Revenge Porn Websites Growing In Popularity
UNDATED -- A teacher at a private school in Cincinnati is on administrative leave after nude photos of her surface online. An anonymous source sent the pictures to the website the dirty.com. The teacher's name hasn't been released but we know she works at Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy.
Thedirty.com is just one of many sites that allows scorned lovers to post compromising photos and insults about their exes.
The pictures that got the teacher in trouble were selfies, or nude photos she took of herself, that she probably sent to an intimate partner. Many of the pictures on revenge porn sites started out as sexting between significant others, but were made public when the relationship went sour.
It's no secret that sites like thedirty.com and myex.com promote revenge. Former spouses and significant others are allowed to post racy, even nude photos of an ex, along with other intimate information that was never supposed to be made public.
"We know people send these images as a way of trying to establish intimacy faster, quicker. 'I'm going to trust you and share this picture'," said University of Dayton Sociologist Art Jipson.
But Jipson says with the growing popularity of revenge sites, sexting between lovers can quickly take a wrong turn and end up online for anyone, including your boss, to see.
"It's really risky. It's just not a good idea," said Jamie Allen of Dayton.
"It's dangerous and you never know where they're going to show up again later in life," agreed Zack Driscoll of Dayton.
Most states don't have laws against revenge porn sites. Plus, it's hard to regulate photos that were willingly exchanged between consenting adults. That's why Jipson says we have to regulate ourselves and not send the sext in the first place.
"People have a false sense of security. I'm not standing up in the public square taking my clothes off. I'm only sending it to that one person, or so I believe," Jipson said.
You can get your pictures and information removed from the revenge porn sites, but it'll cost you $500.
