What does NCP Mean?

The term “revenge porn,” though frequently used, is somewhat misleading. Many perpetrators are not motivated by revenge or by any personal feelings toward the victim. A more accurate term is nonconsensual pornography (NCP), defined as the distribution of sexually graphic images of individuals without their consent. This includes both images originally obtained without consent (e.g. by using hidden cameras, hacking phones, or recording sexual assaults) as well as images consensually obtained within the context of an intimate relationship.

How do I know if I am a victim of NCP?

Do a search on your full name using Google and/or Bing to see if any offending material pops up. If this doesn’t produce any concerning results, do a reverse image search on Google with the photos that you are worried might be on the internet. Instructions on how to do this can be found here: Reverse Image Search . It’s completely normal to have some concerns using the link. However, rest assured the photos you upload to this tool will NOT be posted to google or any other website through this.

What steps should I take to document the images/postings?

An important step for victims of NCP is to capture screen shots of everything and save them to a folder on your computer – capture screen shots of the websites’ pages, results from a Google search of your name, and any texts, messages, friend requests or emails you received as a result of the posting. Then print everything. This will serve as your evidence. This link has instructions on capturing screen shots: http://www.take-a-screenshot.org/.

Don’t fall victim to this seemingly innocent act, it is a felony in Nevada!
