is capable of. I know a girl who’s ex-boyfriend (and father of her children) posted craigslist ads in casual encounters, using her number and naked pictures of her, after they broke up. Fucking twat!
I don’t think there is anything wrong with sending pictures to your partner. It is fun and sexy but shit happens and that shit is in the virtual world forever. With apps like Dropbox and cellphone providers constantly backing up your media as part of your regular service those pictures are somewhere in the virtual world forever.
Just be careful and conscious of what can happen because it may just be an accident but odds are the intended recipient of that picture isn’t the only one who’ll see it. You have got to protect you!
