Default Opinion on sending explicit

What is everyone's opinion on people sending explicit photos to other people? I don't always think it is a good idea, but being that people can have sex legally with each other at fourteen-sixteen, but can't send a nude photo at eighteen.

Just a discussion.

I agree with Fiona. It's a bad idea and illegal. It's child porn.

I'd be really careful with it, especially if you don't know the person. If you do, those images can be used to blackmail you. It's not a good idea at all. If you do it with your partner and trust her/him, it's fine, morally. Nevertheless, should always bear in mind that the person might share it one day.

Legally, it depends on the laws of your country. In Germany, it is technically illegal because of child (under 14) or youth (14-17) pornography. The law differs between those two types.
Even though it might be illegal, sending your own pictures to your partner or a close friend won't get you into jail, because the age of responsibility in Germany is 14, if you are 13 or under; and due to the law being constructed teleologically. Another aspect is the rule "Ubi non accusator ibi non iudex." Nobody will appeal to court because you have sent pictures to your partner. Moreover, the attorney will close the proceedings, probably.

If that's something someone wants to do, I say go for it. Just be cautious, once that picture is sent, you can't take it back for good. If you really want to do that kind of stuff, just know the retributions it can cause.

Teens do send pics but even if its between
someone who is the same age the pics could
fall into the hands of someone who is an adult
and then it would b considered porn. I would
not do it.

As a general rule, I'd say it's not a good idea. It might be different for an individual case, though.

It's never going to happen with me. Not a good idea unless you want your pics to be seen around the world by internet.

Don't

Treat all people in the same way you want to be treated. Love your neighbor as much as you love yourself. Dismiss hate. Embrace love.

I mean I think it's a bad idea because odds are, you'll regret it. The circumstances that enabled you to feel safe and comfortable are probably not going to last forever, and then when they do end you'll have a lot to worry about. Preventing that is easy, keeping your pants on for photos.

The OP mentioned 18, so idk if he is talking adults, or about in general for everybody, or minors. But I think the biggest thing is trust. I don't trust anyone enough to send a full body shot and include my face. GF included except recently I have made exceptions lol. But I guess for the longest time I didn't even trust her. I think if we break up it won't be a bad breakup, not bad enough for her to black mail me at least. But ya like the OP said if kids are gonna have sex then really imo sending a dick pic or a tit pic isn't that bad .... JUST don't do it to random people and include your face!!!!

I would recommend against it. even if your sending it to someone who you can trust, things have a way of still getting out. whatever pic you send, ask yourself if you would be ok with other people seeing it.

That being said, I'm going to admit that I'm a hypocrite. I'm 18, so there's no law against it assuming the receiving end is also 18. I do it with most of the girls that I've hooked up with.

maybe depend on situation, if u trust them then its alright or the pic itselft is not actually sexual pic.
There is one time my friend send my nude pic on our group chat, but that picture is taken from skinny dip together with my friend, so its not sexual pic.

I'm guilty of sending those pics. I know it is not the best idea but sometime horniness overtakes reasoning.

It's amazing how almost on a daily basis at school that some boy opens up his phone and shows all his friends a picture of some girl naked. Just saying that this isn't the brightest idea in the world!

On the question of age, there will be an age up to which someone is considered a child rather than an adult and "creating an indecent image of a child" is illegal in most jurisdictions. The exact age in question will vary from one place to another but I would expect that in most jurisdictions the fact the picture is a "selfie" does not change anything. That would actually mean taking indecent pictures (or video) of yourself would be illegal before you have even sent them to anyone.

Assuming you are old enough. the next problem is that once you have send a picture out there is no controlling where it will end up. Revenge porn made the news a little while back. Typically this happens when two people are in a relationship and as part of that send nude photos to one another, possibly at a time when they would liked to have been together but couldn't be. Some time later there is an acrimonious breakup and one partner starts sharing nude photos of the ex in order to get revenge by embarrassment. This just shows things change and someone you once trusted can turn on you and once a picture is forwarded on, you can't get it back. You can ask people to delete it but did they also forward it first? Is it doing the rounds in the next town or even in China?

So your ex. shows some pictures to friends and it is a bit embarrassing for a few days but blows over. The problem is solved, right? Not necessarily. Maybe you decide to run for political office, even just at a local level, and the press try to dig up the dirt on you? Or you go for a job that requires government security clearance; one of the things they are checking is whether you could be held to ransom so you can't afford any skeletons in the cupboard. Sometimes regular employers, especially in the USA, make enquiries into people private lives well beyond anything justified for the needs of the job.

If despite all this you do share pics then obviously you can limit potential damage by making sure if it cannot be identified as a picture of you. So no face, no certificate in the background with your name on, no GPS tags etc.
