On August 31, , a collection of almost private pictures of various celebrities, mostly women, and with many containing nudity , were posted on the imageboard 4chan , and later disseminated by other users on websites and social networks such as Imgur and Reddit. The images were initially believed to have been obtained via a breach of Apple 's cloud services suite iCloud ,    or a security issue in the iCloud API which allowed them to make unlimited attempts at guessing victims' passwords. The event, which media outlets and internet users referred to under names such as the "fappening" a portmanteau of "fap"—a slang term for masturbation —and "the happening" and "Celebgate", was met with a varied reaction from the media and fellow celebrities. Critics felt that the distribution of the images was a major invasion of privacy for their subjects, while some of the allegedly depicted subjects questioned their authenticity. The leak also prompted increased concern from analysts surrounding the privacy and security of cloud computing services such as iCloud—with a particular emphasis on their use to store sensitive, private information. The images were obtained via the online storage offered by Apple 's iCloud platform for automatically backing up photos from iOS devices, such as iPhones. There are claims that unreleased photos and videos exist. The hacker responsible for the leak, who described themselves as being a "collector", distributed the leaked images on the image boards 4chan and Anon-IB in exchange for Bitcoin. Celebrity gossip blogger Perez Hilton also re-posted some of the photos on his blog, but soon took them down and issued an apology, saying "he had acted in bad taste".
This February, Reddit announced changes to its policy to address harassment and abuse on its platform, and make it easier for victims of revenge porn to have their photos taken down. However, some of the most deeply creepy and misogynist sections within Reddit aren't affected by these new policies, as they don't directly involve revenge porn or direct harassment. Take, for example, the ones below. A reccurring theme through some of these outstandingly creepy subreddits is the sexualization of images of women in non-sexual contexts — at the gym or a wedding, for example. Others have contain some other violation of privacy or are just Here are the 8 most creepy of these NSFW subreddits. I have arranged them in order of what I personally find grossest to least gross. I am not including any photos in this list, for obvs reasons. One note: This list purposely does not include subreddits that contain mostly consensual pornography, even if the theme is a little more out-there foot porn, or more extreme BDSM, for example.
One of the best parts of living in the 21st century — an era bubbling with technological innovation! Think contraceptives with the kinks smoothed out and high-tech vibrators, for example. But also, shoutout to the most underrated sex toy of all time: our phones. Apart from access to porn and IG thirst-traps, our phones give us the ability to trade spicy texts with potential lovers, have phone sex, and send nudes. You may have sexted on Snapchat or dirty-talked on the phone before, but you might still be wondering: what is FaceTime sex? It's the act of FaceTiming someone for the purposes of getting off together.
