Abstract

In this study, we investigated key distribution sites for online non-consensual nude and/or sexual imagery. Overall, our aim was to understand the nature and scope of image-based abuse material appearing on these sites. Examining the distribution sites represents an important companion to research that involves to victim surveys and interviews since victims of image-based abuse can only report on instances where they have become aware that images have been taken and/or distributed without their consent. This research investigates websites that victims may be unaware of, and thus unable to report on, in both qualitative and quantitative research projects.
