Think sexting and a lot of things come to mind… Fun. Even romantic. But sexting and sharing nudes are not new. People have been creating and exchanging erotic imagery, photos and letters for centuries. Even teens and young adults do it, despite the risks involved. So, is telling youngsters to not sext really the solution? And what are the risks associated with it?
Needless to say, the first thing to ensure is that you trust the person to whom you are sending this media. There have been several instances of people forwarding the nudes they receive to others, without the knowledge of the sender.
This can lead to crimes like blackmail, cyber bullying and more. Take WhatsApp for instance. This is what happened with a woman in The hacker accessed some explicit photos and videos she had recorded and sent to her boyfriend at that time. And while this woman chose to shame the hacker on social media with screenshots of his blackmailing s to her and also got support from her family, not everyone can afford to do this.
In order to have more control over how these photos and our data is stored, Nayantara R, Program Manager at the Internet Democracy Project, says that we need to understand the differences among various technologies and apps that we use. However, it admits that this entire combination could not be found even in nd nudes apps they had mentioned. For instance, the app al does not let one take a screenshot on the phone, however, one can easily take a photo using another phone.
And while Telegram is nd nudes than WhatsApp according to some experts, and also has self-destruct option for messages, it does require you to register with your mobile. Coding Rights advises that you could also try encrypting your phone with strong passwords, and keep explicit and intimate photos in an encrypted folder, the password of which is only known to you. When using such networks, prefer apps that offer encrypted connections with https in the address bar or download a VPN app […] every file sent through an app is also sent to a server that is owned by a company.
Another precaution you could take is to use applications that allow you to erase the metadata of the media you are sharing. That means, erasing the details which attaches with photos when they are created - date, time, phone on which it was clicked, file size etc. Both Nayantara and Siddharth add that you can also reduce the risk by not having or blurring your face, identifying marks and belongings in the photos and videos.
While you can take the above precautions, experts say that none of these methods is fool proof. And in an ideal world, one should not have to worry about these issues. But the answer does not lie in scaring youngsters into not sexting at all.
Sexting needs to become a part of a larger conversation on sexuality, consent and healthy relationships, experts say. They add that because nd nudes is so routine today there is pressure on youngsters to indulge in it. This is especially important because the more taboo we make sexuality, the more likely it is that those who explore it will do so in secret and without proper understanding of a healthy relationship.
