Sending nudes and sexting
Sexy pics flying around?
Find out what to do.
Sent a sexy pic already? Worried about what to do?
- Delete the sexy pic.
- If it is posted online, report it to the site.
- If you need help to get your pic removed, you can make an image-based abuse report to eSafety.
- If you sent it to someone, ask them to delete it.
- Report it to your school or the police to stop it being sent on.
- Respect yourself – you will be OK!
- You are not alone, you can always call Kids Helpline 1800 55 1800.
Show respect and keep it private
Remember, every nude picture you see online is someone’s sister or brother, son or daughter. Think twice before sharing any nude picture, whether it is of you or someone else.
Check out what happens when Bud, the local football hero, comes to town and encourages Sharlise to send him a photo of herself. But is Sharlise sharing more than she bargained for?
That's not team spirit
No worries checklist
- Think about who might see this.
- Delete sexy pics.
- Say no to anyone hassling you to send a sexy pic.
- Show the same respect you would want for your sister, brother or cousin.
- Be careful about taking, keeping or passing on sexy pics. They can get you in trouble with the law.
