    Am I going to get caught?

    I was texting my boyfriend last night and asked if he liked the nudes I sent him the other day. However, it turned out his mom was using his phone and saw the text. Although she has not seen any pictures, she threatened to tell my parents this Sunday at church that I’ve been sending nudes to him.
    My boyfriend said she won’t but I can’t help but feel terribly worried.
    I’m really scared and haven’t been able to think right since last night.
    What are your guy’s gut feelings telling you about my situation? Will she tell them or not.

    RE: Am I going to get caught?

    If I were you, I'd hope for the best but prepare for the worst. You know yourself that there's a pretty good chance she'll talk to your parents. Fingers crossed for you that she doesn't though.

    Sending nude photos is never a good idea because they have an annoying way of finding themselves out there on the web. Once you send a photo, even to someone you trust absolutely, you lose control over it (and your experience has shown you one way of that happening). Please don't do it again. You never know when these photos might come back and bite you.

    From what you write, you sound pretty young. I hate to say this, but feel I have to. Depending on your age, where you live, and how strict the laws are, nude photos of yourself can be considered, in some places, to be child porn ...

    Like I said, fingers crossed that all of this blows over and comes to nothing.

        I am actually 18+, but also thank you for your input. I’m still feeling a bit anxious but I really should prepare for the worst and hope for the best. Thank you again for your advice.

        Hi If any thing come back just say I'm a woman and I'm over 18, and it was my decision.

        End of story.

      • Hoping for you that it will blow over, but please feel free to check back here if it does not. While nohard's comment that you are adult and can make your own decisions is absolutely true, I agree with fcl that it is important to seriously consider your decision to send nude photos going forward. It's essential to be honest with yourself that by sending them, you may be making them available to anyone (e.g. the masses, your parents, your neighbors). It's easy to say that this won't happen to you; but this can happen -- and most definitely has happened -- in even the closest of relationships.
