"... Alright, so really, how many of you clicked this because it said, "Teens" and "Nude"? Be honest."

It didn`t say NSFW, so no. I was looking to read about dumbass kids trying to rationalize their frickin` stupidity.

"as long as my ex remains trustworthy. o.0"
The exes are the ones who plaster them all over the web. Send it one person, and you say goodbye to you privacy. It is like the old adage that if you wanna keep a secret, keep it to yourself.

I remember a story about a teacher in england who while she was a student in university did a fairly raunchy ad that never got aired. Unfortunately for her, her students found it on youtube, and bye bye went her job at the posh private school

Is it illegal to have pictures of teens (13-17) nude? If so, wouldn`t everyone who saves the pics sent by those teens be prosecuted for cp?

so... 20% plus the extra 40% of people who lied during the survey. So, yeah. 60% of people have nekkid pictures online. That sounds more believable.

Hahahaha, I must say, I am guilty of this. Not my fault the girls back in Mexico miss what they can`t have anymore LOL. However, none of those included head shots hahaha. On a side note, I know there has to be more than 20%, that just sound`s too low...

Oh and SoxXxhXcxSeX, I hope you are kidding....

If not... Hey how you doing! :D hahahaha!

Bear in mind these are just the people who admitted to posting nude pictures. The real number is much higher, especially since bluetooth became commonplace I have to agree with pat 125 too, in fact some whores intentionally spread nude photos of themselves to "advertise" themselves for sex. Boy what a world we live in...

I like how 2/2 of the postings about teens posting nudies up online have said that your chance of keeping a job (the other one said getting into college) are much slimmer.

I believe that`s bullpoo.You`re just going to know at that point that your boss or the school`s dean is looking at that stuff online. Like they would even admit to it!

I think it`s fair to say that if you send nude pictures of yourself over the Internet, you`re a whore. This means that there are a lot more whores than I thought there were. You learn something new everyday.

you got to question how a prospective employer goes about explaining you failed to get a job coz a naked photo of your bum somehow found it`s way onto their computer.
