I have a friend who recently fell into this situation. She was dating a guy and she let him take some… risqué pictures of her, to say the least, and save them on his cell phone. After they broke up, he actually sent those pictures out to her friends and her parents… it was not a good situation at all. My question: would you let someone you are dating, or even your husband/wife take risqué pictures of yourself knowing that something like this could happen if you split/divorce? Let’s say you suddenly become famous and these pictures are out there… would you pay to get them back or have them not be released?

I have had risque videos & photos taken by my late husband & a later boyfriend. Nothing ever happened to them & they were eventually destroyed. However, I have to agree that people need to be extremely careful when allowing this to happen.

Hopefully, this never happens to me or anyone I know. Honestly, those pictures were taken in confidence. If this guy was a real man, he wouldn't be that vindictive, even if the break-up did hurt him a lot. I see this as a maturity issues. If that guy wasn't mature enough to do right by his ex, then he's not worth being in a relationship with. If my husband ever took pictures like that of me, just for fun while things are good, I would trust that if we ever split, God-forbid, he would have the decency to not make those pictures public. It's like secrets. You tell them to the people you trust not to back-stab you, even if you hit a rough patch with them. Although, if I ever do get into a similar situation, I don't know how I'd react. I tend to be a worrier.
