Overview

As we integrate technology further and further into our everyday lives, we continue to face unexpected consequences – particularly, on the many ways it impacts our privacy. One of the most troubling examples of this issue is the phenomenon known as 'revenge porn'.

Revenge porn is defined as the sharing of private, sexual materials - either photos or videos - of another person, without their consent, and with the purpose of causing embarrassment or distress. Revenge porn is now illegal in the UK, where this documentary was made. Even so, the phenomenon occurs online with alarming regularity. Reports of revenge porn have almost doubled in the past year, and reality star Zara McDermott is only too familiar with the consequences.

Soon after her stint on Love Island, McDermott was informed that naked pictures of her had been leaked online. McDermott had taken these pictures of herself when she was just 14 years old. Seven years later, they'd gone viral. Angry, embarrassed and ashamed, McDermott was empowered to speak up on the issue. She soon discovered that she was far from the only victim.

"Ten years of my life has been affected greatly by an action I took when I was 14. I think about it every day. The moment I share that image of myself – yes, it's my body, but it's no longer my choice."
