>I remember the last time I had this conversation with someone, last year (2017) around August. I found a new love partner, and after the long intimate talks on the phone, they requested the usual "intimate pictures", not necessarily sexual but certainly sexy.

Why the fuck are these a thing? Couples don't meet in real life much anymore? And how "usual" are they?

Anyone have stats on how widespread this is? My spouse and I avoid being in front of cameras naked even when we're pretty sure the camera isn't enabled. Not that anyone else would really want to see us nude, but why take a chance on accidentally recording material that could be embarrassing?
