1 in 10 ad­mit re­venge porn

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

NEARLY one in 10 adults have taken nude pho­tos or recorded footage of oth­ers with­out con­sent.

Researchers sur­veyed 4,200 peo­ple aged 16 to 49 and found more than six per cent had shared the im­ages or footage and close to five per cent had made threats to do so.

Nearly nine per cent of re­spon­dents had cap­tured im­ages or footage with­out con­sent.

And one in five sur­vey re­spon­dents had been vic­tims, ac­cord­ing to the Aus­tralian sur­vey.

Im­age-based sex­ual abuse is some­times re­ferred to as “re­venge porn”.

The study found men were sig­nif­i­cantly more likely than women to ad­mit the be­hav­iour and of­fend­ers were more likely to share pho­tos or videos of peo­ple they knew.
