Try having an honest conversation with the person you sent the image to. Getting help The sooner you talk to somebody about the situation the better.

Even if you think someone is a bad person, or that they have done something to “deserve it”, it’s not ok to use their nude pictures against them. There’s also an issue of sexism, where it’s seemingly normal for boys to send nude pictures constantly, yet girls are shamed the second someone finds out they’ve sent nude pictures.
