Some young people tell us that taking and sending nude images makes them feel more confident about themselves and about their bodies, and can be a way to explore new relationships with others. This can make people feel betrayed, embarrassed, upset and disrespected, which is never okay.
It might sound like everyone is doing it, but that's not usually the case. The private nature of nude photos can mean lots of gossip and rumours get shared about them, which might make it sound like sending nudes is more common than it is. This Act states that anyone who creates an indecent image of someone under 18 e. Sending an image on like that, or saving an image like that, also breaks the law.
This Order states that anyone who creates an indecent image of someone under 18 e. In Scotland, there is a law called the Civic Government Act The National Police Chiefs' Council of England, Wales and Northern Ireland have stated that young people engaging in sexting should not face prosecution, especially for first time incidents, but should receive help and support.
In Scotland, local forces may also use their discretion when deciding on what action to take, to avoid unnecessarily criminalising young people. The situation will still be investigated to ensure that the young people involved are not at risk of further harm. Repeat offences and more extreme cases are reviewed differently, still with a focus on avoiding prosecution unless absolutely necessary. It can be really upsetting for someone if their nude image is 'leaked' and shared beyond the person they intended it for.
Others who see the image may think it's okay to blame, embarrass, or bully the person in the nude photo, which of course, it is not. The person in the photo may feel a negative impact on their self-esteem and their emotions. Images and videos can be shared very far, very quickly when online. It can be difficult to know for certain where an image goes, where it is saved and where it might reappear in the future. People such as future employers, universities, colleges or friends may make an unfair judgement about someone if a nude image is linked to their online reputation. On the other hand, if someone's involvement in sharing someone else's nude forms part of their online reputation, this does not show them to be a trustworthy person.
This is breaking the law and could be hurtful for the person in the image. Alternatively you may be able to report it online. Delete the image and talk to an adult you trust for their support. There are ways you can block others from contacting you or sending you things online. If an adult has sent you a nude image then delete the image, talk to an adult you know and trust for support and report the incident on the ThinkUKnow website.
Remember you are not at fault and that saying no is the right thing to do. Speak to an adult you know and trust for help or contact a helpline like Childline or The Mix. They can help you deal with the pressure, and offer support. This is not your fault. Secondly: get some support. Speak to an adult you know and trust, or reach out to a helpline for advice. They can support you in deciding what to do next and can help get the image taken down. Even if this feels like the end of the world, remember that you have lots of people who care about you and there are lots of positive steps you can take to move forward from this.
Socialising in person has been very limited during COVID, so you may have been using the internet and social media more to stay in touch with people, or even to make new connections. If your relationships are largely being played out online, there may come a time when you find yourself under increasing pressure, or temptation, to send nudes to someone you are speaking to. Even if you are connecting with people online more regularly, all the usual advice about sending nudes still applies. If you are under 18 then taking or sharing this type of image does break the law, and there could be other difficult consequences if it is shared on more widely.
