Cupid’s Advice:

Nude selfies have become increasingly popular in the dating scene and even in long-term relationships, as we’ve seen in this celebrity news. Though it may be fun to send a flirty text, there is always a risk in doing so. Cupid is here to help you figure out if nude selfies are right for your relationship:

1. Know your partner: First and foremost, you need to take into account who your partner is. Do you know them well? How long have you been together? Are they trustworthy and mature? These are all questions you should ask yourself before you snap that picture and hit send. You don’t want this intimate part of yourself to be accidentally or vindictively leaked.

2. Only do it if you want to: Sometimes a significant other may pressure you to send a nude photo. Don’t let them bully you into it. The person you’re with should respect your wishes if you don’t want to do it, and understand your apprehension if you’re unsure if it’s the right time to do so. Something of this nature should be your choice alone. You don’t owe anyone a nude selfie, not even a wife or husband.

3. Protect your identity: If you decide that you’re ready to send a nude selfie, do so in a way that protects your identity. Your face doesn’t have to be visible (you don’t have to follow Kim’s example). Even consider using a messaging app that provides an alternate phone number. Do whatever you can to ensure your privacy.
