Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t get overly excited about the “latest” photo leak scandals. Maybe it’s because I relish privacy and wouldn’t want mine invaded. It could also be because I don’t have a reasonable expectation of privacy for anything posted on the internet, whether intentional or inadvertently.
That said, it doesn’t matter whether it was Jennifer Lawrence, Jill Scott, Kim Kardashian, or Gabrielle Union that had nude photos leaked, I don’t condone it nor do I want others leaked. I understand that grown people should be able to do as they please with consenting adults or alone if it’s legal. However, don’t get so caught up in technology that you fail to secure things for yourself. Don’t rely on others to secure your data (photos) for you.
If it’s so important to take that nude photo for your significant other, then go old school with a Polaroid Instamatic to alleviate any fears of a hacker getting your information. That sucker may be old school, but it is hack proof. It takes a bit more effort and planning, but you don’t have to worry about your ta-tas ending up on the internet for everyone to see. You might lose the spontaneity of sending a “reminder” of what awaits your significant other upon your/their return home, but you will gain the satisfaction of knowing your photo can’t be hacked.
Don’t let me ruin someone’s freak-a-deak moment. That’s not my intent. Just be a bit more security minded when trying to get your freak on. Contrary to popular belief, not all of us want to see y’all naked.
