We are talking about the distribution of explicit images or video of individuals without their permission.
The explicit images or video may be made by a partner of an intimate relationship with the knowledge and consent of the subject, or it may be made without his or her knowledge.
The possession of the material may be used by the perpetrators to blackmail the subjects into performing other acts, to coerce them into continuing the relationship or to punish them for ending the relationship.
That is how Wikipedia explains this term. And Ella Ciiru has lived this reality when her ex leaked intimate photos and videos a few weeks back. Ella who is a featured socialite on a KTN reality TV show, woke up one morning to find videos of herself serving as the fodder for gossip on Whatsapp.
I was having a conversation with Shaffie when the topic of revenge p*rn came up. I asked him for his take on the matter and a charged up Shaffie had a lot to say on the topic.
The general consensus we arrived at is that only weak men do things like this. My personal take, however, is that men need to mentor boys. We need to take responsibility for how the younger generation of men will behave.
Of special note is how to handle yourself when you get dumped. It hurts, we get it but there are 7 billion souls on this earth, 5 billion of those are women. Why would you get hung up on a lass simply because she left/ cheated? get you an upgrade son!
