With the Anthony Weiner nude photo scandal being the center of attention in the media’s eyes–and everyone else’s…it brings up a few questions:

2. Should you even use social media when dating/flirting?
3. And what is the rule on sending or texting nude photos?

  • It all depends on what line you are talking about, since there are many of those.
    I would treat sexting (because this is what is about right?) as I would any other sexual act or advance in real life…..as far as who I engage in it with. The fact that its not physical doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. Not only that, if push comes to shove, no on can claim its your word against theirs…. since its all documented….
    I wouldn’t do it…. send images, that is. Once it leave you and flutters out into cyberspace, its not longer in your control, as Mr. W recently learned.

  • I personally think that these new technologies and social media platforms although they invite us to add a new fun level to flirting, they do pose a serious threat to privacy and intimacy. Maybe I’ve become too uncomfortable with the whole thing, but for me it’s a no-no— I just don’t trust cyberspace and people’s intentions after all, can we really trust anyone?! and I would diiiiiiiieeeeeee if I saw any picture of myself being passed around when it was only intended for one person to see…after you take the pic, you pass it along to your other half, boyfriend/girlfriend, fling, you lose control of it.

    Having said all that, certain social networks can be a lot of fun when flirting, and if you are comfortable with the “potential exposure” these situations can produce then go ahead and enjoy.

    • I agree–and I think we need to seriously think about….Is social media to blame?
      I don’t think so. Should we boycott hotels because that’s where the majority of people have affairs at? No.
      As always, we silly humans take a tool, opportunity, experience, and take it to the next level–and ruin things.
      It’s in our DNA, I guess. Oy! TO be human!

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts and I really hope you come back and share more!

  • Yip, I agree with Jessie. I don’t think social media are to blame any more than roads are to blame for accidents – it’s how people use them. We all know that sending pics of yourself around is not safe. Furthermore, high-profile individuals should think about what they send out there. What scares me is how well images can be altered or created and look authentic. Who’s to say (unless you yourself confess to something) that pics of you are the real thing?

    • True–and if you’re super PROUD of what you have–then you will 100% confess.
      Right? I think that’s what motivated Weiner!
