Someone said that, as soon as human beings found out they could represent what they saw in pictures, they started drawing naked bodies.

And now with mobile phone cameras and the internet, we can send these pictures to almost anyone in the universe. What could go wrong?

We’re not going to tell you whether or not you should send nudes.  What we can tell you is how to send them like a pro and not end up like a certain celebrity.

Before you continue, answer these:

Share the quiz to show your results !

Just tell us who you are to view your results !

Are you ready to send nudes? I got %%score%% of 3 right

If you answered ‘yes’ to all the questions above, then proceed.

Some of you that chose ‘no’ will still continue.


Anyway, here are a few things you should do:

1. Choose the appropriate location.

Background is everything. Don’t take a pic by an unflushed toilet or a dirty pile of clothes. Nobody wants to see that.

2. Never show your face.

Unless absolutely necessary, take pictures from the neck downwards only.

3. If you have any obvious and unique body art or tattoos, covering your face might not be enough.

4. Get the angle and lighting right.
No cheap overhead yellow household lights please. Use correct lighting. The best option is always daylight.

5. Get a file vault app for your phone.

You’ll want to safeguard your images, in case your phone falls into the wrong hands.

6. Use the right apps.

Twitter DMs? NO.

Facebook Messenger? HELL NO.


Snapchat? OK.

Wickr? YES!

Telegram (private)? YES!

You are learning. ?

7. Make sure to check and crosscheck the recipient of your very special pictures.

You don’t want what happened to this lady to happen to you now, do you?

8. And most importantly, assume that all your pics will end up on the main road anyway.

Now go forth and take those pictures.
