    Q834: What is revenge porn and is it illegal?

    Revenge porn is the publication of explicit material portraying someone who has not consented for the image or video to be shared. The law now makes it illegal to disclose a "private sexual photograph or film" without the consent of the person depicted in the content, and with the intent to cause them distress.

    People found guilty of this offence may face a fine or even imprisonment.
