Are you sharing sexy selfies?
Should you be sending naked and sexy photos of yourself to people that you’re chatting with online? Probably not. There’s all kinds of risks involved – you don’t necessarily know if you can trust the person that you’re sending them to, there’s no telling where those photos are going to end up, and once they’re out there they have the potential to do some long-lasting damage to your reputation.
But the reality is that sending naked photos and sexy selfies has become a fundamental part of our dating rituals – particularly for queer guys.
It’s easy to tell yourself that you won’t be sending explicit photos to anyone, but if you’re looking for some fun, and the guy that you’re into wants to see a bit more before committing to a hook-up, odds are that you’re going to put the technology to work and show him the goods.
How can you protect yourself from having your sexy selfies going public?
Sending naked or sexy photos of yourself to anyone comes with some risks. Even if you’re using a secure platform, or an app that you trust, there’s lots of ways in which your photo could be copied, saved, and distributed across the internet.
If you’re sending out photos, you pretty much have to accept that people are going to see you naked.
Rather than getting too worked up about it, you can just make peace with the fact that it’s going to happen. Sure, it might be a bit embarrassing or awkward, but it’s your body. Whatever shape your body is, there’s nothing to be ashamed of. We’ve all got genitals. Laugh it off, people will soon forget about it.
One way to protect yourself a little in this situation is to assume that every photo you send could end up somehow going public. Don’t send photos of yourself doing something illegal. Don’t send photos that would cause you problems in your career.
Before you hit send on that sexy selfie – take a second look at it and make sure that you’re okay with seeing it on a Google Image Search some day.
