A Story...
A young girl (under 18) is asked to send a photo of herself either nude or partially – nude, to a potential boyfriend
. She takes the photos and sends them to him
(Creation and Distribution)
. He receives them and keeps them on his phone or computer
. He promised not to show anyone else, after all that’s the only reason she made the photos to send to him, right? ...

...The two date for a while, and then one of them decides to break up. The now former boyfriend (or girlfriend) either out of spite or showing off, sends the photos to his friends
. The police become involved when someone makes a complaint. Often times the school, the girl or parent files the complaint because they want the circulation to stop. While the officer can prosecute, controlling where the pictures have been or will be is out of our hands.

40% of teens report being shown sexually explicit messages or photos that were originally meant to be private.
20% report having shared messages and photos with someone other than the person from whom it was originally meant.
20% of teenage girls say they have electronically posted online nude or semi-nude photos of themselves
33% of teenage boys says they have electronically posted nude or semi nude photos of themselves.

Think Before you SEND

It doesn’t matter if it was a joke
It doesn’t matter if the person agrees to have their photo taken
It doesn’t matter if they person takes a picture of themselves.

If the pictures are sexually explicit and of someone under 18 years old, it does not matter why!
