Internet dating safety act new york
Nonconsensual pornography, commonly known as “revenge porn,” is the dissemination of another’s sexually explicit images or videos without their consent.This article explores this phenomenon in gay and bisexual male online communities.First, it shows that gay and bisexual men who use geosocial dating apps are more frequently victims of revenge porn than both the general population and the broader lesbian, gay, and bisexual community.
Once seen as the last resort for a bunch of lonely geeks, online-dating services have gradually shed much of the stigma formerly associated with them.
And third, it describes how gay and bisexual male users engage in privacy navigation techniques with the goal of building trust and enhancing safety.
The final substantive section then shows how inadequate protections for online privacy and inadequate legal incentives for safe platform design contribute to the problem of revenge porn.
The article concludes with a summary and avenues for future research.
