Sextortion has been the most commonly reported issue for the first time since the Revenge Porn Helpline opened, and this is an issue faced by men of all ages
Sextortion is real, the threats are real, but the person is fake. Why does this happen and what does it happen on?
Revenge Porn Helpline knows this is a huge issue with large amounts of content being shared, women are mostly subjected to this violence,
The report focuses on Helpline data from 2015 to 2020, the purpose being two-fold: it aims to outline the trends reported to the Revenge Porn Helpline (RPH) by its clients and demonstrate the effectiveness of RPH in supporting victims.
Since RPH was founded, there has been no formal report on the developing challenges and trends seen by RPH. This report will analyse our five years’ experience of working in this sector, postulate what trends may be seen in the future and assess how policy and RPH need to adapt to support future victims effectively. This report will also demonstrate RPH’s ongoing success in supporting victims of IIA and in the removal of online content. These outcomes are paramount to RPH; supporting people who are isolated by this abuse, allowing violated victims to regain control of their images and rebuild their lives.
