The World of Revenge Porn.

19th June 2014

A new trend affecting online privacy.

The terrifying trend of revenge porn is increasing in the UK and so The Pulse decided to investigate. This is a worldwide issue with legislation starting in Scotland, Ireland and Africa. We spoke to victims and campaigners in America and students in the UK who is raising awareness of the issue.

Take a listen to the full story of Revenge Porn and how it affects students here:

And the studio discussion had many different views:

Here are some of the many conflicting comments we recieved throughout the show:

But why are so many people taking naked pics of themselves and sending them to people? Surely it is entirely foreseeable that this kind of thing could happen.

No more victim blaming! The person who uses the photos maliciously is the one who is in the wrong.

I’ve been in a relationship for two and a half years and I still wouldn’t swap naked pics.

Of course victims of revenge porn are victims, but it’s still stupid to swap nude pictures.

The onus is completely on the perpetrator. I’ve had plenty of women send me nude photos because they want to, it’s fun, and they trust me. Nobody but me and them would ever know they have, because I have no hurtful, or criminal intent.
