If there's one thing I should know by now, it's that there is NOTHING too stupid for the Internet. It's kinda why I have a job. But wanting to believe that people have better judgment doesn't make it so. It turns out that not only are post-sex selfies a thing, but before-sex selfies are as well (though not nearly as popular; if there are during-sex selfies, I don’t even want to know).
Since it's clearly not OBVIOUS why this is a bad idea, here's why it's a bad idea:
Since sex is the subject, I’m going to make an analogy here: sharing photos on the Internet is like having unprotected sex. When you share a photo, you’re not just sharing it with the one person or group you choose to share it with – you’re sharing with all of that person’s friends as well. Just like when you have unprotected sex with someone, you’re basically sleeping with every person they’ve ever slept with. Taking precautions just makes sense. When you don’t, you suffer the consequences.
In the end, it’s up to you how much risk you want to expose yourself to. Just don’t say we didn’t warn you.
