Sexting and Revenge Pornography: Legislative and Social Dimensions of a Modern Digital Phenomenon

ISBN13: 9781138555778
To be Published: January 2021
Publisher: Routledge
Country of Publication: UK
Format: Hardback
Price: £105.00

This book explores the cultural phenomena of sexting and revenge pornography – looking at motivations for such practices, behaviours exhibited, intentional and unintentional impacts that result from redistribution, fallout and harm to victims and the attempts to address the problem through legislation.

Using the UK as a case study the book aims to provide a detailed rationale for the tension between a policy perspective that tries to provide protection for victims of such practices through legislation and the need to better understand a phenomenon that constantly evolves as a result of new technology, disruptive adoption and social norms.
