Early Wednesday morning, Kanye West created a media uproar when he tweeted a naked photo of Kim Kardashian, nibbling on a piece of fruit. As it turns out, the woman, who is only shown from the back, is actually porn star Amia Miles. According to TMZ, the porn star tweeted the photo of herself in 2011.
In recent years, the world has been bombarded with sexy photos and videos of everyone from former Disney starlet Vanessa Hudgens to the unfortunately named Anthony Weiner, former US Representative. The trend isn't just limited to celebrities. High school students have gotten in on the action, getting themselves into trouble with the school, their parents, and sometimes even the law.
Despite all these horror stories, people keep taking naked photos of themselves…have you?
Warning: NSFW photo after the jump
Technology has invaded every facet of our lives, and our sex lives are certainly no exception. Partner not physically available? No problem. You can still enjoy some sexytime through sexting and sending naked or suggestive pics. With Skype, you have the option to experience this in realtime video.
For long-distance couples, these tools can be a lifesaver. For the rest of us, they're just another pathway to instant gratification. Sure, real sex is great and all, but if you're not together, no matter. These will work too.
Of course, sexting and sending sexual photos and videos has obvious problems. You may trust and love your partner, but you have no guarantee they won't someday publicize your private material. Having Skype sex? Your partner could take a photo of you without you knowing. If you put something on the internet, it's forever. And you might one day slip and accidentally send these to the wrong person, like your boss or your mother.
But anybody will tell you that horniness oftentimes trumps good judgment. Sometimes, you're lucky and nothing horrible happens. Other times, the consequences can be disastrous - and how yours ends up is a simple trick of fate.
