Can I ask someone for a nude?
It might be tempting to ask for a nude when you’re flirting or in a relationship. But it can also make someone feel uncomfortable or scared.
If you want to ask for a nude, think about:
- How the other person will feel
Being asked for a nude, especially when you don’t want to, can make a lot of people feel uncomfortable.
- How old you both are
It’s against the law to ask someone who’s under 18 to send a nude, even if you’re under 18 as well.
- Whether it will put pressure on the other person
Making someone feel bad for not sending a nude, even if you don’t mean to, is a type of pressure. If you’re not sure if someone would feel pressured, don’t ask.
- How you would feel in their position
It can help to think about how you would feel if someone asked you to do something you weren’t comfortable with or put pressure on you.
- What might happen if you do
Making someone feel uncomfortable or upset by asking for a nude can have a big effect on your relationship with them.
Even if someone sends you a nude or sexual message, it’s not okay to share it without their permission.
