Article “Revenge porn on the rise”

Privacy violations involving revenge pornography are on the rise in Myanmar but seeking legal remedy can be a daunting experience for victims.

By JAIDEN COONAN | FRONTIER

Revenge pornography may seem an unlikely problem in a country with a sexually conservative culture like Myanmar but it has become increasingly common as more people use smartphones and the internet. Celebrities and ordinary citizens alike have been affected.

Victims of revenge, or non-consensual, pornography are understandably reluctant to discuss their experiences, but many people interviewed by Frontier knew of someone who had been humiliated by intimate images circulated by an ex-partner, or had heard similar stories from friends.

It has even been claimed that unscrupulous mobile phone shops have copied intimate images while servicing smartphones and have shared them online without the consent of the party or parties concerned.
