When Erin was 17, she went along to a seminar with her year 11 class where she was told not to photograph herself naked — and definitely not to send such a picture to someone else. An older woman who had experienced first-hand how badly it could go wrong warned that repercussions could come at once, if the image was shared without her consent, or in the future, if it came to the attention of potential employers. This was coming from a fairly liberal and progressive school. Then in person, that makes sex better. But she sometimes worries that those she has sent in the past may one day be circulated without her consent. For the best part of a decade, young women like Erin have been told by police, parents and schools not to take any photographs that they would not want shared with the world. They believe the issue should be approached from the perspective of harm reduction, and that only those who share the images should face repercussions, not those who take them. And they say society learns to see nude selfies — of both teenage girls and boys, not to mention adults — as neither demeaning nor empowering, but simply a part of life. But one of the challenges is changing the conversation when the curriculum and the law are already well out of step with the technology and the culture.

Lanskey told his victim he was 21 years old when they began talking in March Within three days of the conversation the victim's parents discovered the messages and reported the incident to police.

The most shocking part is how utterly normal this sort of revelation has become - as an internet safety expert, it's just another day at the office. I ensured she's referred to a paediatric sex addiction therapist, which unfortunately is now a necessary thing. She started watching porn on YouTube on a suggestion from a classmate, then progressed down the bottomless rabbit hole of YouTube's increasingly horrifying suggestions and eventually started seeking out even more egregious forms of sexualised content on sites like PornHub. It's one of the many chilling but all too common experiences I've had in recent years, while looking into the gutter world of social media.
