    The subject came up in another thread of the propriety of sharing pics. One opinion seemed to be that once a pic is in the "ether" anything goes.

    There are various situations when people share photos. Here are a few examples.

    People share with BF or GF intended to be private

    Sometimes such sharing results in wider distribution.

    Some people share publicly

    Some pics are professional.

    Some are hacked.

    What kinds of pictures do you think shouldn't be shared and why?

    I think women should never share what they are not comfortable with. They can never get them back. Be careful ladies, and if you are wanting to test the waters, you can send them to me. ;)

    I agree, you can't get them back. I only share with the hubs and he too could be hacked, but, what's life without a little risk?

    Also, I don't feel guilty sharing a famous persons photo even if it could be hacked or photo shopped, or whatever, it's a risk they take as well and how are we to know, beyond the shadow of a doubt, what is to be shared and what was wished to remain private? If I see a photo has been shared on the WWW I think what's the harm in my sharing it too? It's a price we pay for our modern technology. IMO

    As far as the celebrities, most are probably photoshopped, but even at that, I think it's just a personal decision as far as whether to share. Personally, it feels a bit dirty, and not the good kind lol. But I'm not saying it's wrong. They're out there, it's going to happen.
    As far as photos that I share...if people take them and post elsewhere, I hope it doesn't happen, but I guess it's a compliment? Everything I post, I take that into consideration, which I why I don't share any with my face.....except for a couple trusted individuals. :D

    I feel like sharing pics that ware known to have been hacked is like seeing the robbery and seeing the robber drop some money. The money should be returned. My son once found $500 in an envelope. There was a name on the envelope so we looked up a phone number, called and returned the money. I believe in trying to do the right thing. Similarly, I would never share any of the photos here.

    I don't like voyeur pics, for a similar reason. They seem like "stolen" images.

    If photos are on the internet and aren't obviously voyeuristic, or known hacks, I feel like I can enjoy them. Maybe it's rationalizing, but I feel like they must have been put out there on purpose at some point. But maybe I'm just splitting hairs so that I can enjoy some nudie pics without guilt.

    I do wonder though when I watch porn if the participants are all totally willing. I hate the thought of some down on their luck girl being taken advantage of.

    I have seen some that looked so stoned that they may not have been aware of what's happening, that's not a good thought. I'm not crazy about the voyeur pics either, personally.

    I see what you are saying comparing it to stolen goods, I've looked at some, like when Jennifer Lawrence when she was hacked. I saw them but I didn't distribute or share or even say to anyone did you see such and such. The same photos could be stolen from almost any of us and we would be sickened for sure. I've even seen video of ladies on Chatturbait on sites like Redtube and wondered if they knew they were on that site, there was no name. I didn't watch but I have seen several.

    Absolutely the right sentiment. Certainly pictures posted within this forum should remain in the forum and pictures "borrowed " from elsewhere are pointless to say the least :)

    Well that's why I ask. I believe in self examination. I am a sinner by just about any standard. Aren't we all? I'm trying to understand.

    I share what I am comfortable with. I do wish for better privacy setting where I can block individuals I am uncomfortable with from seeing my pics.
    I don't think anyone should be sharing pics that are intended to be private.
    I don't like see people share pics of ex's
    I really hope no one steals my pics and posts them elsewhere (I am not good enough for that) I feel sad for anyone who behaves that way.
    I am careful about what I post in the forums as I can't remove them myself.
    Post your personal pic or that you and a partner have agreed to share only.

    Unfortunately, in many cases, not only are the participants not totally willing, they don't even know what happened until the DVDs hit the shops or the photos and/or videos turn up online. But by then, as many have stated in this thread and the previous one that inspired it, it's too late - because once it's online, you can never get it back. It will just keep getting shared over and over again. And the victims are left knowing that the recording of their assault will forever be getting likes and comments by people that don't realise what they're watching is indeed a violent attack:

    (Wanring, this article may be triggering for assault victims):

    http://www.miaminewtimes.com/news/l...-again-after-prosecutors-let-him-free-6385859

    I remember when these guys were being prosecuted, as it was being talked about in one of the modelling forums I use - one of several they were using to obtain their victims. But I also remember it because a similar thing was happening in my part of the world, involving girls I know. I'm not trying to be a scaremonger or putting anyone off porn forever - that is definitely not my intention. There is a lot of really good stuff out there that is made in a safe environment by creative people that absolutely love their jobs. But yes, there are also a lot of actual assaults circulating as "porn".

    As to the original question posted here, I generally only upload erotic/sexual content in which I was part of the creative process (i.e. I'm either in the photo or I took the photo - and in either case have permission from all involved to post it). Part of that is due to personal reasons (eg. golden rule), and part of it is due to professional reasons (being a repeat offender of the copyright and intellectual property rights laws that protect the industries in which I work would be like shooting myself in the foot). But it's also because in many cases, like the one I linked to above, I don't know what happened behind the scenes.

    My photos have turned up on 3 fake accounts In the last 4 years. on two occasions the photos had been cropped to try to disguise them.

    But what made me smile. Was the fact the photos were spotted by female members. just goes to show they do look at your galleries :)

    on a serious note. There have been quite a few revenge porn cases going through the courts recently in the UK. which must be a good thing to help reduce it.
