Sending Nudes: What You Need To Know Before You Send That Sexy Picture
The internet has changed the way we meet people, fall in love, have fights, romance each other, break up, and… have sex. Back in the late 80s, and early 90s, before we became digitalised, having phone sex – that is, dirty talking and doing things to yourself while on the phone with your lover – was considered revolutionary. Now, foreplay comes in the form of sexting, which is just a euphemism for sending nudes.
Most of us, at some point, have been demanded a nude or demanded one, and have considered sending it, too. But, for all its wonderful gifts, the world wide web is not all that safe. In all honesty, phone sex was a lot safer than the current virtual lives we find ourselves confronted by.
But hey, it’s a free world, and if exchanging naked pictures is what turns you on, then you have the right to send them across. But, before you do, there are a few things you need to consider…
1. Safety. The utmost important thing for anything online is making sure you are safe. Your pictures, once online – whether on WhatsApp or email, or any other medium – are easy to copy, save, and share. We all know the kind of scandals and breach of privacy that have happened because of this. The best way to protect yourself from having your breasts flaunted to people you may not even know, is to not send that picture across, but if you must, be wise about it.
Crop your face. Keep the surroundings discernible. Cover tattoos, piercings, birth marks, or any other identifying features you may have on your body. YOU NEVER KNOW WHERE THAT PICTURE WILL GO!
2. Is it really important to your relationship, or fling, or whatever it is that you are doing? Ask yourself this before you hit the send button. Will this guy lose interest in you if you turn his overtures down? If no, then do you really want to send it, and risk his friends and family casually scrolling down his photo gallery and stumbling upon a naked you? If yes, then is he worth your time?
3. What is your idea of romance and seduction? Sex is not limited to the actual act. Sex is about desire, suspense, romance, and seduction. The moment you send a nude picture, you kill the anticipation. Of course, if you are not going to be seeing your lover anytime soon, this may not apply to you. But, hey, back in the day, people went months without seeing each other, even in pictures, and managed to continue to desire each other! So, ask yourself – what’s the rush?
