One woman recently shared the lengths she went to delete nudes of herself on her ex partner’s cell and all I can say is: Jana you are my hero.
Jana Hocking recently shared here harrowing story about regretting sending a “chelfie” — a name she created that can be defined as a picture of someone’s breasts — after her relationship took a turn for the worst.
And as she was worried of her ex sharing the photo, Jana shared her experience, posting to Whimn, saying:
“A few years ago I broke up with a guy who didn’t take it very well.
I was well aware he had a boob shot of me on his phone (yes, shameless, I know) and the thought he might revenge-share it was very real.
So I did something I never thought I would do.”
Jana then shared how she actually had to break into her former S.O.’s house and go on his phone to find the image and delete it:
“I arrived at his house super late at night when I knew he would be asleep, snuck through his window while he was snoring up a storm, grabbed his phone, scrolled through his photos, found the offending shot and deleted it before commando-rolling the heck out of there.
To this day, I thank God that fingerprint identification hadn’t been invented yet.
It got me thinking, though: Are these the lengths women now have to go to in order to protect themselves online?”
Jana shared how she did not want the whole world to see her chest (and rightfully so) but said it was never on her mind when she sent the photo — and that is something a lot of folks fall trap to.
She also goes on to say how she has “regrettably” had her male friends show her images sent to them by girls who probably assumed the images were only ever going to be seen by solely the receiver of said texts.
And despite the concern, Jana believes there is nothing wrong with sending “a saucy pic” but wants others to be aware should things turn sour in the relationship — preparing for the fact that your images may get seen by other people.
But Jana’s concerns bring up an ugly truth.
In a recent study by the Kinsey Institute, it was found that 23 percent of people surveyed admitted to sharing sext images they receive.
Over 5,000 adults between the ages of 21 and 75 were participants for the study and said they shared the images with an average of three or more different friends.
But think about this: thanks to advancements in technology — it will be harder to get into someone else’s phone if they have the fingerprint identification or face recognition feature.
Her last piece of advice reads:
“So while you’re still more than welcome to send that special someone an extra-special photo, my advice would be to take off all identifying jewelry, pose like a queen and make sure you crop out your face before you hit send.”
Yes and amen sister, yes and amen.
