Do I have a young reader? Probably not. I am not sure I would read my own blog if I was young. Nevertheless, here is a lecture to you younguns who don't read my blog. The word to focus on is 'selfie'.
In gay 'social media' sites.......ok, I am being disingenuous. In gay pick up sites or when using the gay phone app Grindr, an app that straight male comedians seem to find so fascinating, you will often be asked to send your photo via whatever system you are using. Sometimes it may be after a nice chat with someone, or even a 'stimulating' chat, or it could be as cold as a message from the blue from someone who you don't know, 'pic?'.
It is pointless telling you not to do it.You will, but I can offer you some useful advice, and that is don't send you face pic with an R rated pic. That also means don't include in your R pic an identifiable tattoo or body mark.
Just yesterday I heard of a young guy and girl chatting on Facebook, with him becoming increasingly suggestive and then unprompted, he sent her an R rated full face and body selfie in, shall we say, a state of excitement. She was very annoyed that he had taken such liberties and she looked and found his mother's FB profile and private messaged her a copy of the conversation and the photo he had sent.
So kiddies while some of you many not care, some of you will and you may very well end up on ugotposted.com . I don't like the site and I consider it a terrible invasion and a cruel and horrible thing to do to people, but I do look at it, really just to check if an Australian has been posted, and they are often enough. You may not care to look because there is nudity, girls and guys, so the essence is someone's face photos are posted, then their rudie selfie, followed by their full name and a linked url to their Facebook profile.
To summarise, keep your face pic separate separate from you rudie photo, watch what is identifiable in the background (your grannies crochet work), remember to not include any identifying body marks and then should you end up on ugotposted, deny, deny and deny again that it is your rudie selfie, unless you are particularly pleased with the association. In that case, just grin in a smug manner when being accused.
I'll bash off now. There is something on the net I must check out, again.
