Naked Selfies

Don't expose yourself to criticism by sending naked pics to unreliable sources.
Where to start on a topic so rich as this? I've felt many things in regards to stories about naked selfies.  The most recent and high profile release of one was of Jennifer Lawrence after she allegedly had them hacked from her phone. I haven't been tempted to look at them at all as that was her private business and I'm pretty sure she didn't make them for me to view- so I felt sorry for her that her intimate moment meant for herself or a loved one has been taken away from her.  I don't think  she should feel ashamed of herself as she clearly has every right to share this picture with someone if she wants to and no one has the right to take that from her.  It's really the selfie thieves that should feel ashamed.

I've heard so many times now about guys sending dick pics to girls and posting them on tinder etc.  Mate we assume if we're interested in guys then it's highly likely you've got a penis.  We don't need to see the proof and nor do we want to, if that's the best you can do you probably just are a dick and not worth bothering with. If you do want to send a dick pic then just send it to your mates- seriously- they are probably much more interested than us chicks.

What does seem to be highly prized and has stood the test of time are pictures of naked women.  In the past these pictures were more likely to be found in a Playboy magazine, or a 'dirty girls' calendar or such other smutty publication.  I suspect even getting your wife or girlfriend to agree to have a photograph taken of them in the nude would be a tough ask prior to the privacy of digital technology, as the embarrassing wait for photo's to be developed at the local shop would be too much to bear. But now that we all have our own personal digital device and can share pictures privately and quickly, the allure of sexting and provocative picture sharing has freed up a whole new world of foreplay and enticement.  Sadly though, if you send  your picture to an unreliable source they may expose you in ways you did not consider when you were all hot and heavy and snapping away.  If I'd even found a picture of a naked person when I was younger I'd have to physically take it and show it to people which would both limit the number of viewers whilst also exposing myself as an unreliable person to share secrets with.

I'm not sure why so many teenage girls seem to so easily gift naked selfies to sometimes even unknown guys.  Teenage girls risk opening themselves up to harsh criticism of their bodies and to having their picture shared far and wide amongst their peers.  I think if you send naked selfies to a teenage boy he is highly likely to share this trophy with his mates.  Girls, wait till you are in a long term relationship with a trustworthy partner before you start sending naked pics. Of course if you don't mind having heaps of people see you naked then snap away- though I suggest if you are under 18 you are probably not mature enough to make a good decision about this.  Also, just an idea, since these pictures are so sought after by teenage boys and since you would be the one taking all the risk why not try and get something for it. "$100 for a picture of my tits" once you've got the money just take a picture from google images and send it to him...
