In this rapidly changing digital landscape, people are constantly finding new forums and quicker methods of sharing or threatening to share exploitative images of people. Approximately one in 25 Americans have either had a nude or nearly nude image of them posted on the internet without their permission or have had someone threaten to post one.

This article from the online MSW program from the University of Southern California provides insight into the numbers of people impacted, across gender, age, race, sexual identity, and how revenge porn and sexual assault can affect a person’s mental health.
