Is it il­le­gal to send nudes?

CLEO (Singapore) - - BEAUTY -

Well, that de­pends on how many peo­ple you send it to. While the dis­tri­bu­tion of ob­scene im­ages is against the law, lawyer Dilys H Chua says it isn’t il­le­gal to send nudes to your part­ner. “There’s no el­e­ment of dis­tri­bu­tion if they are ex­changed be­tween two pri­vate par­ties. Ac­cord­ing to the Films Act, to ‘dis­trib­ute’ means ‘to sell, hire out and sup­ply’,” she ex­plains. In any case, re­mem­ber that there’s al­ways a chance that these nudes may be leaked—ac­ci­den­tally or oth­er­wise.
