Before you share those nude photos...
My mamas house is what Id like to call a half way house. As a lecturer many young men and women have passed through her as my sisters and bothers. One of such is a young student who repairs all kinds of gadgets including laptops on the side to make extra money for school.
We had a conversation about a difficult but rich hummer driving client he had. He then disclosed that the man had a huge folder of nude chicks on his laptop which he had to copy onto another hard drive. These aren't pictures off the net, these are all girls he has had/has "relationships" with.
My young pal informed me that most of his male clients have such folders on laptops, usually uploaded via phone. Of course he gets to recognize many of these girls since many are students and hes one as well.
The casual manner in which women take and allow taking of erotic photos of their persons is amazing. I dont mean one of acts, I mean it becoming a norm, Sharing these pictures is also such a naive act. Phones can share with other phones. Pictures can go online. They outlast your "relationship".
Now on to online flirtations. Sharing erotic pics/vids of yourself with your online love of the moment is really ill advised.Twitter, facebook, yahoo chat, etc. It NEVER DIES. Chicks who are students, professionals, educated dont seem to understand this.
I know guys who SHARE pics daft girls/women send to them via twitter etc with their friends so they can decide which one moves in on her next after they are done, based on how cute her boobs, ass or masturbation techs are. Im afraid some of these chicks are "correct" ones. Men aren't left out in this lewd picture distribution though they seem to be a tad more careful or should I say the market is in their favour.
I know people now save erotic chat sessions to use as insurance once things turn sour.
Is it desperation?
Can we blame it Paris Hilton or Ms Kardashian?
Is there a new definition of sexy we must live up to?
Are people just unable to grasp the wider consequences?
Is there a sense that the internet is a different universe unconnected to life?
Are we just a repressed society that embraces anything that seems covert even if its as obvious as daylight?
I do NOT even want to know what the practice is amongst teens. Its the adults that guide teens that leave me gasping.
Please share your thoughts.
