Dozens of women are fighting back after intimate photos they sent to former romantic interests have been sent by their exes to a so-called "revenge porn" website and posted online.

Holley Toups says that she was at work one day and a friend called to tell her what she'd seen online. It's the moment that Toups, a teacher's aide in Texas, says her life became a living hell.

"She said, 'I overheard some people talking about a website. Its pictures, you know, explicit photos that people have posted,' and she said, 'you're on there,'" Toups said.

Toups found semi-nude photos she said she once sent to a former boyfriend - now posted on the porn site.

"I just can't imagine why someone would do this to anyone," she said through tears.

Toups' pictures, along with those of dozens of other women, were on , a site where private photos, often taken innocently for a former love interest, are posted as a form of payback.

Experts say to avoid becoming a victim never take explicit photos of yourself for anyone. And online dating expert Julie Spira told ABC News that it may not just be photos that are sent to the site.

"Their email address, phone numbers, your home address also get posted along with these photos," Spira said.

That's what happened to Marianna Taschinger who says that a man she had been dating for a few months posted her private photos on the same site. She says he even called her "one of my exploits."

"He eventually got me to trust him and I did," Taschinger said. "I guess I didn't know that people were that horrible."

Toups, Taschinger and dozens of other women are trying to reclaim their privacy. Together they've filed a petition for damages, and hope to have a class action lawsuit certified against texxxan.com and its hosting company, Go Daddy. Calls placed by ABC News to Go Daddy were not immediately returned.

"These sites are all about public humiliation," attorney John Morgan said.

Shortly after the suit was announced moved from a free site to a subscription site and is now down, though there is no way to know if the photos may reappear somewhere else.

Toups said that she has will not be shamed by the images as she fights to the site.

"I don't regret speaking publicly about it if that's what it takes to make a change," she said.

I deleted the site but its in the actual article. To me, its just bringin more attention to what you didnt want others to see. the site is prolly loving the publicity

Side effect of the new social media driven world we live in. Some chicks want that Kim K effect mean.gif Combine that with good ole human nature and you get this. I mean, I know this is NT and we joke and bs around (I hope), but this is flat out mean. At the same time, when the pics are taken you have to have the notion in the back of your mind that somone could do whatever they want with the pics. Why would you do this when you date a person for only a few months? That's not long enough to build up trust to do this imo, but that's just me. People tryin to be fake *** porn starts mean.gif

People have been sending nudes way before social media blew up. Social media just makes it easier for said nudes to spread.

 

If you're that afraid if your nudes leaking, don't send them to anyone. Its really that simple. If you must send them, make sure your tattoos or any distinguishing mark is obscured.

Oh I know that, you just clarified what I meant, it's easier to send now. If you feel compelled to send nudes then make sure no distinguishing parts of you are shown laugh.gif

But that's the thing tho, some people have discretion and some don't. I know there is no way to quantify it but I'm sure there are countless people who regret sending something to a person who they thought they knew.

If you're that afraid if your nudes leaking, don't send them to anyone. Its really that simple. If you must send them, make sure your tattoos or any distinguishing mark is obscured.

Sending nudes couldn't have been nearly as prevalent before smartphones. What were people doing? Taking picks with 35mm cameras and then taking them to the store to be developed? And then mailing them via USPS?

 

Digital cameras and email made it somewhat easier but we didn't hear about so many nudes.

 

I think it's all these celeb sex tapes/nudes that aren't looked down upon anymore. It's seen as a way to boost ones celebrity image so all these chicks are running around believing that there ain't nothing wrong with sending nudes.

 

Giving someone ammunition in the form of nudes is asking for trouble. laugh.gif
