If you have been a victim of revenge porn the Revenge Porn Helpline is there to help you.
What is revenge porn? Revenge porn is a term used to describe sexually explicit media that is publicly shared online without the consent of the pictured individual. Content is often uploaded by ex-partners with an intention to shame or embarrass an individual, linking content to the person's other online content, such as Facebook, LinkedIn or even work websites, along with personal information including addresses and telephone numbers.
Sometimes this content is also directed at family members to cause maximum harm to the victim.
Victims and support professionals can contact the Revenge Porn helpline between 10-4, Monday to Friday by telephone or anytime via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Revenge Porn Helpline also has an anonymous online reporting tool called Whisper.
The Revenge Porn Helpline has been funded by the Equalities Commission to provide a dedicated support service for anyone affected by this issue in the UK. Victims come from all backgrounds, male and female. Some incidents are perpetrated by ex partners, some by strangers, via hacking or stolen images. Whatever your circumstances, Revenge Porn Helpline will do their best to help
