British Journalist Anna Richardson stripped [email protected] in front of her producer while making the Channel 4 documentary Revenge P*rn.
During the TV experiment, the journalist posed for a string of [email protected] snaps, which she later uploaded onto websites set up specifically for bitter exes desperate to humiliate their former partners.
The investigate reporter admitted she and her producer needed a ‘couple of stiff gins’ before stripping off to take snaps that she could upload onto the Internet for the Channel 4 experiment
In a bid to try and make the pictures look as authentic as possible, she took off her clothes and asked her boss to snap away.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, she said: “It wasn’t easy: candid, rough-hewn and explicit. But after a couple of stiff gins, my female producer and I took the plunge. Naked on my bed, I posed for a series of snaps taken on her smartphone as we laughed nervously at the surreal nature of proceedings.”
The following day, Anna uploaded the images onto a revenge porn website, posing as a bitter ex who had just discovered he had been cheated on.
Within two days, the pictures had been viewed 40,000 times – and those taking a peak didn’t hesitate to comment on the 44-year-old’s appearance.
“I know my body is a far cry from the Barbie-doll aesthetic,” added Anna, “but there were all too many men wishing to point it out. ‘Revolting’, wrote one. ‘She has clearly had children,’ wrote another (I haven’t). Most though, threatened abuse, talking in explicit detail about how they would hurt me.”
Anna’s pictures were later suddenly removed, which she believes was because someone had reported them as fakes or they had realised she was a journalist.
This caused her to come to the conclusion that people do not simply use these sites to see pornographic images, but because they get pleasure out of the humiliation of others.
She added: “They can get naked pictures anywhere. What they want is to witness genuine humiliation. And that should tell you all you need to know about this most horrible of worlds.”
