Revenge porn is much more common than we think: “This is digital sexual violence, can have serious consequences”

According to recent research, revenge porn is much more common than we think. That says Liesbet Stevens of the Institute for the Equality of Women and Men. In recent days, nude images have been circulated by various BVs. About 15 percent of women and 3 percent of men in our country have already been pressured to forward nude photos.

For the past two months, victims of revenge porn have been able to turn to The Institute for the Equality of Women and Men. “In the last two months, we have already had to open 20 files for people whose intimate images were distributed without permission,” says Liesbet Stevens. This is a relatively large number, since counseling victims of revenge porn is a new competence of the institute and it often takes a while for people to find their way.

According to a recent study by the institute, the distribution of revenge porn is far more common than people realize. Of the 15 percent women and 3 percent men who were already pressured to forward nude photos, 15 and 7 percent, respectively, would already have experienced those images being distributed without permission.

Finally, 1 percent of women and 1 percent of men have already experienced those images being posted online.
