Chat room send dirty pictures free
Mark Wesley Liggins, 47, admitted having contact with five girls, aged between 11 and 15, through an internet chat room called KIK.
He engaged in sexual conversations with them and requested they send him nude or semi-nude photos of themselves, which they did.
But this also means the scale of rejection may be amplified for someone who casts out many lines but receives few (or zero) bites.
Online dating offers dramatically wider opportunities to find and approach other singles.
Add to that the heightened amount of control that women have over online conversations (politeness norms can make it more difficult to assertively deflect romantic advances in face-to-face conversations, nudging women toward showing greater politeness than they might otherwise feel) and you have what social psychologists might call “a masculine identity threat”.
In a culture where men are generally still expected to take the lead in sexual relationships, being denied all of these opportunities may make some men feel powerless in the online dating game and so turn to harassment or intimidation to try and re-establish a sense of power.
What would possess someone to send a graphic image of themselves without ever being asked for one, or even thinking to check if it might be appreciated?
When it comes to the internet, it seems common sense to think that the physical distance and anonymity the online world provides allows, even encourages, people to do things they wouldn’t normally do “in real life”.
