I'd agree, but the posed, high quality and rather large quantity suggests to me that its a publicity thing. If its not, she's rather stupid about taking and sending out personal pics, it'd be fairly obvious that they'd leak at some point.

I agree that it must be fairly weird to have people look at your body without your permission, but it has to be fairly weird in general when your a woman. I mean, I'd almost say for most women, there's at least one person on your Facebook page who's only friends with you to masturbate over your pictures. Its not nice, but I guess its the world we live in...

There a celebrity nude trading rings on the deep web. The initial leak was from one person and asked for bitcoin 'donations' to release more. Since that initial dump, we've had a few more trickle out here and there with donations asking for different bitcoin wallets. There are more pictures out there, but they simply won't get dumped because that'll de-value them.

It's creepy, but certainly better than all the CP/drug-dealing/otherillegalshit that you'll find on the anonymous internet.

That's part of what makes it creepy and weird though.



If someone is hanging around the "dark" parts of the internet having got your hands on some celebrity nudity somehow and offering to trade it for cash or "bitcoin" it's not much of a stretch to suggest they may be suspected of other more twisted dealings

Aye, I guess, but that doesn't make it any less messed up. Either way, there's no consent in making the images public (of course, in the case of stuff like CP, it's all a hell of lot worse) so it's still fucked. And surely we all become complicit in that fucktitude* by even looking at the images.

That's true, although I actually think it's worse that everyone's spreading them around, at least before they had a very limited viewership. The creepiest ones were the girls that were underage that were lumped in with the rest.

Well yeah, consuming and sharing is obviously worse than just the former. It's all pretty bleak.

On the internet, there is no privacy. I'm hoping this is drilling that in to people's heads.

Yeah, although the person leaking these is a horrible person, putting nudes of yourself on iCloud is a bit silly. Especially if you are a high profile person.

It's frustrating that all the conversation around this refers to the images and celebrities in general. I don't remember seeing any furore over any leaked pics of male celebrities. This is all directed at female celebrities and their images. I'm sure many male celebrities have nudes on iCloud, but they're somehow safe to do that, there's no risk of their images being leaked on such a huge scale and such a storm being made of it.

I dunno. Seems like classic sexism to me, aside from the issues of privacy etc.
