We could say that there is nothing wrong or shameful in wanting to express your sexuality through nude pictures, especially not if this is today’s standard and that is what everybody does. However, remember that we are learning from society how we have to express our sexuality, but are there other ways?? On many platforms, such as media, social media, ads, music videos, magazines, porn, etc. the bodies of young women and women generally are highly sexualized.
Because we see those images every day we feel this is normal and we could feel that we have to be and do the same.
Remember you are NEVER obligated to send a nude picture, or to partake in ANY sexual activity that you don’t want to do. With any sort of sexual activity, you should be aware of the potential risks and how to do whatever you’re doing in the safest way possible.
It could be really hard to make a decision when someone you love or care about is asking you to send a nude, even though you may not feel like doing it. That’s a really scary situation to be in, as you don’t want to be unpopular or cause this person losing interest in you. But remember that you should never do anything you’re not comfortable with.

Sending sexualized pictures of yourself and/or nudes is quite popular, but you can always choose not to be part of it.
DONʼT FALL FOR ʻLIKESʼ,
Who are you sending them to
– if this is a person you know or are in a relationship with, it might end, and what you have shared could be used as revenge porn.
– if it’s a person, who you only know online, you can’t really know who’s on the other side and where your pics will end up.
Remember as soon as you have pressed the send button, it’s out of your control!
Ask yourself would you be ok with what you have sent being on a billboard in town or your family seeing it. If not don’t send it!!!!
Still, not all nudes sent are mutually appreciated. A new trend of sending unwanted nudes is happening – either to known or unknown persons. This is also the case with “dick pics” (the name says it all).
Many women and girls active on social networks have at least once received an unwanted dick pic!
You may say “I will survive, it’s no big deal”, or “that’s how guys are”, but still it’s not ok. Society and porn culture push girls into believing that they need to accept sexual advances otherwise they will be considered frigid or unpopular. Some guys may think this type of communication attracts girls’ attention and will get them to send similar nude images back. Some may get off imagining that someone is looking at their “work of art”. However, sending these images is offensive. Some girls receiving them may be scared and although some find it funny, generally such content is not welcome and not ok.
Sooooooooooooooooooooo? Should you send dick pics? NO! Specifically not to people who haven’t ask for it!
Just because everyone is sending them, doesn’t make it less offensive!
